Your Source For Making Wine and Beer

Concord Wine

Thursday, December 08, 2005

This recipe is the first time that I used actual grapes to make wine. I picked the grapes at my bosses's father's house on an October afternoon. October 2003 was not a real good year for grapes in my area, so they were more tart then sweet. I did eventually add a couple container's of Welch's Grape Juice to the must, but that was after the original had mostly fermented. This wine ended up being an average wine.

5 Gallon



40 Pounds

Concord Grapes

7 ½ Pounds


6 Teaspoons

Yeast Nutrient

2 Packs

Pasteur Red Yeast

First time using real grapes, we crushed ½ cold and made juice out of the other half by heating them

Racked October 5, 2003 to primary fermenter

Racked October 17, 2003 and added 33 oz Welch’s Frozen Grape Juice Concentrate along with 1 cup sugar to top off

Still a work in progress, tasted in December and it still has a high acid factor
