Subject: The Fermentation Process: Punching the Must

Mark opens the vat...

and "punches" the must.

Then Tim has a turn

and gas-laden foam is released.

Mark takes a sample to check the alcohol level,

while Cindy checks the temperature.


and Mark takes a reading.

Voila! Grape juice has become wine!
