Happy Hobbit: Strawberry Wine – Episode 65

May 30, 2015 at 2:42 pm by Kili  - 

Learn how to (and how not to) make strawberry wine worthy of the Woodland Realm with Kili!

 

STRAWBERRY WINE (1 gallon)

Ingredients:

3-4 lbs of fresh, ripe strawberries
2.5 lbs of sugar
1 gallon of pre-boiled water
2 tsp citric acid
1 tsp yeast nutrient
1 tsp yeast

Instructions:

Mash the strawberries. Add mashed berries and sugar to a crock pot. Add 2 tsb citric acid. Pour the boiled water over the mixture and dissolve the sugar as much as possible.

Once the mixture cools, add yeast nutrient and yeast. Stir.
Let the mixture sit for a week, stirring every day.

After one week, strain the strawberries and squeeze out the juice into a sanitized glass carboy. Good luck. If needed, sterilize more water by boiling. Allow it to cool then add it to your wine. Attach an airlock and let sit for 4 weeks.

After a month, rack your wine (siphon it into another sanitized carboy).

Rack once a month for 4-6 months.

Bottle. Enjoy!
