Oaking provides a way to develop a wine that is quite complex. The depth of the complexity is greatly determined by the type of oak that is used as well as the wine itself. Oak can provide a wide variety of flavors to wine including coconut, vanilla and even spices such as cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon. In some cases, oak can even add a somewhat earthy tone. The type of flavor that is added to your wine is largely determined by the type of oak that is used. For example, American oak when used with white wines such as Merlot tends to add an aroma that is decidedly vanilla in nature. Generally, most of the oak that is used for flavoring in wine is either American or French. Hungarian and Yugoslavian oaks are also now being increasingly used as well; however.

In the past, wine was oaked by placing it into an oak barrel. The wine would then stay in the barrel until it reached the aroma and taste that was desired. There were few ways in which to control the process other than by choosing the type of oak as well as the size and age of the barrel. A vintner could also decide whether they wanted to use a toasted or charred barrel or not. This process typically took quite a long time. Older barrels tended to take even longer.

Today, the method of oaking wine has shifted from using just oak barrels to use oak pieces. This has made it much easier and more affordable for home vintners to oak their wines. Today, winemakers can choose to use oak chips as well as oak beans and oak powder for the purpose of oaking their wines without the concern and expense of having to use large barrels.

You will need to give some thought to which method you think will best suit your purpose; however. There are advantages as well as disadvantages to each. For example, oak chips are commonly preferred because they are easily available and can be obtained in a variety of different types. The problem with oak chips is that once you have put them into your carboy, you have to find a way to get them out. Oak powder works quite well during the fermentation process and you do not need a lot of oak powder to achieve the results that you want. The flip side to this is that if you are not careful, you can easily over oak your wine. In addition, it can be difficult to rack your wine using oak powder.

When oaking your wine you will need to decide when you wish to add the oak. Generally, the oak is added either during fermentation or after the wine has been racked and you are ready for bulk aging of your wine.

Oak powder really does work best if you decide you want to oak during the fermentation process. Over time the oak powder will absorb wine and eventually it will just sink to the bottom of the container. For a small batch of wine, you should not use any more than 20 grams of oak powder per gallon. You may wish to use less than that. If you decide to oak your wine during bulk aging, oak chips tend to work best. Plan to use somewhere between two and four ounces of chips for every six gallons of wine. Ideally, it is best to make sure that you sanitize your chips before you put them into your wine. You can use Campden Tablets for this purpose. Just soak the chips in some water, add a tablet and allow them to sit for a few minutes.

Finally, remember that as when trying anything new with your wine, it is best to start small with oaking. You can always add more, but it is virtually impossible to take it away once it is there.

Guide to Making your Own Wine Recipe

Guide to Making your Own Wine Recipe

Guide to making your own wine recipe article post is really for all those people that appreciate the wine making process, and want to try it out for themselves at their own space. Eventually after learning the basics of wine making there is space for creative learning, making ones own recipe with intentional goal in mind.

After you have had an opportunity to experiment with making your own wine you may naturally decide that it is time to begin creating your own wine recipes. This is quite common. There are a number of advantages to creating your own recipes. For example, you can avoid the hassle of having to look around for a recipe every time you want to make a batch of wine with the fruit that you have available. In addition, you gain the ability to experiment and possible produce a really original, great batch of wine.

Like any recipe; however, wine recipes must have a specific format and certain ingredients in order to be successful. Let us examine it from the point of view of baking a cake. There are certainly hundreds, if not thousands, of different cake recipes. Line them all up and they are decidedly different. In order for a cake to be a cake; however, the recipe must have several basic ingredients. For example, you are usually going to need some type of flour, sweetener and something to help the cake rise. This is a basic formula that forms the basis of cake recipes. While you may not think of it, it is really a matter of science.

A wine recipe is no different. There are certain ingredients that must be included in any wine recipe in order for the end result to work. These ingredients are: produce, sugars, water, nutrients, acid and yeast.

