Things to keep in mind when making homemade wine

Published

on

Finding grapes

 

Grapes are the most important element of the process. You have likely overheard or entered a conversation on the success of a particular crop during a plentiful year. The price of a bottle is largely dependent upon the quality of the fruit. It may be tempting to grow your own grapes. However, growing your own grapes can be a significant struggle with a lot of blood, sweat and tears (and time, land and money). If you are prepared for this struggle, then certainly go for it, but know that there are plenty of other ways to find the quality fruit you require.

 

Starting small

As a beginning winemaker, you do not want to get in over your head. It can be an extensive process, and it requires a lot of time and care. As such, be careful not to commit to too much and completely overwhelm yourself. Instead begin with one or two 7-gallon jugs and the equipment recommended for your batch size. Once you have tested out a small batch, you can determine if you are ready for everything involved.

 

The science of fermentation

While the specific recipes and techniques may vary, winemaking boils down to the act of fermentation. Therefore, the most important thing to understand when crafting your own recipe is the science behind fermentation. Therefore, wine is created through the interaction between the sugar in grapes and yeast. During fermentation, you need to be careful to prevent contamination from additional yeasts and toxins in the air. To prevent this you need to put an airlock on your vessel, which allows carbon dioxide to escape without letting oxygen in. After the alcohol level has reached roughly 14 percent, your beverage is ready to be bottled and enjoyed.
