This is my cheap and easy wine. Basically in 45 seconds you will have wine fermenting, its cheap, delicious, and you can make it into any flavor. I can say that I can turn water into wine. Just keep in mind if you make water wine, use distilled water, you don’t want bacteria in your wine, you will get sick.
Your bottle of wine will cost about $3.00, one of my favorite juices to use is a peach tea that you can find at Dollar Tree. The wine yeast is very affordable and one packet can make 5 bottles.
Make Cheap and Easy Wine
Easy Homemade Wine
- 1.5 cups of sugar (if doing distilled water, add 2 cups of sugar instead of 1.5 cups)
- 1/2 TSP of yeast (I recommend wine yeast, it will make your wine much stronger)
- 64 oz Bottle of 100% juice or juice concentrate, or a gallon of distilled water.
- Brown paper bag
Grab a 2 cup measuring cup and empty 2 cups out of the bottle of juice, drink it. Then add the sugar and yeast and then shake for about 45 seconds. Now here comes the most important part, after you shake the bottle unscrew the cap enough so that when you lightly squeeze the bottle the cap flutters a little bit. My husband learned what happens when you keep the cap tight on the bottle, just ask the huge dent in my ceiling. The bottles need to be in a warm and dark spot, I recommend placing the bottles on top of your fridge and cover them with the brown paper bags. Finally, all it takes about 21 days to be finished, it will be done when there is no more bubbles in the juice.
This is a really good starter kit to make wine, it ends up making you 4 gallons of fruit wine includes the wine yeast as well. There is some really good flavors.
If you have children, please remember to label the bottle and put the bottle somewhere they can’t reach. It can be confusing for a young kid because it looks like juice. So please remember to label the bottles and put them up high. Also don’t forget to put the date on the bottle, that way you know to watch for 21 days.
When the bubbles are gone you can tighten the cap and store your wine. So if you leave the cover loose your or your wine will turn to vinegar. Yuck. It will be around 15% alcohol content.
This is the yeast I recommend, it will make your wine a much higher alcohol content then just using regular yeast. When you use wine makers yeast it makes your wine between 14-16%! Regular yeast just makes it 5% alcohol. So follow the link to get your own wine makers yeast. https://ebay.to/2PR52hH
If you want to be able to test the alcohol content in your wine, this is what I use.3PCS Hydrometer Alcohol Meter Tester Measure Wine Liquor With Thermometer 606993654840 | eBay
Make your friends jealous of you delicious and inexpensive wine. Tip: add some frozen fruits to your wine to add extra flavor and have a treat when your finished your glass!
