  • Gather supplies. In addition to the wine ingredients, you'll need a few basic supplies to ensure that your wine can age without being affected by bugs or bacteria. Home winemaking shouldn't be expensive, so it's not necessary to splurge on special equipment. You will need the following supplies: ● A 2-gallon crock or glass jar (you can often find these at vintage or second hand stores, however, be advised that many used crocks may have been used for sauerkraut or pickles and could contaminate your wine. ● A 1-gallon carboy (a glass container with a small neck) ● An airlock ● A thin plastic tube to be used for siphoning ● Clean wine bottles with corks or screw caps ● Campden tablets (optional) Pro Guide discount links: http://bit.ly/1fjDfN2 http://bit.ly/1rihiDk
  • Pick out your fruit. Wine can be made with any type of fruit, though grapes and berries are the most popular choices. Choose fruit at the peak of its flavor. It's best to choose organic fruit that hasn't been treated with chemicals, since you don't want these to end up in your wine. If possible, use fruit you've picked yourself or buy some from a farmer's market. Pro Guide discount links: http://bit.ly/1fjDfN2 http://bit.ly/1rihiDk
  • Pro Guide discount link: Crush the fruit. Using a clean potato masher or your hands, crush and squeeze the fruit to release its juices. Keep doing so until the level of the fruit juice is within 1 1/2 inches of the top of the crock. If you don't have enough fruit and juice to fill the crock almost to the top, top it off with filtered water. Add a Campden tablet, which releases sulphur dioxide into the mixture, killing wild yeast and bacteria.] If you're making wild yeast wine, don't take steps to kill the yeast. ● As an alternative to using a tablet, you can pour 2 cups of boiling water over the fruit. ● Using tap water can affect the taste of your wine, since it contains additives. Be sure to use filtered or spring water. Pro Guide discount links: http://bit.ly/1fjDfN2 http://bit.ly/1rihiDk
  • Stir in the honey. Honey provides food for the yeast and sweetens your wine. The amount of honey you use will directly affect the sweetness of your wine. If you prefer sweeter wine, add more honey. If you don't like it as sweet, limit your honey to 2 cups. Take the type of fruit you're using into account as well. Since grapes have a high sugar content, you don't need to add a lot of honey to grape wine. Berries and other fruits with lower sugar content will need a little more honey. ● You can add sugar or brown sugar instead of honey if you'd like. ● You can always add more honey later if your wine doesn't come out as sweet as you like.

  • Add the yeast. If you're using your own yeast, now is the time to add it. Pour it into the crock and stir it into the mixture with a long-handled spoon. This mixture is called a must. ● If you're making wild yeast wine, you can skip this step. Pro Guide discount links: http://bit.ly/1fjDfN2 http://bit.ly/1rihiDk
  • Stir the must few times per day. The day after you make the mixture, uncover it and stir it thoroughly, and recover. Do this every 4 hours or so the first day, then keep stirring a few times per day for the next 3 days. The mixture should start bubbling as the yeast moves into action. This is the fermentation process that will lead to delicious wine. Pro Guide discount links: http://bit.ly/1fjDfN2 http://bit.ly/1rihiDk
  • Pro Guide discount link: Strain and siphon the liquid. When the bubbling slows down, about 3 days after it begins, it's time to strain out the solids and siphon the liquid into your carboy for longer-term storage. Once you've siphoned it into the carboy, affix the airlock to the opening to allow for the release of gas while preventing oxygen from coming in and spoiling your wine. ● If you don't have an airlock, you can use a small balloon placed over the opening. Every few days, pull off the balloon to let out the collected gas and replace it right away.
  • Let the wine age for at least one month. It's better if you can let it age for up to nine, during which time the wine will age and mellow, resulting in a much improved taste. If you used extra honey in your wine, it's better to age it on the longer side, or else it will taste too sweet when you drink it.

  • Bottle the wine. To prevent the wine from catching a bacteria that could cause it to turn to vinegar, add a Campden tablet to the mixture as soon as you remove the airlock. Siphon the wine into your clean bottles, filling them almost to the top, and cork them immediately. Allow the wine to further age in the bottles or enjoy it immediately.[5] ● Use dark bottles to preserve the color of red wines. Pro Guide discount links: http://bit.ly/1fjDfN2 http://bit.ly/1rihiDk
