I got a great deal on some strawberries today.
I sliced them up and into the dehydrator they went.
Not enough to make wine with. Going to have to bottle the wines I have bulk aging soon. That means a lot of cleaning and de-labeling of bottles. I will need those empty carboys come harvest time. Very excited for harvest this year as I have some friends that are getting into the hobby.


  1. I love it when friends get into the hobby. And you should try to get hold of some more strawberries - strawberry wine is delicious. You need 4 lbs per English Gallon (which is 8 pints, and each English pint is 20 fluid ounces - I know they do it differently in the States).

  2. If you do get ahold of more berries and decide that you want to freeze them for winter eating, let me know - I've got some great articles and supplies...having canning equipment, will travel.
