Although a valient effort, how far do you take that?

I've read some period styles of mashing grain and what not, that I know
my lady wouldn't let me get away with, let alone would I want to put up
with the smell that long.

This is what I'm doing. I have a wine that was starte only about 8
months ago. It is just bottled a week ago. My reason for entering it is
that it is my first attempt at a wine, and I did a side-by-side
experiment with a pyment at the same time.

Finding all the documentation for things I'd like to make sure to
mention was more difficult that I thought at first.

When was glass bottles with corks first used for wines? This has sent me
running all over the 'net and through different reference areas to
figure out. I *think* I have the answer for my documentation now.

I'm glad to hear that! I truly hope that I've set it up to be
informative as well as productive for us all.
