Wine Recipes

Apple Wine
Yields one gallon

1 gallon Fresh Apple Cider
1 tsp. Yeast Nutrient
1 pound Sugar
1 crushed Campden Tablet
1.5 tsp. Acid Blend
1 package Wine Yeast
.5 tsp. Pectic Enzyme
.25 tsp. Grape Tannin

Put juice into a primary fermenter bucket and immediately add the crushed campden tablet, all other ingredients except yeast, and stir well.

Cover loosely, and wait 24 hours. Add yeast, and stir daily. After 4-5 days, crush another campden tablet, place in glass secondary, and siphon into glass and put airlock and stopper on top.

In 3 weeks, siphon off of sediment into clean glass jug, along with 1/2 campden tablet, and re-attach airlock and stopper. Siphon along with 1/2 campden every 30 days for at least 2 more times, and again if still sediment. To sweeten slightly, add 1/2 tsp stabilizer, then 1/2 cup dissolved sugar per gallon. Wait 2-3 days, then bottle and cork.

Strawberry Wine
4 – 4 1/2 lbs. Strawberries
1 Gallon Water
2 lbs. Sugar
1 tsp. Acid Blend (Do Acid Test)
1/8 tsp. Tannin
1/2 tsp. Peptic Enzyme
1 tsp. Yeast Nutrient
1 Campden Tablet
1 pack Cote’s de Blanc Yeast

Wash and remove the stems and leaves. Use a straining bag and fill with the strawberries. Tie the top, commence to crushing and mashing. Leave straining bag in the bucket. Add water, sugar, acid blend (do test), tannin, peptic, enzyme, and yeast nutrient. Stir well. Before you add the yeast, you will need to sterilize the must. Crush up one campden tablet and add to the must. Stir and cover for 24 hours. Now you may add the yeast. Stir well, cover, and stir every day for 4-5 days. Then siphon into your 1 gallon jug, put rubber stopper on and airlock. Siphon every 2 weeks and add 1 crushed campden tablet every time you rack. It will take about 2-3 months before your wine is clear enough to bottle. You can make more than just 1 gallon if you just multiply out the recipe to hewever many gallons you want to make. I pack of yeast will work well for 5-7 gallons.
