Bottled my Skittles last night and OH! WOW! I can't wait to see what becomes of it once a few months have passed in the bottle. It's like alcoholic candy! SWEET!!!!
Do let us know! I'm always eager to hear about people's results.Bottled my Skittles last night and OH! WOW! I can't wait to see what becomes of it once a few months have passed in the bottle. It's like alcoholic candy! SWEET!!!!
Amylase enzyme and super-kleer will fix what ails ya.That's the plan. Just don't want to go too crazy with the enzyme if I don't have to.
I LOVE IT!!! Rainboom! LOL! I wish I woulda thought of that. All I got thus far is a Granny Smith label.Bottled and labeled the Skittles wine. Right now it is surprisingly good, takes like a semi-dry white wine with a hint of Skittles. I expected more Skittles taste, though, does it come out more over time? I shot for 14% ABV and since the wine does not taste boozy at all it sneaks up on you.
I am pleasantly surprised how well it turned out and look forward to sharing it with friends. I figure I will let it age for another month then start passing the bottles around.
Thanks for the recipe and tips everyone, it was fun to make. I think I will definitely be on the lookout for candy canes on sale after Christmas to do a candy cane wine to age for a year for the next holiday season
Since all of my wines are pony themed, this one was "Dashy's Skittle Shine... Taste The Rainboom"
Holy smokes!! I cannot wait to hear about this well age-ed vintage!I actually forgot all about my skittle wine; I have a 3 gallon carboy from two years ago
Thanks for the input, I made some a few months ago. Guess I better get busy and start emptying those bottles. It is pretty tasty right nowI did up the skittles wine back at the end of 2013. I bottled the beginning of Jan.2014.After 6 months it definitely had a taste of the fruity candy and was certainly drinkable.Yesterday I pulled a bottle out to give a taste and have to say it was pretty bad.I think when you age this wine, because of the chemicals in the candy, the fruity flavor leaves and you're left with nothing but a chemical taste.
So my take on this wine is if you do want to try making it for fun, drink early!
