Some years ago Cynthia, my wife, decided I needed a hobby so she and the boys bought me a home made wine starter kit. This had the desired effect and now I have bottles of hooch stored all over the house and in the shed. It's a very therapeutic pastime. First of all there's the fruit picking out in the countryside and then, when the yeast starts to work on the sugar, you get a very relaxing bloop, bloop, bloop coming through the airlock of the demijohn. Finally, of course, you have to drink it all. Hic!
