It's true - the first few times I made my own wine - it tasted... uhhh... Bad.
I drank it anyway.
I wasn't a wine lover or connessuer or anything like that. I had just read that it was pretty easy to do and you didn't need much equipment and it was cheap.
Well - all of that is true.
The problem is that I wanted it to taste good. Actually - I wanted it to taste great.
But - it didn't.
So I did a little research and found out 2 "secrets", if you will, that increased that quality of the flavor almost instantly.
The next batch I made, even my wife drank some and said it was "OK". Now I was getting somewhere.
A few more batches and a few more little tweaks and changes and guess what? She didn't know it was mine! She thought I bought it. Pretty cool huh?
Now - believe me - this didn't happen over a few weeks or months. It actually took 3 and a half years. BUT - I did it.
I knew how to take store bought ingredients and turn them into a wine that tasted as good as or better than what you buy at the store or the wine shop.
So - what are those 2 secrets and what are the few tweaks? I'll get to that in my next post so stay tuned. In the mean time - you can get my basic "How to make Your Own Wine" book free at this link: http://www.how-to-make-wine.net/free_book.html
