Did it work? My dad has some success, some batches are better than others, he does it in 2.5 or 5 or so gal runs. I got him the little 2.5 gal tank and that got him back into the hobby, he uses it for experimental runs and the bucket setup for the larger runs that he is more sure of.

Yeah, for the most part it worked.

I had another friend who made her own wine. It turned out bad because she let it sit too long and ended up with red wine vinegar.

I prefer red wine vinegar to wine myself, don't really like wine, though I have a friend who was taking that as a challenge to find one I like.

I generally go with the red wine vinegar, my grandma introed me to it, she put it and some oil on fresh garden tomatoes, I almost died it was so good! I can't replicate it either, she is the only one that can make it that way, wish she still could!

Eww, we never got rats because of them! I like store tomatoes but nothing beats a home grown, they should have two different names they are so different!
