So - you have decided that you
want to try your
hand at making some wine. This article will describe the basic steps
of the pitfalls to avoid to make sure your first batch turns out good
First things first - how much
do you want to
I recommend at least 5
gallons. Why? Because
beginning home wine makers just cannot wait to taste what they have
addition, 5 gallons is only 25 bottles. So you'll get the batch
then you will try a bottle or 2 or 3. Then you'll wait a week and try a
more bottles. Sooner than later, it will all be gone before it has a
age and get really good.
If you just want to do
something quick and
simple, you could do a gallon in a plastic milk jug. The drawback is,
have tasted it a few times - it's all gone and you'll have to start
With 5 gallons - you just
might be tempted to
let a few of the remaining bottles age. Believe it or not, the biggest
beginning winemakers make is not letting their wine age in the bottle.
difference in taste is, to put it mildly, AMAZING.
The next step is to decide
which type of juice
you want to ferment. Grape juice, cranberry juice, muscadine, and
all good starter choices. The first 3 should produce a rather normal
wine while cherries usually will give you a sweeter wine. Of course,
always add sugar to sweeten your wine after it is stabilized and has
The next step is to completely
sterilize all of
the containers and equipment you will be using. Some people use
water, others recommend using a sanitizer. I like the sanitizer because

just rinse everything off with hot water.
Put your juice in your 5
gallon bucket - that's
the next step. BUT - it's not time to put your yeast in yet.
We first want to sterilize our
or our juice. You can do this with 4 Campden Tablets. These are sulfite
that will get rid of any type of bacteria that could be present in the
Crush the tablets and then dissolve them in some warm water and then
in your juice or "must". Let this sit overnight while the sulfites do
24 hours later, you are ready
to sprinkle in or
"pitch" your yeast.
The type of yeast you decide
to use is really a
question that is beyond the scope of this article. However, I'll say
are hundreds of different yeast strains for literally thousands of
uses. For our first batch, we can just use the bakers yeast that you
find at the grocery store. Later, and after some research, you will
want to use one of the specialized strains.
Now - wait 7 days and watch.
you will want to
cover your bucket with a cloth towel or even put on a lid with an
place. The wine will be perfectly safe during the fermentation stage

oxygen in the air.
Once the 7 days has passed,
siphon off the wine
from the bucket into another bucket or into a glass "carboy". These
can be found online or at your local wineshop. When you are doing the
siphoning, you will want to get as little of the gunk on the bottom of
bucket as possible. This gunk is called "lees" and is made up of dead
yeast. Wine that sits on top of the dead yeast sometimes can develop an
Once your wine has been
transferred into what is
called your "secondary fermenter", then you will want to put an
airlock in place and just let it sit for about a month. There's a song

budding home winemaker just cannot wait to taste the stuff - but -
don't do it.
It surely won't hurt you but during this month it is still fermenting.
isn't finished yet. Be Patient.
After the month is up, you
will want to transfer
it back to your bucket, again making sure that you leave the gunk on
bottom. The process of transferring the wine from one vessel to another
called "racking". Why? That's something I am going to research for
You are just about there.
Theres only one thing
left to do and that is to add a "stablizer" to your wine. A
stabilizer inhibits yeast reproduction. In essence, it stops yeast from
it's thing. Part of what happens during yeast growth and reproduction
it releases Co2 gas. If that is happening after you bottle the wine,
get popped corks or exploded bottles or both. So - put in the
the wine well, and then return it to your Secondary Carboy fermentation
Be sure and clean out the secondary and sterilize it before you do.
Now, all you have to do at
this point is wait
until the wine clears. Gravity is your friend here. Of course, it won't

clear. The clearing process is another subject that you can find a
of information on in other guides and books and I suggest you read up

Bottling time! All you have to
do is make sure
your bottles are clean and sanitized and just siphon the wine into the

I guarantee it. Happy winemaking!
Homemade wine making is fast
popular across the world. There are several reasons for this.
The biggest one is that the
cost to transport
that yummy nectar from where they grow, harvest, and ferment it is
right along with the cost of fuel. There's no two ways around it - we
to see bottles of wine at the grocery store and wine shops double.
In the last year, there has
been a flurry of
"How To" guides crop up around the internet. All of the guides are
helpful and at least can get a beginner started.
The truth is, you can make
high quality wine,
award winning wine, at home, in a 5 gallon food bucket.
Some preparation and materials
are required. You
have to at least have a hydrometer. You need at least the 5 gallon
bucket. AND -
you need some kind of near air tight secondary fermentation vessel. In
industry we call this a "carbouy".
There are very inexpensive
airlocks and some
plastic tubing to round out the equipment.
Some chemicals may be required
as well. Yeast is
an obvious first one (not really a chemical but a dormant microbe).
acid, potassium sorbate, metabisulfate, campden tablets, pectin enzyme
few others are pretty common.
The biggest secret in home
wine making is: get
the good stuff to start with.
There are actually vineyards
that will sell
small quantities of grapes or even crushed grapes and juices, fresh
vineyard. Although these are hard to locate, they do exist. I have
least one wine making guide that lists these sources.
Aside from the money savings
(you can make wine
for about 25 cents a bottle), there is the actual enjoyment of making
that you can drink! If your batch comes out really good, you will be
all your neighbors and friends to come and give it a try.
Cheers and happy wine making!
