Curry Wine - One Gallon/Six Bottles

Yep! a curry wine, it's spicy and fragrant and well daft.

You might not manage more than half a glass at a time, it sort of sneaks up on you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients To make one gallon

A litre Mango Juice (Pineapple or Orange will do if you can't get mango!)

10 Cardamon pods

1 Teaspoon of coriander seeds

1 kg of sugar

1tsp pectolase

Yeast nutrient

Half cup cold tea

1/2  teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Yeast -high alcohol is best , we used Gervin no 6

 

Method,

Pour the sugar into a demijohn and add the Mango juice and everything but the Tabasco sauce.

Top up to about 6" below the top of the demi john with  cold water and leave in a warm place.

Just shake it gently until the  sugar dissolves, it takes a few hours.

It froths like mad so watch it doesn't spill all over anything important!

Add an airlock and leave  to ferment at about 23c until all bubbles stop, ours took about 6 weeks...

Check with hydrometer and it should be about 1.005 or below or just taste it, if it doesn;t taste too sweet move on to the next stage

Add 1/2 tsp of Tabasco sauce, or more if you want it hotter ...Shake well

Leave for three days then add a campden tablet and potassium sorbate.

Leave until clear-- about two weeks

You may need to add finings to clear it, give it a couple of weeks and if it doesn't clear add the finings.
