    Cab. Sauvignon is well worth it. I have run a couple of time now - properly yummy. This year with high sugars I am expecting good things.

    Thanks Daniel and Gaz

    On yeast - see here: http://www.winesathome.co.uk/forum/s...st-for-Newbies

    And also here: https://winemakermag.com/yeast-strains-chart

    I will probably use RC212 on Cab Sauvignon unless I can get BM4x4

    I have added the Grape Order with pricing now to the original post.

    I'll place the order on Tuesday lunchtime so we can get the varieties. If there are any changes please let me know before then.

    In past years there has been some toing and froing on the day if the grapes are mouldy or in bad shape etc so if even 2nd choices aren't available then i'll get the next closest in style. If there is a price change as a result of 2nd choice then we can sort that on Friday. I'll PM you all my bank details next week so you can transfer monies to me.

    Hope that's OK.

    If you keep the temps right with RC212 you won't (Shouldn't) have nutrient issues.

    If you're gonna mail order anyway, I like BDX for reds (got some from Brian originally - seems to make a good brew).......
