1 gallon container or bottle
1 brewsy bag
approximately 1 gallon of grape juice of your choice (or other fruit juice)
1 cup sugar
4 ounces of brewsy wine
4 ounces of soda water
lime or orange wheel, for garnish (optional)
for your wine
for your cocktail
to make your wine
if not fermenting in the store bought juice container, pour one gallon of juice into your personal 1 gallon container.
use the sweetness calculator to determine how much sugar to add and juice to remove. removing juice is necessary to give the wine enough room to breathe without bubbling over while fermenting.
once calculated, mix in appropriate amount of sugar and remove appropriate amount of juice for headroom.
add brewsy bag.
apply the airlock and leave the container somewhere dark and warm (75-77°F is best) for 3 days.
move to the fridge for 48 hours.
after 48 hours in the fridge, pour wine off the sediment that has gathered in the bottom of the bottle (best to pour into an extra empty bottle or large bowl, rinse out the original bottle, and then return wine to newly rinsed bottle).
store your wine in the fridge to keep chilled and fresh.
to make your cocktail
pour your wine into the chilled glass of your choice, then top off with soda water. stir gently.
garnish with orange or lime wheel, if desired.