First, you will need to start with something to make the wine. Most wines are made from grapes but you can use practically any fruit or vegetable matter; even herbs if you wish. You can also use concentrated juices as well. In addition, you will need sugars in order to start and support fermentation. If you do not add sugar to your wine recipe, fermentation will not take place and without that, your wine will not have any alcohol. In most cases, the fruit that you select for your wine will produce the necessary amount of sugar but that is not the case with all produce. For example, if you are making dandelion wine then you will need to provide sugar because the produce will not be able to produce any of its own. You may also find that you need to occasionally add some sugar to support the sugar that is provided.

Water is essential in order to dilute flavors that may be too strong. Common examples of wines which may need to be diluted with water include blackberries, elderberries and gooseberries.

Nutrients are also essential. Keep in mind when creating your wine recipe that the yeast which you will add to your wine is a living organism. As a result, it needs nutrients to thrive and support a healthy fermentation process. Usually, you will need to add some nutrients to your wine. Common examples of nutrients include Yeast Energizer and Yeast Nutrient.

Do not overlook the importance of acid in your wine. While you certainly do not want to have too much acid in your wine, it does play an important role in the fermentation process. If the acid level in your wine is too low then the fermentation will not be as successful as it should be. Acid also assists in the stability of your wine. Also, without sufficient acid, your wine may very well develop bacteria and molds that could ruin your wine. Tannic acid and Acid Blend can be used to help add necessary acid to any wine recipe.

Of course, no wine recipe can be complete without yeast. Yeast is what basically does all of the work of converting the produce you have chosen into wine. Without yeast, there can be no wine. You will need to make sure that you have yeast that is specifically designed for wine making. Do not make the mistake of thinking that you can use the yeast you have in the kitchen for bread making. Even yeast designed for brewing beer will not work for making wine.

Guide to Blending Wine at Home

Guide to Blending Wine at Home

Guide to Blending Wine at Home article post is for the keen home wine makers that want try blending wine at home.

Blending has become a highly respected part of the process of wine making. Many winemakers in fact view blending as a highly evolved art form. The basic idea of blending is to mix different wines in order to create a final wine that possesses a quality that is superior to that of each of the different components singularly.

Guide to blending wine at home basics

The most common type of blending involves blending at least two different grape varieties of wine. Blending has become some a popular concept that many winemakers specifically plant their vineyards for the purpose of blending by growing a variety of different grapes in order to create a blended field. Another way of achieving blending is to combine at least two different varieties of grapes that have been harvested separately but then ferment them together. This process commonly involves at least one red grape and one white grape.

Still yet, you might choose to create a blend which contains the same grape; however, different fermentation containers are used. Because the containers are different they will produce a taste that is somewhat different even though the grapes are essentially the same. You might even choose to go so far as to create a blend containing wine from a batch that has been barrel fermented and another that has been fermented in a stainless steel container.

Guide to blending wine at home with vintage variations

Another way to blend wines is to blend wines that are from different vintages. If you have been making your own wine for some time, there is a good chance that you probably have a few bottles of wine in your cellar that were produced in different years.

It should be pointed out that there are some wines that do not lend themselves particularly well to blending. Chardonnays are known to not be particularly improved by blending. Red Zinfandel and Pinot Noir also rarely see many improvements from blending. There are also some wines which are too delicate for blending such as Gewürztraminer.

When properly handled, blending can help to balance the flavors as well as the levels of tannin’s and acids. It should be pointed out that blending can help to improve the quality of wines that already at least somewhat good on their own. Blending one good wine with a bad wine; however, will not improve the bad wine enough to create a single good blended wine. Typically, rather than the bad wine being improved, the good wine will take on the lesser qualities of the bad wine. If you have a bad wine that you wish to improve, consider mixing; a process that can take away an off flavor.

Guide to blending wine at home duet

Generally, if you are new to blending it is best to start with just two wines. Many home based winemakers discover the benefits of blending when they taste a wine in order to see how it turned out and discover that it could be slightly better. Blending gives you the ability to select the best characteristics of multiple wines and then blend them together to achieve a far better flavor. While the process may seem complicated, even the most novice home winemakers can create a good blend at home.

