I'm a feeling a 25l batch of something coming on for the weekend . A TC of sorts . Need to peruse the shelves of Asda tomorrow I think for inspiration - never did throw a rhubarb one on so feeling that. Did you ever find any rhubarb juice that's suitable ?

Noticed you all went with raisins or sultanas. I must admit that I like it cold like without vinosity, a good refreshing drink, bit like liptons ice tea with alcohol

Just done my first tea wine.
10 aldi berry fruits.
3 Yorkshire tea in mug.
1 lemon peel and juice.
500g sultanas. Simmered for 1 hr.
1kg sugar dissolved after berry fruit tea bags removed from 1 litre of water.
1 tsp pectolace
1 tsp yeast nutrient
1 tsp youngs super wine yeast

Will be strong. Came at 1.140 og.
Might end up a dessert wine.

I did't take one mate but that's bang on. Sugar for that amount of raisins is about 340g according to my book which says the SG at start should be around 1.030

When we add in sugar at next step and ferment out we should have wine about 14%

That's good to know I got it bang on. What is the next step when the sugar goes in?
