I am not organized. I just brew. I looked at recipes on the web and saw
water and juice. I asked a friend who told me that if I wanted it to taste
like water, add water. If I wanted it to taste like fruit, use fruit. I
wanted fruit and I need to use fruit so I used fruit. You can start with a
gallon jug and an airlock and some yeast. Even bread yeast. It is not
right but it will work.. Give it a try. Aging is really interesting.
Really really interesting. For that you need bottles, corks (hardware
store) and a rubber mallet. It helps if you label it.

I like cloudy juice.. actually it does clear when I can it. I made a
wine with it years ago.. It cleared. I did not do anything special.
Just let it set in the bottle. The sediment happened. When I make wine
and mead they often come out cloudy and settle out with time. But as I
said.. that is not an important thing for me.

Isn't fiber supposed to be good for you? lol

Naomi/Don Yellman,

What caught my attention was the "made wine" information. I would like
some information that can help me (a novice) make wine from the fruit I
get out of my orchard (cherries, grapes, apples, elderberries,
raspberries, etc.) Any reference materials or classes anyone could
recommend that would get me from "duh" to "oh!" would be appreciated.
