How To Make Citrus Wine

Homemade Wine Recipe

Ingredients: Citrus Wine

5 oranges
1 tangerine
1 grapefruit
3 lemons
2 lb / 225 grams sultanas
2 lb / 900 grams sugar
Water up to 1 gallon
Yeast nutrient
Wine yeast

Method - What to Do

Put sugar and sultanas in a fermentation bucket and add boiling water. Stir until all the sugar has dissolved. Leave to cool. Squeeze juice from all the fruit and place in the fermentation bucket. Add the yeast nutrient and wine yeast. Cover and leave to ferment for five days, stirring daily. Using a fine sieve strain the liquid into a demijohn and fit an airlock to seal the jar.

Store in a warm place and allow the fermentation to work. When fermentation has ceased, rack the wine into a clean jar and place in a cooler environment and leave. When the wine is clear and stable siphon into bottles.
