Delicious Homemade Wine

The making of homemade wine traces back thousands of years ago. It sounds complicated, but it is not. In fact, you can make wine using any type of fruit such as apples, blackberries, and grapes –typically the most popular choice. You only need patience because you have to wait for almost six months before you can actually drink it.

And of course, the right equipment! It is an affordable hobby because you can buy the starter pack for just € 23. Before you start to make a delicious homemade wine, don’t forget to clean your workplace and all utensils as well, otherwise, your wine will turn into vinegar.

2

After which, the crock should be moved to a hot place. (Note: The fermentation process usually starts after two days! The yeasts are responsible to convert the sugar into alcohol.)

8

Place it in a bottle and you’re done! Cheers! You can drink and enjoy your homemade wine! (Tip: If you wish to know how create apple cider, try the same process, but using apples.)
