Hi Paul & Gina,
I have been making wine for many years - but only from inexpensive Costco concentrate kits - turns out amazingly well to my inexperienced taste and only half the price of two buck chuck including corks, labels, and capsules!
About three years ago however I decided to try my hand at "all grain" home brewing and love the great craft beers I can make.
It is a much more demanding process and requires quite a bit more expense in time and equipment if you want to get into kegging - as I do. But as a hobby I really enjoy the more complex process even with its greater potential for failure. No bad batches so far!
I still make wine now and then, but probably no more than one 5 gallon batch a year.
