Welcome to my wine and beer making site!
I made my first batch of wine in May 1981 and my first beer in January 1984. On these pages I record my adventures in both arenas, along with a few white papers I’ve written on these subjects.
While this site is a personal record that means more to me than anyone, I’ve recorded most of my recipes including the methods used and wine/beer making notes, so the information may be useful to others.
The Malbec, Merlot, Zinfandel, and Second Run Blend are currently in process, along with a Pinot Noir kit:

Wine Making: This menu contains lists of current and finished wines, along with various lists of everything I’ve made.
Beer Making: This menu contains lists of current and finished beers. I don’t have an overall list as I don’t make a lot of beer.
Blogs: Here’s you’ll find general blog posts (non-recipes) that talk about wine or beer making in general. There are also “white papers”, documents that describe technical points to the best of my ability.
