Cleaning clear bottles for my Rhubarb. Should be ready to bottle it in a week or two. Hope to take a ride and hit some wineries this afternoon.

Just waved good-bye to my first attempt at wine as it disappeared down the drain. :( BUT...my 2nd attempt, using the info I gained here, is looking classic! :r

Which wine did you dump and why?
:ot:
This was supposed to be plum wine. You know, purple, clear, etc.?

In my ignorance, I followed this "recipe":
1 pound fruit
1 pound sugar
1 oz yeast
(All x4)
Pasteurize fruit and sugar, add yeast.

What I ended up with was 4 gallons of yeast sorbet. Dumping it was merciful.

Depends on what kind of plums you use and if you let them pulp ferment. Did you ferment on the skins?

we all dump wine sometime..

Plum isn't the easiest wine for a first wine..

I made molasses/treacle wine once..

massive/ unsalveagable/ stinky..eggysmelling horrible stuff I ever made..

apparently adding energiser would have saved it..

( I'm not convinced)
