Default Carrot wine is delicious!

I just bottled, and holy crap. I was skeptical, but this came out tasty!

4 lbs carrots, (grated and boiled in one gallon of water. I just poured the carrot water through a strainer onto the raisins)
2 lbs brown sugar
a little cinnamon and nutmeg
1 lb thompson raisins
lalvin d47

No secondary
yield = 1 gallon

Ended up pretty dry. And strong. I'm on an empty stomach, but I poured myself a pint of this while bottling, and I feel it. yeayeah!


I'm glad this came out good, 'cause I started a five gallon batch a few days ago based on the smell of the one gallon batch. Ha!
I can't wait to see how it ages.

Sounds interesting. I might be brave enough to try it one day.

Cost about three bucks to make a gallon.
Why wouldn't you? ha!

I have a spare gallon jug laying around, so I might give this a shot. I thought yuck, the first time I heard about carrot soup; but, it is delicious. I imagine it will be the same with the wine. With that said, what was your OG, and how long did you age it for?

I don't own a hydrometer.

I haven't aged yet. I just took a pint for "research" as I was bottling.
I've read a few suggestions on aging ranging from a couple months to a couple years. I'm going to try and leave this for a year. I've got five gallons more going right now, so that shouldn't be toooo hard. ha.

And speaking of weird soup, my girl made some bell pepper soup that was freaking great. Very similar to tomato.
I wonder how bell peppers would fare as booze.

Interesting. I just tried fermenting carrot juice cut with apple cider a couple weeks back and man it was weird! I bottled it anyways to see how it ages..Its probably a better idea to boil like you did. How much of a carrot taste did it end up with? I imagine your OG was pretty high w/ 2lb of sugar in one gallon! Carrot Beer?

That's a neat idea. I juice carrots when I make health drinks but I've never fermented it. I thought it would be too soupy and strong. Boiling it sounds like a much better idea.

I never would have seen this thread had it not been bumped, and I gotta say, I love the idea so very very much.
