Thanks...I used white wine the last time, but thought I'd better get an expert opinion! Cheers!

why commercial wine?

Well, ideally you'd top up with dandelion wine, but often people don't have that on hand so commercial wine is cheap and easy.

I'm pretty sure it's implied using your own white wine is just fine as well. :-)

I am in the picking and plucking phase (awful). There is really no good way to measure the volume of dandelion petals. Obviously unless you compress the petals the volume can be very variable with how much open space is in the pile. Also weighing it can be variable because of how wet or dry the petals are. For example Yooper said 4 qts. = 90 grams. I am at 290 grams and don't have a gallon of volume yet. So obviously very variable. I am shooting for 400 grams or until I can't pluck anymore

Not bashing whatsoever just putting in my two cents.

Making 5 - 6 gallons this weekend. Ingredients:
400 grams of dandelion petals
4 gallons of water
12 lbs of sugar
8 lemons
4 oranges
4 lbs of raisins
yeast

Thanks for the recipe Yooper

This may have been covered but I am having trouble finding the info. Is it really an hour long boil? I plan on doing this recipe but subbing the sugar for orange blossom honey. However I can't see why it would be an hour long boil for wine, but I am not a wine maker.

wouldn't straining the wine and pouring it after 3 days cause it to oxidize?
