    OK, so this is part 2 really. I had a post yesterday about whether it's OK to freeze grapes because I won’t be able to do anything with them until the weekend. So thanks for the advice I got.

    Today I collected the grapes from a friend ready to be made in to wine. The thing is, I was expecting a bag full. I got a big crate of the things.

    Thing is, I've never really done this before. How do I go about crushing so many grapes and extracting the juice, without spending a fortune on equipment

    If you have a big crate of grapes, and you can find him, there is someone who can help.

    LOL..i did consider pre-empting all the Stu Francis jokes. There's no way I'm going to get a sensible answer now.

    trug and mash with a sledgehammer or similar blunt instrument, looks like you have enough for about half dozen bottles

    Joking aside, I have got a fridge-freezer full of bloody grapes. 😆

    after seeing those yeti feet I'm thinking a garlic crusher might work if your not in a hurry
