We prepare homemade wine from strawberries
Prepare a pre-purchased glass bottle and a stopper with a discharge tube. If you want to close more homemade wine from strawberries-increase the number of ingredients in the same proportions.
- We will sort through the strawberries, removing the spoiled berries and thoroughly wash all the berries, removing the leaves. Let the strawberries drain.
- In a specially prepared bowl (preferably plastic), we will manually mash the berries to a puree state. Forget about the meat grinder, this process should not be done with metal objects.
- Sugar should be dissolved in warm water and combined with strawberry puree.
- Pour the mixture into a bottle and add the raisins. The bottle must be filled 2/3 full, so that there is little room for the fermentation process. Now shake the bottle well.
- Leave a bottle of homemade strawberry wine at a temperature of 22° to 24°, then the mixture will actively ferment for an average of 3 to 5 days.
- The liquid is carefully drained into a clean bottle. The gruel must be squeezed out with a gauze or put on a sieve, and the juice drained into a bottle.
- The container is closed with a stopper with a special tube. The end of this special tube should be lowered into a jar of water. Thus, carbon dioxide will escape from the bottle through the tube, and oxygen will not get inside. If you do not install a drain pipe, then we will not get homemade strawberry wine, but vinegar.
- During fermentation, the temperature in the bottle will rise. So that the yeast does not peroxide, we recommend that the container be taken out in a cool place, which does not receive light. There we will leave our strawberry wine until the end of the cycle. After at least 20 to 40 days, the carbon dioxide will no longer be released from the wine, and the yeast will settle to the bottom.
- The wine must be carefully drained into a sterile-clean bottle using a siphon or a soft thin tube. The container must be filled to the top so that the cork displaces the wine.
- We will put the wine poured into a bottle in the basement and leave it in peace for 4 weeks. During this time, the wine will again precipitate.
- After 4 weeks, we again pour the wine into a clean bottle, and after a month, pour the finished product into bottles.
