Now that my carrot wine has been bottled, I’m going to do this parsnip wine:


It obviously advises adding sugar (I think I’m going to need roughly a kilo, given that the parsnips will be quite sweet) , but I’m not sure whether to add granulated sugar, brewing sugar, or a mixture of both. I’m not really a fan of sweet wines, so would welcome any advice or suggestions. I don’t want it to turn out so dry that it makes my teeth itch, but I don’t want it sweet either!

Thanks in advance,

Gaz

After stabilising the wine and before clearing it, you can adjust the sweetness by adding something like Splenda.

Personally, I usually add a dash of Cassis or Blackcurrant Hi-juice to a dry red or rosé wine, so for a Parsnip Wine I would probably add a dash of Peach Cordial.

Enjoy!

Thank you, that’s really interesting. I’d never even considered using anything such as cordial.
