Post Wine Making Is Easier Than You Might Believe!
Wine Making Is Easier Than You Might Believe!
by: Andy Guides Jr

If there's ever been a food or drink with a history behind it, it's wine. Used practically since the beginning of civilization by king and commoner alike, it's a drink that speaks to our more refined sensibilities and offers us a chance to not just consume a beverage, but to get lost in it, think about it, and really, truly enjoy it. For those that truly love wine, however, nothing can compare to the thrill of actually making and bottling their own blend. Ignored for years as something that only the experts could do, wine making is really quite simple!

When you first set out to make wine, it can seem like an overwhelming process with too many steps to make sense out of. In a sense, this is true. People have been making wine for thousands of years and naturally, there's a lot of advice on the subject. However, for the purposes of just getting a feel for the process, the following four steps lay things out nicely.

Extracting the flavor of your main ingredients is the first step in the process. Obviously, you're going to need some grapes and you're going to need to transfer them to grape juice, but what else? Why not boil some other fruits and add the infusion to the mix? Alternately, you could give your wine hints of chocolate or vanilla or other uncommon flavors. Use your imagination!

When your extract is ready, you're all set up to move on to fermenting. With a simple blend of yeast and other active agents, you can begin fermenting in just a covered pot. Within a few days, you should see activity, and after ten days, real progress.

By this point, your product will likely have separated into some pulpy matter and a liquid. You're going to want to place just the liquid in a separate container, this time airtight, for additional fermentation. This step can take several weeks.

Eventually, the yeast will have worked until the alcoholic content of the mixture is so high that it simply can't live anymore, usually around twelve to fourteen percent. When this happens, the wine will take on a clear look, like something you'd buy at the store. So, what comes next? You guessed it: bottling and corking! After a year for reds or half a year for whites, you'll be ready for your first taste.

So there you have it. While wine making is an ancient tradition about which much has been said and written, there's no reason why the beginner can't jump in and try his or her hand. Just follow the steps in this article and you should be sampling your very first cask of vino in no time at all!
