Rhubarb Win -  The easy way -Dry white



To Make 6 Bottles - One Gallon

2kg Rhubarb
1.2kg Sugar
1 tsp Yeast Nutrient
1 tsp Acid Blend or citric acid
Gervin N0 3 or all purpose yeast.
Chop the rhubarb into chunks and put into a bucket.
Pour the sugar over the top of the rhubarb and leave for 48 hours.
All the juice will drop out of the rhubarb, you may have to stir it a couple of times.
Strain the juice into a demijohn, top up to about seven pints with cold water add the rest of the ingredients and leave in a warm place to ferment out.
After a few days when the vigorous frothing subsides, top up to the shoulders of the demi john with cold water.
After about two weeks all the bubbling will have stopped, syphon into a clean demi john and add:
one campden tablet and 1 potassium sorbate tablet.
 I usually add Kwik Cleer  finings at this point.
It's better to taste the wine before you add the campden tablet, if it's too sweet leave it a bit longer, if it's too dry{sour} you can always sweeten it later.
Drink when clear!
