    First go at a wow lack of grape juice

    Try 3 x Welches Grape, 2 x Tropicana mixed berry and 2 x Beet It Beetroot juice. Makes 15 Litres of a deep dark red wine with a hint of Beetroot. A family favourite. I also substitute 750 grms if the sugar for 750 no of honey

    Cellar 7 Pinot Grecio

    Carrot Wine

    Didn’t have much of a preconceived idea of how it would taste. It is seeet and citrusy at the moment and a bit milky but I have a good feeling on this one

    Well, 10 days in and going well. Took the raisins and wheat out after a week. Added two lots of sugar syrup, 300 grms dissolved in 1 ltr water each time. Think I’ll let it run it’s course now and transfer to Demi johns in a week or so. Enough here for 4 Demi johns
