It is a great hobby and if you like wine, you can not beat homemade wine that you have made. You can share with your friends or just keep it all to yourself. Once you get the equipment and ingredients you can make wine from .50 cents per bottle to 3.00 dollars per bottle which is cheap.
But it’s really not about the savings, its about the taste. Literally this recipe is the best Fruit Wine I ever have tasted and have been told by others that as well.
So if you are just starting out in the hobby, give it a try it really is not that hard to do yourself. You don’t need a lot of fancy equipment, even though it makes it easier sometimes. I’ve seen people make wine out of soda bottles, milk jugs and everything in between.
Feel free to reach out to me anytime and I will gladly help you along in your hobby, because that is what this channel is all about. Share How To videos of things I have learned over the years to make life easier. Work smarter not harder as they say.
