How To Make Lettuce Wine
Homemade Wine Recipe
Ingredients: Lettuce Wine
2 1/2 lbs / 1,100 grams lettuce - including red lettuce
3 lbs / 1,350 grams sugar
1 teaspoon citric acid
8 pints / 1 gallon water
Method - What to Do
Wash and chop lettuces. It is important to include red lettuces, to give the lettuce wine a rose colour. Add the lettuce to a saucepan of boiling water and simmer for around 15 minutes. Strain lettuce liquor thoroughly and pour into winemaking fermentation bucket. Add all of the remaining lettuce wine ingredients, except for the wine yeast, and stir vigorously to dissolve all of the sugar.
When the lettuce wine mixture has cooled to room temperature, add the activated wine yeast to begin fermentation. Stir the lettuce wine 'must' twice daily for three days and then transfer to demijohn. Rack after two months, and then again two more times until completely clear and stable. Bottle lettuce wine and allow to stand for several months before drinking.
