So – you’ve decided that you would like to have a go at making some wine. Why? Since the beginning, home winemakers just can’t wait to taste what they’ve made. So you’ll find you then try a bottle or 2 or 3, and the batch completed. You attempt a few bottles and will wait. You can do a dispenser at a milk jug if you want to do something fast and simple. With 5 gallons – you just could be lured to let a couple of the remaining bottles age. The difference in taste is, to put it AMAZING. The next thing is to select which type of juice you’d like to ferment.
Muscadine, cranberry juice, grape juice, and cherry are good options. The first 3 must produce a reasonably regular tasting wine while cherries generally will provide you a sweeter wine. You may add sugar to sweeten your wine once it has stopped fermenting and’s stabilized. You may want to pay your bucket with a fabric towel or place on a lid using an airlock in place.
