Natural cork, synthetic cork, or screwcap?

Who cares? Just pour the damn wine already! It tastes great with all three kinds of closures.

    Hey Joe,
    Glad to see you survived the storm. Our house and animals were fortunate to escape unscathed. However, we are still without power…I'm over it.
    Started the SDP on Monday…was sad to see you weren't there….I'm sure you would like to be there and are there in spirit. There's only a couple of folks from our class in there…well….3, now that I think of it. It looks to be pretty tough…but, at the risk of drinking an ungodly amount of wine…I'll suffer through it. :)
    I've been brewing beer…and it's coming out pretty good…I need to get you some.

      Glad to see you made it through, too!

      I was signed up, paid my money, and was all set to go to the classes, but then I saw that they were during the day. There was no way I could manage that with my work schedule. So, it looks like I will be switching to the Court of the Master Sommelier. I will retake the test we already finished in Tuscon next December.

      What style of beer are you making? I can't wait to taste it. Are you still at Cova?

        Yeah…still at Cova…I'm here 4 or 5 nights a week
        I may be cutting back some hours due to school…(and the SDP).
        I currently have a batch of a 'Catcher in the Rye' made with rye instead of barley (pretty tasty stuff…kind of like a heavy Sam Adams) and an IPA that I'm really happy with…not OVERY hoppy…but great mouth feel, it's only 2 weeks old…I want to see how it develops.
        Let's get together and drink some brews…do the Pats play the Lions?
        I think the Lions could probably take them at this point…(and that's no disrespect to the Lions…)

          Sounds good. No Pats/Lions suck-fest, mercifully, though.

          Are you working any weekends?
