Instructions

Step 1

Wash and sort your apples. Use only solid firm fruit. Cut your apples into smaller pieces and press the juice from your apples.

(If you do not have a press to press the juice out of your apples you can put your cut up apples into a nylon straining bag and press the juice out through the mesh as they ferment. They will get soft so keep squeezing periodically.)


Put your juice into your Primary Fermenter and add your crushed Campden Tablet and Pectic Enzyme. This will help with the clearing of your wine.

Stir in all other ingredients except for the anti oxidant and your Yeast and cover your fermenter.

Step 2

After 24 hours add your yeast and cover your fermenter.

Take the sugar gravity with your hydrometer Starting Specific Gravity (S.G.) should be between 1.085 – 1.090

Stir your batch every day and check the Specific Gravity with your Hydrometer. In about 3 – 5 days your S.G. should be about 1.040.

Step 3

Now you will siphon your wine off of the sediment into your secondary container which is usually your glass carboy.

(The sediment is the stuff that accumulates at the bottom of your container.)

Attach your airlock and wait for your fermentation to be complete.

You will know it is complete when your S.G. has reached 1.000. This will take about 3 weeks.

Step 4

Siphon your wine off the sediment into a clean secondary carboy, reattach your airlock.

You will wait about 2 months and then siphon your wine off the sediment again. Keep doing this until your wine is clear. If it is clear now then it is time to bottle.

Step 5

Before bottling add your anti oxidant.

Let wine sit for a couple of months before drinking.

To spirits and cheers,
