In order to make homemade wine from jam, you will need the following:
Recipes for the preparation of a wine drink
If all you need is at your fingertips, then proceedto the process of making wine. To begin, we prepare the container, where the wine from the jam will be stored. It can be enameled, ceramic or glass, but not metallic, so that the oxidation process does not occur. You can take a 3-liter jar and rinse it thoroughly with soda, rinse several times with warm running water and give it with boiled water from the kettle. Now you need to pour the water into the pan and put it on the fire. In a glass container with a tablespoon we shift homemade jam, half a glass of sugar, washed raisins. In order to make the wine even tastier, you can mix several types of jam. For example, add sweet sour to the sweet or add a spoonful of honey. Thus, a new wine recipe with a thin honey taste will be obtained. After the water in the saucepan boils, it should be cooled to room temperature and poured into a container with jam and raisins. All the ingredients are mixed well and covered with a cap cap. Put the bottle in a dark room and while we forget about it.
What is the process of fermentation?
After about 10 days, you need to open the lid. Gently, using gauze and spoon, remove the mash from the surface. We merge the squeezed thick mixture from the pulp into a saucepan. This primary fermentation product is commonly referred to as a wort. In order to ferment faster, you can add a little yeast for baking bread or wine, only not beer. We pour it into a well washed jar. Now take the rubber glove and pierce its tips with a needle. We put it on the neck of the jar, and remove the can itself again in a dark cool place for about 3 months. Usually this time is enough for the wort to ferment and insist. The color of the wine should be transparent. Now, in order to store homemade wine from jam, you will need to take glass bottles with a capacity of 500 or 700 ml. Bottles of plastic take is not recommended, since alcoholic beverages can deteriorate. Using a dishwashing brush, rinse the container thoroughly, turn it over and let the water drain. Now, from the neck of the jar we remove the glove and with the help of a special tube we pour wine into bottles. It should be noted that this should be done carefully, so as not to affect the sediment formed as a result of fermentation. We close the bottles with wooden stoppers and again leave in a dark cool room for about 2 months. After the expiration of the above period, the domestic wine from the jam is ready for consumption. It is preliminary recommended to leave it for a while in the refrigerator, and then pour into a decanter. Wine from an old jam can be made not only in this way. Now there are different recipes and modifications, and everyone chooses something that he likes more, depending on what ingredients are available. For example, in a jar of jam it is required to pour 1 cup of unwashed rice or millet, add fresh yeast (20 g) and pour warm boiled water. This recipe is also good because you can experiment with taste and insist on wine on mint, cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, mint. One should also take into account the fact that the wine alcoholic drink turns out to be quite strong (about 10 degrees), so it's important to have a sense of proportion.
