If you don't drink and find yourself with an abundance of wine, then I'm sure that when random friends hear of your predicament they will start appearing at your place to help you out! Although cooking wine is nice too. Soon enough, I will get around to posting all the details in my setup, as promised in my signature, with recipes for red, white, etc. I'll let you know when that happens Cobra.

Drake, that's freakin' amazing! My mind is blown! I'll be happy if I can just manage to keep a few plants alive!
