I have 30 Champourcin vines that I planted this spring and to my surprise I have some fruit already. I have been monitoring the Brix and it seems like it has kind of stopped at 17.5. It has not increased in the last 10 days. I know that the brix is too low to make wine and that if I picked now I would have to add some sugar which I would prefer to avoid. So my question is should I wait longer ...

I saw an old post where you said you had an oil free aspirator with guage and regulator. Where did you find that? I have a vac pump but when it needs replacing I'd rather go with oil free (since the oil one puts out some smoke). Thought I'd ask now and just keep the info till I need it.

You were looking for grapes. I was going to link you up with Central Texas Wine Guild. We make a group purchase of California Grapes. We have filled all of our pallets and are no longer taking orders.

I still stick to the original but did make a improvised batch using Mt. Morency concentrate and Nanking cherries. No real recipe, just winged it and it turned out good.

Are you still making Nanking Cherry Wine? If you are - do you have a revised Jack Keller recipe or are you sticking to that original?

Howdy from Cheyenne, WY! I had my first sip of homemade berry wines at a friends back in 1983 while "ditching" during High School. What a memory -we all went to jail because we decided after a couple of bottles and a lot "tipsy" to ride the horses up to the school - Parents guard your wine -
