How To Make Redcurrant Wine

Homemade Wine Recipe

Ingredients: Redcurrant Wine

4 lb / 1,800 grams redcurrants
1 campden tablet
3 1/2 lb / 1,600 grams sugar
Water up to 1 gallon
Yeast nutrient
Wine yeast

Method - What to Do

Wash the fruit, removing any stems, and press into a bowl with a wooden spoon. Bring four pints of water to the boil and pour over the fruit. Add the campden tablet. Cover and leave to stand for 24 hours, stirring occasionally. Strain through a fine sieve into a fermentation bucket. Boil three pints of water and dissolve the sugar in it. Pour the syrup on to the fruit and when cool add the yeast nutrient and wine yeast. Cover and leave for seven days in a warm place, stirring daily. Strain through a fine sieve and put 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.
