4 kg of bananas, 450 grams of raisins, 3 kg of sugar, 1 liter of strong tea, 1 dl of orange juilce and 1 dl of lemon juice. And of course yeast.

Peal the bananas and add them and the raisins to 5 liters of water, pour in the orange juice, lemon juice, the tea and boil for 30 minutes.

Separate the gunk with a strainer and pour the liquid into a fermentation bucket. Add more water and the suger until you hit 10 liter. Pitch the yeast. The one used in this recipe is a generic strong wine yeast.

No idea how it tastes though, I love bananas but I don't think they'd make a good wine. Although, it's kinda popular here in Sweden.

I made a banana wine once and it was really good... really really good in fact I don't know why I have not made it again.

5 lbs bannans
2 lbs brown sugar
1 gallon of water
1/2 tsp. acid blend
pectic enzyme is a must!!!! didn't use any and I had banana jelly floating in the top of my primary fermenter.

Then use normal fruit wine procedures. primary ferment with fruit in nylon bags week to 10 days and then move liquid to a secondary and so on and so on. When it was all said and done the wine tasted kind of like a dry cream soda. It was really good!!!! If you gave it to some one and said "what does this taste like?" they would never say banana but once you knew you could totally taste the banana

I have a really nice banana wine recipe posted. (Look under my avatar at the "recipes" pulldown). It is really good, and the instructions are simple.

Hi i'm new to the whole wine making process. I've purchased a 64oz. container of Welch's Concord grape juice that I want to use as a starter. Do you or anyone you might know can give me a few pointers on how to begin?

I have a recipe posted for Welch's juice, so you can check that out. It's easy. The only thing is you have to look at the label. Often the juice (but not the frozen juice) has sodium benzoate, a preservative that won't ferment. You can't use a juice with benzoate or sorbate.
