Each year about this time we make wine with the juice we have produced during the year. In years past we have made Blackberry, Grape, Peach, and Fruit Mixes. I started out several years ago using the Welch's Concentrate Wine recipe on the web. Since then, we have started to use our own fruit juices, but I still basically follow that recipe.
My recipe: (CORRECTED TWICE)
11.5 ounces of grape or blackberry juice
4 - 5 cups of sugar (depending on how strong you want it)
1/2 tsp dry yeast
Add enough water to dissolve sugar and yeast.
Put in Gallon jug and finish filling with water to about 1 inch from the top.
Put a heavy large balloon or surgical glove on fastened at top of jug with a rubber band
Set in warm place for about 6 weeks. When balloon or glove goes down your wine is ready. Wine should be checked each day, because sometimes the balloon bursts or comes off, and you have to get another one on quickly so the wine will make. We usually put our wine in regular size bottles once done. Everyone loves this.
Next weekend is the time we will probably be ready to bottle our wine. Right now we have 11 gallons making ready. After we bottle ours we usually wait a month or longer to drink any. The longer you wait, the better it will be.
