Strawberry Wine

| No TrackBacks

Mid-April, strawberries went on sale for a dollar a pound. So with six dollars burning a hole in my pocket, I decided to part with them in exchange for a dry wine with a perfectly distinct strawberry character.


     Strawberry Wine


6 Pounds Strawberries

15 Cups Dextrose

2 ½ Gallons Water


Boil up just like strawberry jam. Cool it, pitch a little Lalvin K1-V1116 and you are all set. 1.050 OG (Original Gravity). After ten days I re-racked. After two weeks I added a little gelatin, let is settle for a week and bottled.

And for all you New Zealanders out there it makes a great Eau De Vie.
