Default Wineberries...what do I do with these? Wine :)

They are a species of raspberry Rubus phoenicolasius - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I have found a bunch of these berries and have been picking them and putting them in the freezer until I have a bunch. They are a little tart but good. I could not find any reference to making wine with them.

Anyone have a receipe?

As usual, Jack has the answers.

Wineberry wine
winemaking: requested recipes (Wineberry Wine)

WINEBERRY WINE

* 2-1/2 lbs ripe wineberries
* 2-1/2 lbs granulated sugar
* 1 tsp acid blend
* 1/2 tsp pectic enzyme
* 1/4 tsp tannin
* 7-1/2 pints boiling water
* 1 crushed Campden tablet
* 1 tsp yeast nutrient
* wine yeast


Use only sound, ripe berries, washed and destemmed. Crush berries and put all ingredients except yeast in primary. Pour boiling water over ingredients and stir well to dissolve sugar. Cover with plastic wrap until cooled to 70-75 degrees F. Add yeast, recover, and stir daily 5-6 days. Strain out fruit pulp and press to extract juice. Transfer to secondary, top up, fit airlock, and set in dark, cooler (60-65 degrees F.) place. Rack in 3 weeks and again in 3 months. Rack again in 3 months, stabilize, sweeten to taste if desired, and set aside 1 month before bottling. Store in dark place to preserve color. Age one year. [Author's own recipe]

Thanks.

I was also thinking of adding some apple or wine juice in place of some of the water.

Certainly could, just adjust the sugar accordingly.

Cheers,

Joe
