Re: reading brix in your grapes.  Check your refractometer occasionally for calibration.  Pour a drop of distilled water on the lens, hold it up to the sun and it should read zero.  If not, turn the dial (screw) on top until it reads zero. I’ve had mine for 6 years and never knew I had to calibrate it until recently (thank you Don Kohurst!).  I was reading six instead of zero.   All of my grape readings were thru the roof!  I feel better now that things are where they should be now.  Oops!

    oh my! 🙂

    just finished the 2007 cab on fire (yum!) and now working through a 2008 merlot (yum, again!).

    thanks for the great wine!
