  • Make one bowl of grapes
  • Make five barrels of wine (any quality excluding grape juice)
  • Label five barrels of wine with either the QH Co-op label or your own personally customized label.

  • Make one barrel of kalana wine (any quality)
  • Use the "bottler/labeller" to create two bottles of kalana wine from your barrel
  • Use the "bottler/labeller" to label your kalana wine

Have spent a couple of weeks on this, it was a lot of fun to do. Really excited when one barrel turned out Grand Reserve; the others are all Reserve. There really must be something about the Hamlet grapes! :D

Thought I'd better start recording my winemaking progress before I either drink it away or lose my barrels in inventory! For the record; two barrels of Reserve 2016 and a Bowl of Grapes.

Yes, "post as you go" please. You can add the other photos as a reply to your original post so they will all be grouped together.

Nice start! You even got a barrel of reserve on the first try. That's because of the excellent care given to our Hamlet grapes :))
