Supermarket Juice Wine Recipes and W
The original orange wine is a bit like Marmite some love it some don't, if you make it and don't like it do not be put off as there are many different juices you can use, Cranberry, Pomegranate and Raspberry based wines are very popular.
In the video below he uses 1 litre of orange juice and 1 litre of white grape juice, this is fine if both juices are 100% juice, supermarket Pomegranate, cranberry and many other juices are less than 50% juice so you need to add two of these to one of 100% grape juice per Demijohn (DJ).
The two videos below show you the ingredients and the method.
Don't take too much notice of the time quoted for clearing as he intended to let it clear naturally (which can take several weeks) if you use KwiK Clear or youngs Clear It it only takes 48 hours.
Some members are finding their supermarkets are not stocking White grape juice but have Red grape juice, Red grape juice goes well with apple, cranberry, pomegranate or raspberry juice.
Red grape juice does not make red wine it ends up like a shop bought RosÃ© wine.
Part 1 -
Pectolase is used to reduce the risk of pectin hazes.
Glycerine is added to improve mouth feel.
Don't top up until until you have racked (syphoned) to the second DJ and degassed your wine, you need a bit of space when shaking the DJ to get rid of the CO2.
When racking to the second DJ he says it doesn't matter if a little sediment gets through as you will probably be re-racking again, there is no need to rack to a third DJ as your wine will be crystal clear after you have added finings to the second DJ.
