Default Lychee Wine... and more

LYCHEE WINE

3 kg sugar
5 sweet limes juiced
500 gms raisins (white grape)
20 L lychee juice

Added a shredded piece of ginger after 15 days.

Steinberg yeast (thought it would keep the flavour smooth + i had it handy)
Yeast nutrient

Final Alcohol content 14%.

It is superb!

--------------------------------------
IMPROVED
--------------------------------------

My friends liked the above wine so much that i tried to make it with wild yeast.
I had to add more ginger this time by public demand.
The result is something that cannot be described in words.

Culture the ginger over a 20-30 days by adding fresh ginger and a spoonful of sugar each day.

Add the other ingredients and follow through the regular wine-making process.

I would strongly suggest all to try it.

--------------------------------------
EVEN BETTER
--------------------------------------

This last batch, was placed in the freezer for a while. The water froze leaving a very highly concentrated shot. Try this if you are adventurous. The ginger made a few people cough but they all wanted more in the end.


Cheers!

P.S. please let me know how yours turned out!

I am from India, here every store has lychee juice available easily.

I just googled it for your area and found this : http://valumarket.grocerydirect.com/...z/07752132110/

Also, there are heaps of choices available on ebay.

Hope it helps.

Cheers!
