I recently purchased everything I will need to make blackberry wine (challenge no. 9). I'm waiting until July to go blackberry picking, when they are fully ripe. There are quite a few pick-your-own farms within reasonable driving distance of NYC. After I acquire my berries, it's about a 17-day process. Let's hope my winemaking skills aren't as bad as my art skills.
Great brewing shop in Gowanus.
Equipment: Bucket, glass jug, tubing for siphoning, siphon starter, hand corker, sanitizer, red wine yeast, and airlock.
