Yes, I jumped on the bandwagon. Just had to see what all the hype was about. Now I can add winemaker to my ever growing list of talents, lol
This was the recipe I followed.
I ordered the yeast from Amazon and almost assaulted my poor UPS guy the day it was delivered. I was so excited to get started, even knowing it was not a quick process. I already had purchased the grape juice and it was getting so lonely sitting on the counter.
The beginning of the process.
Once all the ingredients are in the pot and set on the low yogurt setting, I had to alternate venting and sealing it every 8 hours for a full 48 hours.
After 48 hours. The almost-wine is poured back into the grape juice bottle to sit. I’m sure this is used as a decoy because if it was put into a wine bottle, everyone would know. How sneaky 🙂 Notice how cloudy it looks. And the tape is there to hold the lid in place since you can’t screw it on tight or it could explode off. And not only would that make the mess of the century, but what a waste of perfectly good wine. It definitely smells like wine.
Now I put in a dark section of my pantry to work its’ magic. I check it after 10 days.
I don’t love it. I don’t hate it. I bet the more I drink, the better it will taste, right? Cheers 🙂