The basic process of blending involves testing, comparing the flavors and then finding the ratio you prefer for the final blend. Remember that it is best to blend on an incremental basis, starting with small amounts and then making minor adjustments until you find a preferred blend. As you may wish to blend in the future, it is a good idea to take notes as you go along; noting how many millimeters of each wine you have used for subsequent tests.

It is also important to note that in some cases, certain blends may need some time in order for the individual components to marry and achieve a good flavor. This is commonly the case with young red wines. Tasting a blend of young reds right away can give you an inaccurate idea of what the final result will taste like. Whites; however, can usually be blended and tasted right away.

Most winemakers find that blending produces better results when it occurs as soon after fermentation as possible. Blending right after fermentation will protect the final product from oxidation and also gives the wines the opportunity to age together into a single wine rather than separately.

An Introduction to Making Sparkling Wines

An Introduction to Making Sparkling Wines

An introduction to making sparkling wines article post is for anyone that has an interest in the wine making process.

While many people who make their own wine prefer to make wine that is suitable for everyday drinking with meals, there may be times when we you wish to make something more special that would be suitable for special occasions and parties. The obvious choice is sparkling wines. If you have considered making sparkling wines but have been intimidated by the thought because it seemed too complicated, rest assured that it is not nearly as complicated as it might at first seem.

An Introduction to Making Sparkling Wines

An introduction to making Sparkling Wines explained

The term sparkling wine refers to wine that has been carbonated. Many people think of sparkling wine as champagne; however, the word champagne is used to refer to sparkling wine that is produced in the Champagne region of France. In Spain, this version of sparkling wine is known as Cava and in Italy it is known as Prosecco.

Regardless of the different names that are used to refer to sparkling wine, the same age-old process can be used to make sparkling wine at home. The basic process calls for beginning with white wine and adding sugar and yeast to the mixture. The wine is then corked so that carbon dioxide will begin to build up. Since the bottle is corked, the bubbles will then become forced back down into the wine.

The process really is quite simple and there is no reason why you cannot begin producing your own version of sparkling wine at home with a few bottles, some sugar, a lemon and some yeast along with your own white wine. Remember that your bottles will need to be sanitized first. While the bacteria that may grow in bottles that have not been sanitized will not necessarily hurt you, it will definitely affect the taste of your wine and could ruin the entire batch.

The first step in the process is to make your white wine somewhat more acidic. The acidity of the wine will give it a texture that is more flavorful and overall crisper. To do this, add the juice of one lemon per twenty-five ounces of white wine.

The next step is to add in the yeast and the sugar. Both of these items are necessary in order for the carbonation to occur. You must make sure that your measurements are exact; however, when you add the sugar into the wine. If you use too much sugar the result will be too much carbonation. This can actually cause the bottles to explode so you want to make sure you use only one teaspoon of sugar per twenty-five ounces of wine.

After you have added the sugar into the wine, you will then need to add in the yeast. You will only need to add ¼ teaspoon yeast into the wine and sugar mixture. Make sure that you sprinkle the yeast carefully into the wine; do not just dump it into the wine. Now, using a large spoon, stir the mixture to be sure the sugar and yeast become well combined. You may even note that the carbonation process has already begun to occur.

Now, it is time to bottle the mixture. To achieve successful results, the mixture must be properly bottled. The biggest mistake in making sparkling wines is to pour the mixture into a bottle and stick in a cork. Many home brewers prefer to use what is known as swing cap bottles that contain a metal rod attached to the cork. Once the cork has been inserted into the bottle, the rod can be locked into place. This works to pressurize the contents inside the bottle. You can purchase these types of bottles at most home brew stores as well as online.

