When working with fresh fruit wine recipes, most recipes you will find have measurements relative to making 1 gallon of wine.
If you are just starting out, you may want to try these fruit wine kits. They are very simple...Just add water!
So if you are making 5 gallons, please be sure to multiple all ingredients by 5.
But what a wonderful way to use all the fresh fruits that are in season!
Sanitize all equipment. Refer to wine making instructions if you are not sure what to do.
Fruit preparation is important. Purchase fruit that is RIPE (good and juicy), not rotten and not under-ripe. The idea behind this is that the fruit has as much natural sugar as possible. Previously frozen fruits work wonderfully. They produce more juice.
You will be hanging the nylon straining bag on the side of the primary fermenter during fermentation. When you put together your must, you need to mash and squeeze the fruit to get the juice out.
As the must ferments, the pulp will break down. Mash the fruit after you take a hydrometer reading. Dont kill it just mash it a little to extract a little more juice out of the fruit.
Your wine will now start clearing. At this point, you can add clearing agents or let the wine clear naturally. I highly encourage to let it clear naturally since the longer it sets and ages, the better it gets. This process encourages the development of esters and the taste of your wine will mellow and develop better body.
You have completed your first fruit wine recipe. In a few months, proceed to bottling your wine.
