How to Make Homemade Wine

Updated on March 28, 2011

Wine is art in a bottle. Each one has its own set of characteristics. If you think you need your own vineyard to create your own wine, then you are mistaken. With the right tools, ingredients and a little bit of patience, you can learn how to make a homemade wine. This is one of the most enjoyable and fun activities to do that allows for great bonding with family and friends.

Let’s begin. Mix the Juice and water in the glass gallon container. Mix the juice and water well, by vigorously shaking the covered gallon. Add and completely dissolve half a cup of sugar in the mix, then shake again. Pour warm water on a separate bowl, sprinkle the wine yeast and three tablespoons of sugar.

The yeast will need to foam up so set it aside until it is about and inch high, then you can pour it in with the mixture and shake again. It is all set to start fermenting. Poke about five holes on the balloon using the pin.

Remove the cover of your container and replace it with the balloon and secure it using your rubber band. Place the container in a warm corner for about 2 weeks. You will know you’re doing the right thing when you notice the balloon inflating in the next few days.

After 2 weeks the balloon will have deflated and this completes your fist stage. Carefully pour the fermented wine in the second glass container, leaving any residue. The flavors should lock in after about another 2 weeks in storage.

Feature your very first masterpiece with your friends at a private wine tasting. You can teach them how to make homemade wine in a month and you just might start a new tradition for you and your friends. Cheers!