When you pour the wine, be sure to leave about two inches of space in the neck of the bottle. This will allow plenty of room for the pressure to build as the carbonation process occurs. If you do not leave enough space, the pressure will have nowhere to go and you could end up with exploding bottles. Once the bottles have been filled, they should be placed in a location that is cool and dry. Generally, they should remain there for between one and two weeks. When you are ready to drink the wine, do make sure that you chill it first.

A Step by Step Guide of Wine Making

A Step by Step Guide of Wine Making

A step by step guide of Wine Making is an introduction to the wine making process for beginners.

If you are a true wine connoisseur, the next step in appreciating a fine wine may be to make your own wine at home. While the process may seem to be complicated, wine can be made rather easily at home. Before beginning the process of making your own wine at home it is important to understand the basic steps of wine making.

A Step by Step Guide of Wine Making

A step by step guide of Wine Making at home

In order to make wine at home you will need either grape concentrate or grapes. If you have a sufficient growing area, you may choose to grow your own grapes and make wine from that. If you choose to use grape concentrate, keep in mind that you will need to use high quality grape concentrate. This can be purchased online as well as in wine and home brewing stores. In addition, you will need yeast and brewing equipment. If this is your first batch of wine you may wish to consider purchasing a wine kit rather than buying all of your equipment separately. After you have had a chance to experiment with making wine at home and decided whether it is an endeavor you wish to continue you might then begin accumulating various pieces of equipment for brewing larger batches of wine.

A Step by Step Guide of Wine Making explained

There are five to eight basic steps involved in the process of making wine, depending on whether you are using grapes or concentrate. If you are using grapes then the fruit will obviously need to be harvested first. After the grapes have been harvested, you will then need to remove the stems from the grapes. This is an absolutely essential step as very bitter tannin’s are contained in the stems that can have a heavy influence on the wine.

Crushing of the grapes

After the stems have been removed, the skins of the grapes will then need to be broken in order to release the juice from the fruit. There are certainly many different ways in which to do this. Crushing is the preferred method for most winemakers. The degree to which the fruit is crushed will have an impact on the resulting wine. If your goal is to create a wine that has a fruity aroma then you may wish to leave the berries almost completely intact.


The next step is known as the primary fermentation. During this step the yeast cells contained in the wine will feed on the sugars. Alcohol and carbon dioxide is produced as a result. In some cases, you may wish to add additional yeast. This helps to ensure a stable and consistent conversion which may not be the case if you rely solely on the yeast that is found on the fruit itself.


After the primary fermentation, more juice will need to be extracted from the fruit. It should be noted that the juice that is extracted in this step is typically not as high of a quality as the juice that is extracted during the crushing phase. This is because the juice that is obtained during crushing, known as free run juice, has had less contact with the stems and skins. This does not mean that press juice is useless; however. Even large wineries may choose to use press juice in order to increase their yield.

Secondary fermentation

A secondary fermentation occurs after the pressing, at the same time as the wine is aging. As the winemaker, it will be up to you to determine how long the wine should ferment.


Blending is an optional part of the process; however, one which can assist you in creating a highly customized wine. Blending is most commonly used in order to improve two or more batches which may be slightly lacking.


The last step of the process is bottling. The wine is poured into bottles and at times you may wish to add sulfates in order to help end fermentation as well as to preserve the wine. Finally, the bottle of wine is sealed with a cork.

Making wine at home can be a very enjoyable experience. As you learn more about the process of making wine, you will likely gain a more thorough appreciation of wine.

Colon Cleanse versus Body Detox

Colon Cleanse versus Body Detox

Colon cleanse versus body detox are both useful, you can imagine what the digestive system puts up with variety of foods being sent down the hatch several times per day, every day, seven days per week, and with some people they keep it up for decades.  Where is the well deserved break for the digestive system? Considering that not all foods are equal, such foods as fruit and vegetables contain lot of fiber and are much more of a loose structure than the pastry of a half a dozen pies, therefore it is wise to consider what foods are healthy to eat and in what quantities.

