This is my 2nd attempt to make wine. I watched a youtube video and simply went ahead. Because of Corona lockdown, I could not buy the right equipments.
Steps I took to create my white wine.
- Pressed 7 kgs of green grapes and put them in a 10kg steel container
- Since the grapes were not too sweet and I did not have the equipment to measure gravity, I added 1kg of sugar. I thought that would be enough. I did not add any yeast as the video said, that fruit already have natural yeast which will help in fermentation.
- For 8 days, everyday, I would open the container and mix the contents as shown in the youtube video.
- On the 8th day, I separated the juice and tasted it. It was way too acidic.
Can someone please help me? I do not want to pour 5 litres of grape juice down the drain :D
The hydrometer came in today
This is what the values look like after 8 days of fermentation. So if I go as per This Video, the fermentation didn't happen. The value had to go below
