Default Cranberry Grape

Color: Dark Purple
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 35 days @ ~70F

10# Regular Cane Sugar
7 Containers 100% Grape Juice
5 Containers Cranberry Concentrate
1pkt Redstar Montrachet Yeast
1 tbls Energizer
1 tbls Nutrient
Water to 5-6 Gallons

1) Dissolved sugar in 3-4 Gallons of H2O.

3) Added sugar water to primary
4) Started yeast in mason jar of combined solution at ~85F.
5) Pitched yeast into brewbucket and added water to bring to 6 gal

Sat in an Ale Pail on my kitchen counter for two weeks. Regular room temp 70F-75F

Used blue plastic 5gal water jug (the type found at lowes etc).

Continued fermenting at 70F-75F until bubbling has almost completely ceased

NOTE: Seems I tend bottle too soon and my bottles are rather carbed. If you fear for bottle bombs wait a little longer to bottle. But the sparkling nature of the wine makes it WAY better and more fun.

Bottled into 24 regular 750ml wine bottles.

~~Notes & Comments~~
- VERY bubbly after a few weeks.

~~Moral of the story~~
Cheap. Yummy. Enjoyed by all.

In Progress: White Clover Wine
In Progress: Blueberry Wine (1)
In Progress: Fresh Fig Wine
In Progress: Ginger Spiced Cider
Bottled: oodles and oodles
