Fight those winter blues by learning how to make your own wine!


Do you fancy yourself a DYI master? Take your love of home made goods to the next level and learn how to make your own fermented beverages! John Kriz will be teaching a workshop at the Winter Conference on March 1st all about home fermentation! 



Learn the basics of making wine, mead and hard cider -- including the use of fruit other than grapes. Topics include: preparing and crushing fruit, 'recipes', equipment and bottling. The emphasis is on practical knowledge. No experience needed!
