No, distillers yeast wouldn't make good wine. It has another purpose (not winemaking), so the flavor doesn't matter.

Isn't drinking alcohol illegal in Saudi Arabia? Thought it was against Muslim law.

If it were me, I'd make the liquor and then add it back to some grape juice. What are you using for fermentables? Sugar? do you have access to other things like honey? as an experiment I think I would try dates-- lots of sugar there and can be mixed with common sugar to lighten. go with a one gallon batch for trials.

yes I agree-- bread yeast would be better. Dogfish head made some "ancient Egyptian beer" and used the wild yeasts from fruit . . .

Good Luck

Yeah, I remember watching Brewmasters where Sam from DFH left out petri dishes to collect wild yeast around date palms & the like. He brewed the Egyptian Ta Henket with it. So that's a possibility...:mug:
