This recipe, I believe is for those who "lyketh not wimmin"

😂

APRICOCK WINE

 

Take three pounds of sugar, and three quarts of water; let them boil together and skim it well. Then put in six pounds of apricocks, pared and stoned, and let them boil until they are tender; then take them up and when the liquor is cold bottle it up. You may if you please, after you have taken out the apricocks, let the liquor have one boil with a sprig of flowered clary in it; the apricocks make marmalade, and are very good for preserves.

On a more serious note, I made some Dandelion wine around 40 years ago. It was a real chore separating the flowers from the stems, but it tasted deeeliscious!!

Just been checking my passion fruit wine,  The airlock has stopped bubbling, but as the experts tell you, airlocks are only an indication fermentation is happening not  full proof. This is very true as i still have a good active fermentation going on, just light co2 not enough to make the airlock bubble + i have checked for air leaks none to be seen. So sunday o.g had dropped to 1.020 so will check again thursday and let you know, it is also clearing very quickly with no added finings.

Checked the passion fruit wine this morning and it has dropped to 1.010 so i decided that it would make a good fizzy wine, so i bottled it, i have a good method for removing any sediment in the bottles after it clears. Had about 1kg of frozen passion fruit pulp left and 1kg of bananas so made another 5L batch of passion fruit & banana wine yesterday.

Tried the Carrot wine last night. Pale yellow colour, but just tastes a bit vague.

Rice & raisin's is still fermenting as long as it goes in the direct sun everyday. Outside temperature is 17°C, so during the night the wine either slows down or stops. I'll measure the SG on Friday.

My carrot wine tasted terrible last year, down the sink it went, won't make it again maybe it was the carrots, i don't find they taste very nice here, might be the fertilizer they use.

My Riceberry & Raisin is going very slowly, from 12% down to 7% in a week. Will put it out in the sun when it gets over 20 degrees. Brrrrrrrrrr. it's cold.

I'll keep mine for 6 months & if it doesn't taste any better, out it goes!

My Mrs tell me that there is some kind of yeast/enzyme which converts the starch in rice into sugar, used for making Lao Kao. What is it please?

At those reduced prices you could be making reasonable vino for less than Bht 100 a bottle.

So are you saying that you will add 5 litres of water to each litre of concentrate?

I like to do 10 litre batches, 2 x Jamago plus 8 of water, which gives 16 x 620 ml beer bottles ie two week's consumption ! I do not have storage space for more.

Yes that is correct, the new fermenter collects the yeast its a conical fermenter you no longer need to rack start to finish in one, when finished just store in 1 gallon containers.

How's the rice & raisin doing, the passion/banana i started has the strongest fermentation i''ve seen so far and is still going strong for 4 day's now even at low temps, sure it's going to finish in around a week.

Seems to be slowing down, & it's at 11% - hoping for more, but the wide range of temperature isn't, I don't think, helping.

I'll rack it off later, & see how it goes.

I think the passion/banana will taste very good, the sharpness being balanced by the bananas.

My last batch of passion fruit and gooseberry did go very slow for 2 weeks but did increase the % at the end to about 15%, i blame myself for that to much gooseberry made it to acid for the yeast, i will use less next time, gooseberry i find better than lemon for acid, gives the wine a sharper bite in a dry wine.
