    Recipe ingredients and directions:

    Successful wine making in the home is assured by following rules

    carefully.

    The first rule to follow is that of cleanliness. All utensils and

    containers should be sterile. The fruit must be sterlized too.

    If this rule is not followed, bacteria, especially those which form

    acetic acid, may cause the juice to become vinegar.

    The second rule is that fermentation must be started quickly, before

    other bacteria can get into action. Too little yeast allows acetic

    acid bacteria to work, so that enough yeast must be added to prevent

    this. Use the dehydrated yeast, two packages to each gallon of

    liquid. Soften it in lukewarm water with sugar as directed on

    package nad wait until it forms before adding it. The Brewers'

    Yeast carried in drug stores has been inactivated, but live Brewers'

    Yeast may be obtained from breweries. Use about 8 oz. (1 cup) to

    a gallon of liquid.

    The third rule is to watch that temperature! 60 degrees F. is what

    you want. Cool the sterlized juice quickly to 60 degrees F. and

    add the yeast at this temperature. the slow cooling of the fruit

    and water mass allows acetic acid bacteria to establish themselves.

    Fermentatation should take place at this heat too, an important

    factor for the best product.

    Bottle Your wine immediately upon cessation of fermentation to

    prevent contamination. Let the wine age for six months for fine

    flavor.

    To make sparkling wine or beer add a lump of sugar to each bottle

    and then cork tightly. this will form the gas, but not enough to

    "blow."
