The wine is done! I bottled it last night (after waiting for it to ferment for MONTHS when I thought it would take days) and had my first experience with a hand-corker. If anyone needs anything corked, let me know. That thing is super fun.
And the wine itself is...drinkable! It's not the best tasting wine in the world, and not sure I taste any blackberry in there, but hey, I up and made some wine.
Challenge no. 9 is history. Cheers!
