Home Wine Making Spurred on by Arrival of Friends

Sometimes I think my ideas towards saving money are worth sharing just because of the turn of events. Recently long-lost friends announced they were in town and were paying us a visit. They’re wine lovers and because I have already tasted some wine made locally and it happened to be good, I decided to save money on buying bottles and make my own wine.  In making red wine for instance, it is important that the sugar content of the juice be between 18 and 25% . Less sugar and the wine is thin and sour, more and the fermentation becomes erratic and may be incomplete so that some sugar is left in the wine.

Don’t try making wine unless you have the right equipment and ingredients.  You will need to invest in a basic wine kit. This is perfect because with it you can make up to 30 bottles. Believe me, being frugal can sometimes give you lots of fun, just like this wine making hobby of mine. Delicious, friends and family can’t believe the difference, and if you follow direction carefully, you’ll get pretty good results. You’ll be able to enjoy your evening drink and not have to worry about the soaring wine prices.


So many patterns, so much yarn, so little time: story of my hooky life.
