Default Making wine in one week?

I know it is not possible when you see this as a title until and unless you come to know that it is possible. Like, some people dont prefer homemade wine as it is not that safe but, it is not like that. The method shows that the wine cane be made within 7 days and not more. All it needs to require is proper alcohol content (i.e. ethanol).

I would like to know is there any recipe for making fast wine in the time span of 7 days?? and if yes then what are the steps for it.

Not gonna happen.
Now if the primary is done in a week that does not mean the wine is drinkable.
Technically it is wine once alcohol has replaced the sugars.

Ohhh you high-brow wine makers are such doubters. If the lad wants wine in 7 days, he's gettin wine in 7 days (8 actually). The recipe and process in detail is available at this link. Enjoy the fruits of your labor.
WINE IN 8 DAYS

Wine Kitz stores in Canada have been selling a 7-day accelerator pack. (Not sure if it is still available, as I have no real interest in it.) It is designed to work with kits, but probably could be used with non-kit wines. Although clearing a non-kit wine might take longer. Not sure about US availablility.

I personally think that making many kits in the right conditions (esp warm temperatures), and the right procedures could be done in 2 weeks to bottling.

BUT, and I emphasize BUT, that doesn't mean that the wine is ready to drink then. But that won't stop people from drinking it (or kill them or make them sick - unless they drink too much).

That accelerator is othing but Turbo Yeast Im pretty sure and Ive used that for another purpose, it does work supper fast and canalso reach abv's of about 22% but man does it leave a taste with it also. I would never use it again! Can you make wine in 7-8 days, yes but it aint going to be clear. You can typiacally ferm most most in that time frame but it will just be finishing fermenting and not even begin to clear.

Liquor Quik also produces an accelerator - AcceleVIN - which contains " a special blend of EC -1118 wine yeast mixed with 3 different nutrient salts and vitamins and minerals " . It also contains clearing agents and when you use all this with the kit yeast and clearing agents you purportedly get fermentation done in 5 days and clearing in 2 days. Ready to bottle after 7 days!
It is recommended for low end kits and fruit kits and does say that the wine is ready to drink but will improve with age.
I haven't used one but may try it out of curiosity the next time I make a mist kit.

I taste my fruit wines every evening when I stir them, and I have had ferment done in 7 days.........drinkable.........questionable for sure......interesting how the wine goes from sweet to almost sour

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder or Taste in this instance

I think if I was hard pressed for a bottle of wine with holiday dinner, The corner store sells Boons Farm that would taste better than a 1 week wine. Not trying to slam anyone, but been there-done that. Buy the cheap stuff for dinner and let the good stuff age.
