Hello any and all and thanks for taking the time to read me.
I am somewhat new to making wine from things. As a kid I made it and sold it in school and have since grown up but back then it was only due to mom leaving her wine making books out. So it’s been close to 30 years and a lot of forgetting that I come here
Recipe I used from what I remembered without reading anything, when all ells fails read directions rite? lol
19lbs strawberries de-stemmed sat in fridge all night in distilled water. Used that water.
2 cups Lipton tea made hot and cooled before added from 3 tea bags
Ok here is what I did. We found this place that had some really sweet awesome strawberries. They were not large berries, a little larger then wild ones. But really really sweet. So I got about 19lbs of them spent all day long getting the leafs and stems off.
K here is what I did. Took blender placed enough berries in it to fill half way then topped off with sugar. Liquefied and did this until I went through all ingredients. Simple? yeah smart? idk thats why im here
It now sitting in a sterilized container in the basement (its cool down there) covered with a towel and then with a metal lid (stainless steel container)
I went up to the local wine store and got myself some wyeast for sweet mead. They are now closed and in the morning plan on going there to say something but the yeast is 6 months beyond its use date its a year old
so its sat for 4 hours now and nothing has happened to the packet (smack pack)
Wrong way to start? Problems or ideas on how to make it work if I did it wrong. For some reason as a kid I remember using the wood stove to boil most the fruit wines I made but I didn’t boil anything this time. And yes I have 1 bottle of that youthful wine I made back then
anyways someone tell me I did this rite please should of read more on it and the more I read the more I get confused. Some stuff says I did it rite where other stuff says I should of added this and added that and then other stuff says I did it completely wrong and its just going to be a waist.
k long winded enough. I do not have a hydrometer or understand the theory behind it.
Thanks for anyone that made it this far for the reading specially with bad grammar and spelling
