1 gallon container or bottle
1 large pot
fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth
1 brewsy bag
approximately 1 gallon of water
10 cups of rose petals (about 10-12 roses)
1-2 pounds of sugar
if not already loose, remove rose petals from stems and rinse.
add petals to your pot, along with your sugar and water.
over high heat, heat the mixture until simmering. turn down to low heat and cover.
allow to simmer for 30 minutes or until the petals lose all their color (if using pink or red petals).
strain before moving to gallon container and let sit for about 30 minutes to reach room temperature.
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.
