A nice light wine with a hint of apple. The wife request that I make this several times a year. Make sure the apple juice is 100% juice otherwise the yeast won't ferment. You will need some special equipment for this recipe. You should be able to find most of it at your local brew store or online at a brew shop. Corn sugar wine yeast sanitizer, a 5 gallon vessel that is food safe such as carboy, bottles to store the wine in, and a siphon to move the wine to the bottles, a air lock an stopper are also needed. Brown sugar can be substituted for corn sugar but it will have a lower ABV and more of a cider taste.

Ingredients

  • 5 gallons - apple juice
  • 2 pound - corn sugar
  • 1 packet - Cote Des Blanc yeast

Directions

  1. Sanitize the 5 gallon carboy, funnel and stopper
  2. pour half a gallon of the apple juice into the carboy
  3. Add 1 pound of corn sugar to the half empty gallon of apple juice and shake and add to the carboy
  4. Repeat step three with another gallon of apple juice
  5. Add the rest of the apple juice
  6. Wait one month and serve
