Grapefruit Wine

  • Grapefruit 2.25 lb
  • White grape concentrate 1.5 pints
  • Sugar 2.25 lb
  • Water 1 gallon
  • Campden Tablet 1
  • Wine yeast
  • Yeast nutrient

Squeeze the juice from the grapefruit into a fermenting bin and grate in the skins. Pour in the water and grape juice. Crush the campden tablet (as described on it's container) and add to the bin. Leave to stand for twenty four hours. Add the yeast to the fermenting bin and stir well. Leave in a warm place for six to seven days stirring regularly. Strain off the liquid through a sieve into another fermenting bin containing the sugar. Stir to dissolve the sugar and then transfer to a fermenting jar (demijohn) fitting a bung and airlock. Leave to ferment. Once the fermentation has completely finished then the wine can be transferred to bottles and corked. It is ready to drink immediately.
