After bottling 3 batches last week [2 Chokecherry] .....Now having empty carboys....Figured....Why Not???? Another Chokecherry Wine.
Same old recipe.....Different batch....
8 QUARTS JUICE [22# STEAMED EXTRACTED CHOKECHERRIES]
2 BOTTLES WINEXPERT RED GRAPE CONCENTRATE
6 1/2 CAMPDEN TABLETS
4 tsp LIQUID TANNIN
5 tsp ACID BLEND
4 oz AMERICAN OAK CHIPS [TOASTED]
2 VANILLA BEANS
S.G. 1.087 water to 6½ gallons
3 tsp PECTIC ENZYME
3 tsp YEAST ENERGIZER
6 tsp YEAST NUTRIENT
LALVIN RC-212 YEAST
Use pretty much the same recipe each time...almost know it by heart....don't change it too much.
ChokeCherry Wine is a staple around here....
I had kept a 4 liter jug out from the last bottling to consume at Thanksgiving...It was gone and the other bottles of wine were almost untouched...So, it is the favorite of the neighbors too.....
Life is Good!!!!
