|Lord Willum’s White Grape Raspberry Wine|
| This recipe is
specifically for my White Grape
Raspberry wine. It is a very good sweet dessert wine.
1 can generic White Grape Raspberry breakfast juice. I used
Welch's, but just make sure yours
doesn't have any preservatives.
1 cup white cane sugar.
1 regular tea bag.
1/16 tsp. (large pinch) Lalvin EC-1118 yeast.(Almost any wine yeast will do. Consult your local brew shop or buy online.)
Water to make 54 ounces total volume.
After 3 or 4 weeks total, put your bottle in the refrigerator for a couple days to chill the yeast and slow/stop the fermentation. After a day or two you should see a small amount of stuff on the bottom of the bottle. This is the dregs (dead yeast and stuff) that we don't want to drink. It won't hurt you (unless you are alergic), but it is not very tasty. Siphon out the "good stuff" into another container. Don't get greedy, leave a little liquid on the bottom if that's what it takes to avoid picking up the cloudy, yeasty stuff.
Your white grape raspberry wine is almost ready to drink! If you want, you may add sugar or honey to make it sweeter. Once you have reached this stage, you might want to read the section on Stopping fermentation.
