Help With Welches Grape Juice Wine
Posted 25 April 2010 - 05:53 PM
Welch's Grape Juice Wine
6 gal or 12 - 64oz Welch's 100% grape Juice
7.5 Or 8 lbs granulated sugar
6 tsp acid blend
3 tsp pectic enzyme
6 tsp yeast nutrient
make 6 gallon
Going to mash up a couple of bananas and add them to the mix.
Not sure how many?
Starting specific gravity should be about 1.098 for 13.4% potential alcohol.
Any suggestions would be great or if someone got a recipe they have that came out great.

You don't need bananas for this, but I think they'll add a little complexity to the wine, a good thing. Use between 1 and 6, your call. Make sure they're ripened some, still pleasant to eat but not green at all.
If it were mine, I'd also add a little tannin, maybe a quarter to three quarters teaspoon, not too much.

You could do 1 banana per gallon of wine... or a little less... make sure you don't add sugar until you find out the SG... or you'll have a high alcohol mess.
I'm also a big fan of adding bananas in pretty much anything. It adds body and complexity. Not much, not enough for you to actually taste the bananas.

Not a fine dining wine, but it goes great in warm weather on the patio!
