Wine

What's everybody making this year? I have three gallons of grape and gallons of blackberry, peach, pear and pumpkin. This is my first attempt at pear and pumpkin. Already racked the blackberry and peach once and they others will probably be racked for the first time the end of this week.

Re: Wine

5 gallons Black Raspberry/Wine Berry/ Black Berry Mix, 5 gallons peach and 1 gallon of Tomato for now...

If I can get back to the place I seen the 30 pounds of fox grapes last weekend and pick this coming Saturday it will be 3 gallons of Fox Grape and then 5 gallons of Hard Cider when I get 5 gallons of Cider from Strites Orchard!


I've made pumpkin before and if there would have been extra pumpkins this year, I would have made 2 gallons of it...did you add any Pumpkin Pie Spices to your pumpkin when you first started fermenting it?

pchunter, I take it from your 4B listing and your screen name, your in Perry County...

Take a trip down to Lemoyne to Scotzin Brothers http://www.scotzinbros.com/
They will help you get started, they have starter kits for the Beginners and their own Recipe Book (Their Recipe book is good but they use alot of water in their recipes, which can be deleted if you increase the amount of fruits) and also have days where they do work shops to show how to make wine and beer!

Take a trip down there, grab yourself a starter kit and question them, See the old guy Tom that works in there, he is the Wine Expert for the Store and will have your Head Spinning on all he has to offer to help you get started!

Re: Wine

Anyone wanting Apple Cider with no pasterization chemicals added to it to make Hard Cider, Strites Orchard is pressing atleast once a week right now, I just got off the phone with them...get your buckets into them so they can fill them right at pressing time before the add that sodium stuff to perserve it!

I'll be running a 6 gallon ale pail down this evening for them to fill up this week when they press!

Re: Wine

Thanks Woody, Yes I am from Perry County, I have all the stuff to make wine I just need a recipe to try. I just picked around 30lbs of fox grapes over the weekend. They are everywhere this year.

This is Scotzin's recipe to make 2 gallons of Fox Grape Wine...

20 lbs fox grapes
1 gallon water
4 lb sugar
2 campden tablets
2 tsp yeast nutrient
1 tsp pectic enzymes
2 grams wine yeast.

I basically use the 20 pounds and make 2 gallons out of that with just bit of water added to the grapes when I boil them off to juice them to keep them from burning to the bottom of the pot, maybe about 2-4 cups of water and come out with about 2 gallons out of 20 pounds of fox grapes....you can do it either way!
