The Press

After the Brix hit  0 when we tested on Friday afternoon, the cap had sunk down by Friday night, so we knew we were ready.  I would have to say of all the investments in winemaking equipment, the basket press is certainly worth the money.  You can get a decent one for $200-$250, and it is a lifetime investment if you take care of it.  Many of them get passed on from generation to generation.

Here is a pic of the pomace cake when we finished the first batch:
