Re: muscat grapes?
Where do you live? I would personally wait till harvest time Septemberish and get them from the source (ie the vineyard). Fortunate thing w/ muscat is that it is very mildew resistant so i can grows in humid wet climates easily. This quality allows for it being planted on the ast coast and the south. If you're in California I could probably get you some.

Re: muscat grapes?
Try a wine supply place in your area although they'll likely be in cases. Whole Foods may have them too and in smaller quantities. You might want to call around first. You might also be able to find them in grocery stores with a customer base that is Southern European or Middle Eastern.

AlB brought an 18 lb case home last week from Corrado's in North Jersey - largely a wine-making supply place with a highly international customer base. Used a mess of 'em for beer and we munched through a ridiculous amount of them over the next few days. Extraordinary grape. Honey, floral (rose), perfumey. We're aiming to get more next week.

BTW - ours were pink muscats from Chile. The shop guy said they're only available a short time.
