Processing Concord Grapes

Back in late August 2013, my family and I harvested enough Concord grapes to fit in 2 five gallon buckets. Once the grapes were picked I soaked them water for several hours so the bugs would float off of them. This year's crop was pretty good with hardly any insects and I don't use pesticides on the crop.
My intention was to produce grape juice so we separated the edible grapes from their stems.

After sorting we ended up with 4 containers of grapes to turn into juice.
Below are pictures of some of the grapes that were picked.
