I was looking at a Apple Concentrate Wine recipe today and it called for ¼ tsp Tannin. I was not smart enough to order any when I ordered my stuff. Is there a handy substitute available in most pantries?
I made a 1 gallon mead recipe and it called for tannin by steeping a very strong cup of black tea. I think this is more of a "to tase" method. The author said it was how they did it before you could buy tannin specifically.
Do not used the parfumed teas like fruit teas or spice teas.
Use the regular teas. Black tea is preferred.
It has a lot of tannin.
Put a few bags in a cup of hot water and let it sit for
an hour or so.
Then add to the must.
