Last night i started my very first attempt at brewing anything. I decided to start simple, and made 1 gallon of "jug wine". I combined the recipe lorenae gave me on another post with a recipe from a friend who had made similar wines a few times, and this is what i came up with:
2 cans of welches frozen white grape juice
1 can of welches frozen harvest blend juice (apple, white grape and pear combo)
1 cup of sugar dissolved in hot water
1 tsp pectic enzyme, 1 tsp yeast nutrient, 1tsp acid blend
Lavin K1-V1116 wine yeast
I chose the K1-V1116 because it ferments fast and tollerates a wide temperature range, which is important as my appartment is not air conditioned. My wine making friend uses this yeast a lot for one gallon batches and in his experiance fermentation is usually done within a week.
Let me know what you guys think of my recipe and i'll let you know how it is!
