    I noticed there are alot of people on the site wanting to become self sufficient so I was wondering how many of you make your own wine or if anyone has an interest in learning how? We make fruit wines and Muscadine blends and have taught some of our friends how to make wine. It really is easy...[​IMG]

    There was a thread on this some time ago. Seemed like quite a few who do or want to. I am waiting for my Elderberries to try it this year....almost afraid I am going to kill someone but want to try (to make wine, NOT to kill someone). I wanted to try dandelion wine but, believe it or not, I didn't have but two or three dandelions!!!

    Believe me, if it goes bad you'll know it, it'll mold! Elderberry will be excellent though...it's supposed to be really, really good. hubby has made everything else except that and citrus.

    I have heard it is really good. I kinda lucked out....when they built my house almost everything was bulldozed except for some huge trees and this awesome elderberry bush right in the front yard. It is loaded every summer. I checked a few days ago and looks like it will be again this year. So, you don't think I can kill someone with this stuff????? LOL

    You could kill someone, or blind them if you were to make white lightning, there may be truth in that, but not wine.
