Wine From Grapes
Grape Wine!
Use only the ripe undamaged grapes, bad grapes make bad wine.
Crush them, either get your shoes off or use a masher or squash them by hand. Or,we have pulpers for sale, see cider above. When every grape is squashed add a yeast-a Gervin Yeast is best. Leave in the bucket for about 2 days then press the grapes
to get the juice out--you'll need a lot of muscle or a press off us(between 60 to 300 pounds depending on size or you'll have to make one. We do hire a small press for £5.00 a week, £50.00 deposit.
When you've pressed all the grapes, put them into a fermenter with an airlock to ferment out.
You'll probably need to add 8oz of sugar a gallon for most grapes grown in England, add this to the container after pressing.
About 7kg of grapes will produce a gallon of juice.
When the wine stops fermenting add campden tablets and stabiliser. You might need to sweeten the wine a bit as it can go incredibly dry(sour). Remember---only ripe uindamaged grapes!!! No mouldy ones!! Have fun...
