It is quite difficult to find blackberry wine in stores. Therefore, many people make such a drink at home. Those who once made blackberry wine make it every year. It tastes great and color. Translucent, slightly tart drink leaves no one indifferent. Plus, it only gets better over time. Everyone can make such a wine. To do this, you can use not only homemade blackberries, but also wild berries. The main thing is to follow the cooking technology. Let's take a look at how homemade blackberry wine is made.
If you get acquainted with the process of making blackberry wine, then no curiosities should occur. You can make such a drink easily and at the slightest cost. Both wild and cultivated blackberries are suitable for wine. But still, it is better to use it that is grown at home. Such berries will make the taste of the drink more pronounced and bright.
A significant role is played by the place where blackberries are grown. The berries that grow in a sunny area give the wine a sweeter flavor. In addition, they are more juicy and larger. Wherever the berry grows, it is necessary to choose only ripe blackberries.
Attention! After rain, berries cannot be picked. All living bacteria are washed off from it, and yeast will have to be added so that the drink begins to ferment.
For the same reason, berries for wine are never washed. If the reaction is not as violent as you would like or you need to speed up the fermentation process, you can add regular raisins to the wine during the preparation process. To make wine from washed blackberries, you will have to add special wine yeast. Also for this, they use a self-prepared wine sourdough.
The sourdough is prepared from the following ingredients:
- 200 grams of unwashed raspberries (can be replaced with white currants);
- 50 grams of granulated sugar;
- 50 grams of water;
Dissolve all the necessary sugar in water. This mixture should be poured over pre-mashed raspberries. The mass is placed in a warm place for 2 days. After that, the raspberries are squeezed out of the juice and re-fill the pulp with water. The raspberries are again placed in a warm place for 2 days. The berries are re-squeezed and combined with the previous portion of juice. This will be the leaven for our wine.
Important! Dessert and semi-sweet wine is most delicious from blackberries.
Yeast-Free Blackberry Wine Recipe
To make blackberry wine at home, we need:
- fresh blackberries (unwashed) - 3 kilograms;
- granulated sugar - 2 kilograms;
- water - 3 liters.
- First, you need to boil the syrup from water (3 liters) and granulated sugar (1 kilogram). The liquid is brought to a boil and cooled to a temperature of about 60 ° C.
- The berries are sorted out and rubbed well with a fork. Then it is poured with syrup and covered with a cloth. The container with wine is placed in a dark, warm place away from direct sunlight. The air temperature must be at least 20 ° C. Otherwise, the blackberries will not ferment.
- Twice a day, the mass should be mixed with a wooden stick. In this case, you need to lower the pulp to the bottom.
- After a week, the juice is poured into a clean bottle. The pulp must be thoroughly squeezed out, and the resulting liquid is mixed with sugar (500 grams) and also poured into a bottle. This is done so that the berry does not turn sour and mold.
- The filled bottle is covered with a rubber glove. It is necessary to make a hole in it with a needle. It is much more convenient to use a water seal for this.
- After four days, it is necessary to lower the tube into the bottle, and with its help pour about half a liter of wine into a clean container.
- All the remaining sugar is poured into this amount of liquid, mixed thoroughly until completely dissolved and poured back into the bottle.
- The bottle is closed again with a glove or a water seal.
- After a week, the wine will stop actively fermenting. The glove will drop slightly and the odor trap will no longer gurgle. At this point, a period of "quiet" fermentation begins. This can take several weeks.
- When the wine brightens, and a decent amount of sediment accumulates at the bottom, it means that the fermentation process is over. Now you can use a straw to pour clean wine into another container. In this case, you must not move the bottle so that the sediment does not rise up again. Then the wine is filtered and poured into glass bottles.
- The bottles are tightly closed and transferred to a place with a temperature of 16 - 19 ° C.
Attention! Bottles should be stored horizontally.
This wine only gets better with age. It can stand in your cellar for up to 5 years. This drink has a sweet-sour taste and a light tart aftertaste. Every year the astringency goes away and the wine becomes sweeter. The maximum strength of the drink is about 12 degrees. It will probably be easier to find a recipe.
Homemade Blackberry and Raisin Wine Recipe
Now consider an equally simple recipe for blackberry wine at home. To prepare a noble drink, we need:
- 2 kilograms of blackberries;
- 1 kilogram of granulated sugar;
- 1 liter of water;
- 50 grams of raisins.
Wine is prepared at home as follows:
- The berries must be sorted out and grated with a fork or potato crush. Then the berry mass is covered with granulated sugar (400 grams), all the prepared raisins and a liter of water are added. Cover the container with gauze.
- Twice a day, the gauze is raised and the berry mass is mixed.
- When active fermentation begins, which will be accompanied by a sour smell, hissing and foam, squeeze all the juice under a press.
- 300 grams of granulated sugar is added to this juice, and everything is poured into a prepared bottle. Then you can make a water seal for the bottle yourself. For this, the container is covered with a plastic lid. A hole is made in it so that the tube can fit into it. The joints must be sealed, and the other end of the tube should be lowered into a jar of water. Through this tube, carbon dioxide will be released, which is released during the fermentation process. In this case, the bottle must not be completely filled so that there is room for fermentation in it.
- After 7 days, you will need to pour out a small amount of juice, dilute the remaining sugar in it and pour the mixture back into the bottle. The container is again closed with a water seal.
- The wine will be fully ready in a month. By that time, the fermentation process will no longer be active. The drink will brighten noticeably, and all the sediment will sink to the bottom. After that, the wine is drained using a straw, filtered and poured into glass bottles.
Attention! Wine prepared according to this recipe will be stronger (from 11 to 14 degrees).
