The peach wine is very sweet and light and the plum is more dry, red and tart.
I'll give you a brief explanation of the wine-making process, now that we have successfully made our first batch.
- Weigh out fruit, place in a knee high stocking or cheesecloth, squeeze out as much juice as possible into clean 2.5 gallon bucket. Add water.
- Weigh sugar, add to juice, stir then take out a sample and measure the specific gravity. Usually it should be around 1.10. You will need a hygrometer for this step, one came with our starter kit.
Currently we have grape wine in the glass carboy, they should be another month or so until they are ready, and muscadines are in the primary fermenting bucket.
The muscadine wine should be ready by Christmas!
