Wine

12 Jul

drink wine – it’s classy. make wine – you’re awesome.

So, awhile back the boy and I decided to make some tomato wine. I know, it sounds gross, but do not judge until you have tasted. It is sweet, tastes nothing at all like tomato, and will make you confess to crimes you didn’t commit it’s so strong. Tomato wine is not a wine to sip all lady like from a long stemmed glass. tomato wine is what you pour into a mason jar and pass around to everyone around a bonfire. Or in the limo full of bridesmaids and groomsmen.

I decided I wanted to make a wine that could actually be sipped from a long stemmed wineglass if I wanted to…but I wanted something rather simple but slightly more complicated since according to the boy tomato wine can be made in a toilet (ours was not. if it was it would have saved us alot of money on fermenting buckets and carboys!) So canned pineapple it was!

This wine takes 3-6 months to be ready to sip on. I plan on letting mine age at least another 6 months after we bottle it. This is post one to document the wine making process.

pineapple wine fermenting in the bucket. the bag you see is a straining bag to make life easier when it’s time to transfer it…the brown stuff? raisins for extra color and body.

horrible photo. take that iPhone. pineapple wine racked for the first time into the carboy. it looks more like orange juice right now, but that will change.

Stay Tuned for more updates. If it’s good, i’ll post the recipe!
