I never post any brew recipes but this is my favorite out of the many gallons of wine I have made and recipes I have come up with. This wine is dry but doesn't seem dry because the smell and body are so nice. I would compare this to a champagne, the peach flavor is light yet comes through very well because of the wonderful boquet.

I love Apfelwein and always have 5 gallons on tap but now it is going slow. The peach wine is just as dry but has no sourness like an Apfelwein. Plus this really doesn't have to age, it tastes great young.

Don't drink a few pint glasses of this, it is probably well over 10%!

White Grape Peach 5 gallons
5 gallons of White Grape Peach Juice (I prefer wal-mart brand)
3 cans White Grape Peach juice frozen concentrate (thawed)
2 cans Niagare White Grape frozen concentrate (thawed)
D47 yeast

Easy directions: Mix the above, put in carboy, wait 2 months or until clear which usually takes 4-5 weeks, bottle, enjoy!

Optional: Pectic Enzyme, Yeast Nutrient

Starting Gravity: really high
Finishing Gravity: Low


All of this goes in a 5 gal carboy, make sure to shake everything well to oxygenate and mix the concentrate in. Then add the pectic enzyme per diretions and let it work if you have some, this just helps it clear but you probably don't need it. Then I pitch the yeast. I usually make a starter. After a day or two I add some nutrient which you also really don't need. I use foil for an airlock for a week then switch to a real one. This helps the wine take up O2 during the respiration phase, once again, not necessary.

Now just wait a month or so until it clears and if you can stand it age it for a couple of months. No need to rack!

Carb it up with 5-6 oz of corn sugar or keg it, it will go fast!

Try it, it is awesome. I have even made some 1/2 gallon batches right in the bottle the juice came in and they were great! For those I used corn sugar instead of concentrate and boosted the og to 1.072-74 which made a lighter but very good wine.

I made this and added some Apricot, and it turned out great. Just a long name when asked what it was, so I shortened the name to WGPA (White Grape Peach Apricot)

How much corn sugar do you add for a 1 gallon batch to get the og up that high?

If you don't want to use a hydrometer, you can calculate how much sugar to add by using an online calculator such as at:
http://www.brewhaus.com/Calculators-C108.aspx (third one down)

See how much sugar you are starting with by reading the label on the juice bottle/can, then calculate how much you need to add to get to the desired potential.

I made a 1 gallon batch of this today. 1 gallon of white grape peach juice + 4oz corn sugar. Juice SG of 1.065. Gravity after adding corn sugar was 1.075. Pitched one package of D47. Smells really good. Can't wait til it's done.

Any updates? I think I might bottle my JAOM to make room for this...
