Old-Fashion Homemade Fruit Wine
Home Made Wine
1 gallon fruit of choice(crushed)
1 gallon water
5 lb. sugar
1/8 tsp. wine yeast (or) 3 tsp. reg. yeast


Let yeast sit in warm water. Add all other ingredients into a container that will hold at least 2 gallons. Make sure sugar is dissolved completely. Add yeast and stir. Cover container with a bag and string or use an airlock for wine making.

In about 2 months you will have some fine homemade wine.

Strain off fruit and filter out sediments. You may have to repeat the filtering process several times to get a clear wine especially if you don't use wine yeast.

VERY IMPORTANT:You can taste the green wine, but let it sit and age about another 2-3 weeks before completely indulging. It will cause an upset stomach if drank too soon.
