Winemaking Consult - 30-45 min
I'm excited to share my knowledge, experience, and passion for making wine at home!
I know winemaking can be intimidating to get into, and I'm most excited to help people get started in the hobby. It doesn't need to be expensive, difficult, or stressful to make your first batch of wine. I'll be happy to tailor the session to your needs, anywhere from beginner to advanced. Beginner sessions may include how to get started, what equipment to buy, some good beginner recipes, etc. Advanced sessions may discuss differences between ingredients, yeast selection, how temperature impacts taste, how to measure ABV, etc.
I have a library of dozens of books we can consult during our session to make sure you get the best advice and ideas to make a successful homemade wine.
Training & Qualifications
I've been making wine for the last four years. My passion is for using locally available ingredients to made adventurous and fun wines. Some of my favorites have been Mead (fermenting honey into wine), Acerglyn (fermenting Maple Syrup into wine), and Fruit Wine (fermenting a combination of fruit and sugar into wine). I've made dozens of varieties, scoured the internet and books for creative ideas, and have many of my own tried and true recipes I'm happy to share with you.
Availability & Preferences
I'm usually free in the evenings (5pm - 9pm EDT) and on weekends.
