How to Make Homemade Wine
Using the fruit of your choice, crush the fruit with a masher or fork, any kind of utensil that will give you a smooth consistency. Put the fruit into a clean 1 gallon container.
Combine the 2 cups of sugar into 1 cup of hot water. Dissolve the sugar completely, and let this set until it cools to room temperature. After the mixture is cool, add it to the fruit and stir.
In 2 cups of warm water, dissolve the package of active yeast and mix thoroughly. As you mix, you may notice foaming. This is completely normal. Add this mixture to the fruit and sugar mixture.
Pour the other 13 cups of water into the container and stir everything together. Place a lid on this and place it in a dark, cool place for a couple of weeks to let the fermentation take place.
Once the mixture has fermented, strain it through a cheese cloth or colander to insure a smooth consistency. Pour your wine into a container, and it's ready for use! Use it yourself for a relaxing after dinner drink, or show it off when company comes.
