Orange Juice Concentrate Wine

This is another recipe that uses store bought juice. Personally, I use 2 cans to a gallon and adjust the sugar by using a hydrometer.

Makes 1 gallon

  • one 12 oz. can 100% pure orange juice concentrate
  • 1 1/2 lb sugar
  • 1 tsp tartic acid
  • 1 tsp pectic enzyme
  • 1/4 tsp tannin
  • 1 gallon water
  • wine yeast and nutrient

Add orange juice,sugar and nutrient to 4 pints of water.
Stir to dissolve.
Dissolve tannin in a small amount of boiling water and add.
Top up with 7 pints of water,leaving lots of space in your fermenting jar.
Add pectic enzyme and yeast.
Let ferment 1 week.
Top up to full gallon.
Let ferment until finished.
You can drink this wine right away, but it improves with age.
Serve chilled.
