How To Make Barley Wine

Homemade Wine Recipe

Ingredients: Barley Wine

1 lb / 450 grams barley
1 lb / 450 grams raisins
1 lb / 450 grams potatoes
4 lbs / 1,800 grams sugar
1 lemon
1 orange
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Wine yeast
7 pints of hot water (boiled)

Method - What to Do

Wash and boil all of the barley for around 30 minutes. Strain and transfer liquor to winemaking fermentation bucket, adding sugar. Stir to dissolve sugar and add the raisins (chopped), the potatoes (chopped), the ground ginger, and the juice of the lemon and orange. Allow the mixture to cool to just above room temperature and stir in activated wine yeast.

Stir twice a day for around two weeks and then transfer the barley wine 'must' into a sterilised demijohn, fitting an airlock. Rack once fermentation has stopped, after approximately two to three months. Rack twice more and bottle when the barley wine is 12 months old and has cleared. Allow barley wine to stand for a minimum of six months.
