Welcome to The Pauley Principle!

The Pauli Principle, named for Wolfgang Pauli, deals with atoms and electron-sharing that results in new, stronger bonds. Think 2 parts hydrogen and 1 part oxygen, a shared delectable (!) electron and VOILA! Water!

Similarly, when you prepare whole food to share with family and friends, especially foods you've grown, something amazing happens. Meals become tastier and healthier. Your soul, not just your stomach, becomes fulfilled. You live life more abundantly as a result. During a shared meal, the bonds that people create grow stronger and become something new: GREATER than the sum of the parts! I give you The Pauley Principle.

Concerned about Home Wine Making Regulations?

 Basic wine making supplies are pretty simple, but probably not what you have just sitting around the house. An excellent tutorial for wine making can found found at the link below.

An easy way to start out is to use a winemaking pulp if you start your wine out of season.
assorted chemicals, stoppers, airlocks, yeasts


I wrapped my boxer shorts around the  two carboys that are holding  my wine to keep it from losing its color from the wine cellar's window. Note the airlocks. They bubble away when gas escapes during fermentation.
If you also enjoy a glass of wine occasionally, the hobby of making wine might be something you are considering.

Basically, as long as you're NOT planning to sell your wine, but you are an adult and you want to adhere to basic guidelines, there's no need for concern. It's easy to comply with the law.  Once you begin home wine making, you'll probably want to continue and give yourself a variety of tastes and types of wines to go with your meals. Since most recipes are designed for 3 to 5 gallons of wine, going over the lawful limit of wine making should not be a big problem.

Let me know your experiences!