Colon cleanse versus body detox

Colon cleanse versus body detox  explained

You may have heard that the human body can store up to 20 pounds of excess waste and toxins. Although most individuals do not have this much stored, even 5 pounds can be too much. That is why you may be interested in ridding these toxins from your body, but how do you? You will find two main options listed online, a colon cleanse and a body detox.

For the most part, you will find many similarities between a colon cleanse and a body detox. You will also see some differences. For example, both are designed to eliminate toxins from your body. The approach taken is different. With a body cleanse your whole body is targeted, including your colon. With a colon cleanse, only the colon is targeted.

Colon cleanse versus body detox to cleanse the temple

So, which approach is right for you? It depends. First, it is important to look at results. Do you want to remove any of the above mentioned extra waste which may be causing you to carry around excess pounds? If so, a colon cleanse is your best option. This specifically targets the excess weight and poundage in your track.

Although many people are horrified to hear that they may have a lot of waste built-up in their bodies, that is not the only reason for a cleanse or detox. Detoxification has a number of benefits, including an improvement in skincare, increased energy, and an overall feeling of well being. If this is your goal, a whole body detox is your best option.

Colon cleanse versus body detox options

How you intend to detox or cleanse can also determine if a whole body cleanse or colon cleanse is right for you. With colon cleanses, you have a number of different options, including a saltwater flush. Even with this cheap option, many prefer to purchase over-the-counter products, which may include pills or drink mixes. In most instances, these products do work, but you may find them to be costly. A drink mix, which tends to work faster than pills, can cost up to $50 for one serving!

In keeping with costs, you may find a whole body detox to be a more affordable option. This is due to your options. Although over-the-counter products are available for sale, many turn to water fasting, juice fasting, and the Master Cleanse. Out of the three, the Master Cleanse will be the most expensive, as you need to purchase cayenne pepper, grade b maple syrup, natural salt, and fresh lemons. Not only do body detoxes tend to be cheaper, but remember that they target the whole body, including the colon.

Colon cleanse versus body detox for fast results

As previously stated, colon cleanses tend to work faster than whole body detoxes. This is because you are targeting a specific area of your body. As nice as this sounds, you need to take your daily routine into consideration. A colon cleanse in a drink format should produce results in 1 hour or less. At this point in time, you will find yourself running to the bathroom. For that reason, a colon cleanse is recommended for at-home use only. Pills tend to work over a period of 7 to 30 days. Throughout that time, you will notice a pattern in your bathroom habits, making it easy to go about your daily routine.

So, should you undergo a colon cleanse or a whole body detox? The choice is yours to make. However, if you have the time to devote to a body detox and have the ability to forego solid foods, you may experience the best results.

Body detoxes and their benefits
Natural environment

Are you considering a body detox? If so, you may have heard that there are a number of health benefits to undergoing one, but is this true? Yes and no. In all honesty, it depends on who you ask.

Body detoxes and their benefits explained

Before further discussing whether a body detox does have benefits, it is important to familiarize yourself with the detox process. There are a number of ways for you to detoxify your body. Three popular approaches include the Master Cleanse, water fasting, and juice fasting. Water fasting and juice fasting involves only consuming water and juice respectively. On the Mater Cleanse, you mix a drink with about 8 ounces of water, 1/10 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon of grade b maple syrup. The cleanse also includes a nightly senna tea and a morning salt-water flush.

Body detoxes and their benefits to get started

When on the Master Cleanse, a water fast, or a juice fast, solids are eliminated from your diet. Many healthcare professional state this is very risky. Most of the risk assumed is associated with water fasting. When fasting, your body receives no nutrients. On a juice fast or the Master Cleanse, your body will not receive all needed nutrients, but some. For that reason, many professional state that if you are going to cleanse, use either the Master Cleanse or juice fasting.

Although there is some concern about the lack of nutrients while on a detox fast or cleanse, there are benefits. One benefit is weight loss. When you do not eat solid foods, your calorie intake decreases drastically. This will result in automatic weight loss, even without exercise. Medical professional advise against fasting for the sole purpose of losing weight, but it can be a benefit to undergoing detox.

