    I started making wine just a few weeks ago. I think I may already be getting addicted to this new hobby! I am fascinated by the actual process and have much to learn! So far I have 4 demijons bubbling away - mead, blueberry wine, pineapple wine and lemon wine. I will be doing some raspberry wine and some blackberry wine at the weekend.

    Loving it so far and am keen to learn :)

    Welcome from Essex. There seems to be a lack of brewers in Essex so always good to see new folk.

    Thank you very much for the welcomes which are much appreciated :)

    I am in Ongar.

    I thought I would just make a kit (or two!) But now find myself fascinated with the process :) Am really enjoying it so far.

    Quite possibly but I like sour stuff and it will be a good learning experience (hopefully)!!!

    Hi I'm in Billericay. On the lemon wine, I made one a couple of years ago, it was very dry and the sharpness of the lemons was a little too much. Still drank it though.
