How To Make Lavender Wine

Homemade Wine Recipe

Ingredients: Lavender Wine

1/4 pint dried lavender flowers (picked from the stems)
Juice from 1 lemon
Carton / tin white grape concentrate
2 1/2 lbs / 1,100 grams sugar
Wine yeast
1 teaspoon yeast nutrient / energiser
water - to make 1 gallon of wine

Method - What to Do

Extract the juice from the lemon and add to boiling water, together with the dried lavender flowers. Allow to cool and transfer lavender wine mixture to the fermentation bucklet, standing for three days. Strain and add all of the other ingredients, stirring for three days.

Transfer lavender wine liquor into demijohn with airlock. Once fermentation has finished, rack wine and then after three months, transfer to wine bottles, allowing to stand for several months, or longer.

Lavender wine has an unusual, zesty flavour and is not always suitable as a table wine, although it is particularly refreshing.