The greatest benefit of a body detox is that it does what it is supposed to do. That is eliminating stored toxins and waste from your body. These toxins enter our body through water, food, and the environment. Although a small buildup is not uncommon, a large one can hurt your body. When these toxins are expelled through bowel movements, urination, and sweat, you will notice a significant improvement in your health. Many report an increase in energy, regularity, as well as better skin.

Body detoxes and their benefits and the Master Cleanse

As previously stated, the Master Cleanse, water fasting, and juice fasting are three common and popular ways to detox. Unfortunately, some find it difficult to go a week without solid foods. If you are one of those individuals, you can detox in other ways. Although not as full-proof, switching to organic foods, exercising, getting a full body wrap at a spa, or 5-day visits to the sauna can help your body expel toxins.

Since there are benefits to detoxifying the body, you may wish to get started right away. Before doing so, review each of your detox options and find the approach that works best for you. Also, decide on a plan of action for after your detox. At the conclusion of your cleanse, you will have a cleaner and healthier body. You can keep it that way by switching to organic foods, maintaining a healthy diet, and by exercising.
Although the above mentioned claims are widely disputed in the medical field, there are many men and women who will tell you to try a cleanse or body detox. These individuals have seen success. While each body varies, you will likely see those same results. As a reminder, those results include weight loss, increased energy, an improvement in the skin’s appearance, and an overall feeling of healthiness.

Any signs of progress should be celebrated no matter how small they are; of course, large signs of progress should have a larger celebration though in order to be truly successful.

One mistake that many smokers make is trying to pick out a single approach to quit smoking.

Putting down the cigarettes for life in the name of Vitality and Health

In the beginning, you will discover that you are probably afraid of quitting. While you know that it is the smart thing to do for your health it is a habit that has come to be a huge comfort to you. Quitting is so terrifying that you even start to work yourself up over it. Convincing yourself that you cannot really do it, and you should just not even attempt since you know you will fail.

Your first step should be picking out a specific date that you want to start smoking. This can be any date that you please, but unlike that fad diet you keep meaning to try out, this date should actually come. Once the date arrives, you need to ensure that all of your friends and family are behind you for support. This will help you to keep your willpower up whenever you feel that you are going to completely lose control. As a great step in the right direction, you could even avoid buying new cigarettes if you are out, or destroy any that you currently have in your possession.

As a hint, if the cigarettes are in the cabinet in the kitchen or the living room but not physically on you, then yes they do still count as being in your possession. You need to remove everything smoking related from your home. This includes matches, lighters, ashtrays, and all cigarettes. Wash everything in your house if you can, especially bed sheets, and drapes. Anything that smells like smoke should be cleaned. This will clear your home and get it smelling fresh and clean. This great new smell can go a long way towards warding off cigarettes since you will not want to smoking in the clean house and ruin the fresh smell.

Putting down the cigarettes for life and renew your mind with the dynamics of a natural life that is so abundant outdoors

Create a reward system for yourself. A good place to start would be a tiny reward after your first 24 hours with no cigarettes. Then move onto 2 days, then 3 days, then a week, two weeks, a month, two months and so forth. These small rewards will help you to stay motivated as the going gets tough and your willpower starts to diminish. If you give into the temptation, you lose out on your reward and this should be painful in order to be effective. If you are a huge sports fan, you might buy yourself season tickets for your favorite team. Every time you meet a goal, you go to a game, which can encourage you to stay on track so you can use those great tickets.

Putting down the cigarettes for life with a new mindset

Writing down your goals is another great way to rid yourself of cigarettes. There is something about writing down goals that just makes them more important. If you are just walking around with your goals and rewards in your head it is easy to change the rules as you go along. If they are written down, it is a lot easier for someone in your family to help hold you accountable. In addition, this can make it seem much more reasonable to actually quit. Talking about quitting can sound really scary, seeing it written down on paper can remind you just how simple the process really is.

Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!
