Homemade Wine with Grapes

This comes a little early. Wanted to post this for Christmas...but then again, you can have this for Christmas only if you start the procedures now. So here it is..... :)



Grapes : 1 kg (purple grapes)
Sugar: 1 kg
Water: 1.5 litres (boiled and cooled)
Yeast: 2 tsp
Wheat: A handful (Kernels, not the powdered one)
Cinnamon, cloves, staranise: 2 each


Wash the grapes well.
Pat dry. Crush the grapes with your hand or pulse it just once in your mixie.
Mix all the ingredients together in a jar.
For the first 15 days, stir this mix twice a day.
Then for a week, stir it once a day.
After that leave it untouched.
After 45 days (from when you first mixed everything) open the jar and strain liquid with the help of a muslin cloth.
Store in clean glass bottles.

    1. when u mix everything and keep, u can use plastic jars.. yes, thats what i always use (a plastic bucket with a lid specifically kept for this) and as for the wheat, I always use wheat kernals (whole and not broken) and I usually tie it in a muslin/ t-shirt material and drop it in the mix. its ok if u dont tie also...

    1. Mariam, it is not complicatedn at all.. its neither seedless grapes nor do u have to deseed them. u just crush it as it is and after 45 days when u strain, the seeds, the skin and all gets thrown away... again after u strain, keep it for sometime for the wine to get crystal clear... :) thats all..
