How to Make Wine? Home Made Wine From Blackberry
- By: Abhinav Sidana
For years I believed making wine is a secret passed on in the family. With computer and internet now accessed in every home, and with lots of good and kind Samaritans sharing their secrets and trials, I learned the recipe to make a good wine. Wine is a sophisticated beverage for all. Made of a wide variety of fruit, you can just choose the flavor of your choice and more to say mood!
Today I'd like to share with you my preference of wine, the very colorful and purple blackberry. This aggregate fruit is known for its medicinal properties and for being good for heart too. Since I believe in the power of simplicity, I like to stick to simplicity in my recipes too.
So let's get started with my simple blackberry wine. Put your berries in a clean bucket and crush them, (preferably by hand). Since this is a recipe for 1 gallon of wine, 4 and 1/2 pounds of berries is perfect. Crush the berries between your fingers and mix them well with 1.75 pints of boiled and cooled water. Trust the Campden tablets, to add that professional touch to your wine. Crush just one tablet in to a wee bit of warm water and mix this blend into the fruit. Leave this mix by itself fro 2 hours.
For the whole procedure you need 2 ½ lbs of sugar. Mix 1/3rd of the whole sugar and add with 50 ounces of water. Boil it well and bring it to cool. Add yeast to warm water and leave it for 10 minutes to rise. Add the cold sugar syrup as well as the ready yeast to the blackberry pulp you had crushed before. Mix it well and cover it well with a cloth and let it work on its own for 7 days.
After 1 week remove the cover cloth, and strain the mix and pour it into a container. Make sugar syrup of the remaining sugar with 1 pint of water, and add it to the strained juice when totally cool. Mix well. Pour this juice into airtight jar and plug them with airlocks forget it for the next 10 days.
Well do not lose patience when you are making wine. Wine is not made in 1 hour or even 10 hours. The older the wine, the better it tastes. So haste is waste friends! Siphon out your wine, to collect clear wine into another into another jar placed lower. The wine pours down into the lower jar leaving behind the coarse sediments. Bottle this freshly prepared home made blackberry wine in airtight bottles, leaving it to mature like the bond we share and nurture with our loved ones.
