The Wine Making Process

Step 1 : Fermentation
(approx. 30 minutes)

Mix wine juice and other ingredients, such as bentonite, oak chips or grape skins in a primary fermenting bucket. Learn to read a hydrometer measuring the sugar level of the juice which determines the finished alcohol potential. Add yeast.

Step 2 : Stabilizing and Clearing
(approx. 30 minutes)

Two weeks later. (Some kits require an extra time.) Transfer the wine into a secondary container - glass carboy. Add stabilizer to stop the yeast from further fermentation. Then, add the clarifying agent to clear the wine, and remove suspended particles

Step 3 : Polish Rack
(approx. 15 minutes)

Transfer wine off of the sediment and get it ready to bottle.

Step 4 : Bottling & Corking
(approx. 90 minutes)

One week later your wine will be ready to bottle. Fill, cork, label and shrink wrap the bottles. Take your wine home and enjoy the fermented fruits of your labor!
