Believe it or not, wine is a healthy drink for the body. English men even make wine from vegetables. It is no wonder that people are making mini-bars in their kitchens and master rooms. If you want to always have these relaxing and healthy beverages in your hands, this guide will make winemaking easy.
Step 1: Getting the Best of Your Fruit
When you have the fruit for your wine, always extract the sweet juice first as this is the best part. Cut the fruits crisply, bust their skins, and chop them. Make sure to remove large pits.
Step 2: Producing Alcohol
Producing alcohol or fermenting is done by stirring some ingredients in a fermenter. You would have to gather the pulp and submerge the bag. Make the batch 5 gallons by adding water. Then put in 5 Camden tablets.
Step 3: Resting in the Fermenter
Fermenting is a day long process. You must use a clean towel to cover the fermenter for 24 hours.
Step 4: Adding in Yeast
Add the wine yeast by sprinkling over the juice’s surface. Cover the substance again with a clean towel. Ferment for at least a week. Put in your calendar: Wine Step 5 as a reminder
Step 5: Take Out the Pulp
Once a week has passed, you have to take out the pulp for total discarding.
Step 6: Leaving it to Ferment
Attach a wine airlock to the fermenter. Get water and pour it in about halfway. Leave the juice to ferment for 6 weeks. Do not forget to put a reminder in your calendar.
Step 7: Getting a Bottle!
By now, the wine should be clear. It is time to again, siphon it off the sediment. Crush 5 more Campden tablets and stir. Now you are allowed to put it in a bottle.
