How To Make Potato Wine
Homemade Wine Recipe
Ingredients: Potato Wine Recipe
2 1/2 lbs / 1,100 grams potatoes
1 lb / 450 grams pearl barley
3 lb / 1,350 grams sugar
1/2 lb / 225 grams chopped sultanas
8 pints / 1 gallon water
Method - What to Do
Wash the potatoes thoroughly and chop them but do not peel. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan with the pearl barley and simmer until the potatoes are tender. Strain into a bucket on to the sugar and stir until the sugar has completely dissolved. When cool add the chopped sultanas, orange juice and wine yeast and cover the bucket and leave for five days. Strain into a demijohn and leave to ferment.
When fermentation has ceased, rack the wine into a clean jar and place in a cooler environment and leave for a further few months. Rack again if necessary and leave until the wine is clear and stable and then bottle. This wine goes on improving for well over 12 months.
