Bad Wine.......Good Degreaser

Even though I seldom drink anymore I do occasionally drink a glass of wine and tend to buy the 4-packs to keep the spoilage to a minimum.

Recently I bought something called 'Lindemans Bin 40 Merlot'. It is imported from Australia and I have to wonder if they didn't confuse the wine with the crap in the bilges of the ships that brought it over and bottle that.

This stuff is bad enough to gag a maggot!!!

I had thought about trying to clean my chain with it but I'm afraid it would corrode the chain.

Anymore experiences from all you alcoholics with bad wine?

True alcoholics don't really care about the quality of their wine. They're more concerned with the volume.

My wife used to take any spoiled wine that we had to work. She'd use it as bait for fruit fly traps. Fruit flys aren't too discerning.

By the way, what's a 4 pack of wine look like?

At least it doesn't come in bags/boxes as the cheap wine here does. Thankfully, I've never sampled the stuff so don't know how badly it will rot your esophagus, liver, and other organs it comes into contact with.

Four Packs can be found in most grocery stores and are just four single servings. I usually get mine at Publix.

Maybe we just get marginal wine here in South Carolina.

I left a shot of Maker's Mark bourbon on my kitchen counter before going on a trip on accident. I came back and found a dozen drowned fruit flies in it. Been using that method ever since.
