    I forgot about posting the recipes.

    I currently have 2gals of Concord juice wine aging and 1 gal of Cranberry wine aging. Still have the 6gal Chardonnay aging.

    Drank all of the meads long ago.

    Made a watermelon wine from some watermelon juice, sugar and cotes de Blanc yeast. It finished and carbonated lightly by itself. That gallon has been fully drunk. ''Twas tasty.

    I need to get some more 6gal primary fermentation buckets/carboys. 1gal jugs ain't enough.

    I also need to get a corker and bottles too eventually. I just drink straight from the 1gal jugs.

    I have lots of wines planned for this summer from the local wild fruits and from my garden. Hopefully some meads too if I can source 6gal buckets of honey within my province and a homesteader willing to ship them.

    I have only brewed a 2gal batch of beer. ''Twas a Mr. Beer Canadian Blonde Ale kit from Canadian Tire. It was fairly easy to do, but I'd like to try the more advanced beer brewing.

    I'm not sure what I need for equipment though?

    Look at some of the online forums on BIAB - Brew in a Bag. Its the easiest way to get started with the minimal of equipment. As you brew a few batches and understand the process, you will consistently make better beers. Add to your equipment as needed , temperature control during the mash and fermentation cycle is critical to make consistent beer. Then move up to a mini keg system instead of bottling and a controlled temp storage /conditioning refrigerator, share it with your friends and enjoy.
