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.
7 ½ Pounds
Pasteur Red Yeast
First time using real grapes, we crushed ½ cold and made juice out of the other half by heating them
Still a work in progress, tasted in December and it still has a high acid factor
