    I want to make 7 litres of apricot wine; How many kilograms of apricot and how much water do I need?

    I would greatly appreciate it if you kindly give me some suggestions.

    Did you ever make the apricot wine?

    I used a recipe from a Winemakers Recipe Handbook that went like this:

    Apricots 2.5#
    Water 7 pints
    Sugar 2#
    Acid Blend 1 1/4 tsp
    Pectin Enz 1 tsp
    Tannin 1/4 tsp
    Energizer 1/2 tsp
    Campden 1 tablet
    Yeast EC-1118

    Starting S.G. 1.085-1.09

    They recommend a fermentation bag.

    You will have to figure out the volume. I had 50 pounds to start with from my own trees.

    Problem I had was getting it to clear maybe because I didn’t have a bag large enough for that volume. You have to rack a lot and you lose a lot.
