New batch

My most recent batch is Pine Apple. Not pineapple, as many would assume, pine apple. I used pineneedles and apple juice as a base. I have not pitched the yeast yet, still waiting to finish off adding everything.

I think I will aim for 11% on this wine. It will be on the dry side, where I am now adjusting my taste buds to from where I was when I started winemaking. The color is quite light, I can imagine that it will be lighter in color after fermentaion. Maybe a light hint of green, probably not though.

I think I will do Lavlin D-47, should come out with good aroma. I may sweeten one bottle a little for the people who like it sweet, and to see how it taste sweet compared to dry.
