Ok so i know a few members have allotments etc and many people enjoy growing their own fruit and veg, but what do you guys do with any excess fruit you may have? We harvested roughly 5 Kilos or rhubarb from our allotment this year and as you can imagine that's a lot of fruit to use, some of it is frozen (but that takes up space) and some gets used in crumbles. I've recently decided to get back into home brewing after several years out of the game. For my first batch i decided to give Rhubarb Wine a go... 2.5 Kilos or chopped and frozen Rhubarb 2 Kilos of Sugar (Another option would be to use half the sugar and top up with Grape Juice Concentrate) Zest of 1 lemon Camden Tablets Yeast Nutrient Wine Yeast So i sterilised all my equipment prior to starting. Added my part defrosted Rhubarb into my brew bucket along with Sugar and the lemon zest. I crushed 2 camden tablets and sprinkled these on top before giving everything a good mix. I left the bucket for 3 days in a warm room (giving it a little mix every 24 hours allowing the sugar to extract as much juice as possible). Once enough juice was extracted I again sterilised my equipment along with a straining bag and a potato ricer. I poured the contents into a second brew bucket through the straining bag. once the Rhubarb was separated I used my potato ricer to extract as much juice as possible from the left overs. This gave me just over half of what i needed to make the 4.5 Litres needed. I boiled a kettle and topped up to the desired level. Once it had cooled to roughly 30 degrees I checked the ABV (came out approximately 13% once adjustments had been made for temperature). Once everything had cooled sufficiently I added the yeast nutrient and Yeast, put a lid on the bucket and popped in my bubbler. That was about 3 days ago and I'm happy to say its been bubbling like a trooper meaning the fermentation process is going well. Ill give it until Tuesday, test the ABV again before transferring it into a Demijohn to continue the process. Thats where I am up to so far, I'm interested to hear what you guys have on the go/any recipes you fancy sharing?
