Watermelon Wine

Friday, January 06, 2006

I tried making a batch of watermelon wine a couple of years ago.  It was not this recipe.  I "juiced" the watermelon with a potatoe masher.  If  I remember right, my wine was a little thin and was later blended with a concord.

  • 1/2 gallon Watermelon Juice
  • Water
  • 1 1/2 pounds sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp Acid Blend
  • 1/8 tsp Tannin
  • 1 tsp nutrient
  • 1 Campden tablet
  • wine yeast and nutrient

Starting S.G. 1.090, acid .65

Cut melons into quarters, remove rind & seeds. Cut melon into slices. squeeze out juice into primary fermentor thru a strainer bag.put strainer bag into primary fermenter.add in all other ingredients to primary except yeast. Stir and Cover. After 24 hours add yeast.When S.G. reaches 1.040 (3-5 days) pour juice into secondary fermenter. press juice from strainer bag into secondary fermenter and discard bag. ferment as normal.
