Wine Making

elderberry steamingWe forage in the fall for wild choke cherries, wild plums, elderberries, Concord grapes, blackberries, and have even used our own rhubarb to make our wines.  We juice them and then put them in a plastic food grade 5 gallon bucket, add water and yeast, cover with a cover that has a bubble stopper.  Then let it sit for about a month to 6 weeks! If you are a beginner, it’s better to start with a winemaking equipment kit
