To Make Your Wine
Get your juice ready. If you're not using the container your juice comes in, pour one gallon of grape juice into your gallon jug.
Add your sugar. Pull up the sweetness calculator, and decide how sweet you'd like your juice.
Shake well! Using the values from the sweetness calculator, pour out some juice (you can save it to backsweeten with later) and add your sugar. Then, shake it all up!
Add one full Brewsy Bag. Open your Brewsy bag and pour the contents in. Seal your juice again and shake well.
Put on the airlock. Apply the airlock, then leave your container somewhere dark and warm (75-80°F is best).
Wait 5 days, then taste-test. After 5 days, take a very small sip of your wine. Right now, the yeast haven’t been separated from your wine, so it won’t taste amazing just yet.
When you taste, taste primarily for sweetness. If it tastes dry enough for you, move on to the next step. If it still tastes too sweet, let it ferment for 3 more days, then repeat the taste-test.
Put your wine in the fridge. After 3 days, move it to the fridge for 48 hours. You can remove the airlock and set the original cap on top of your drink. Be sure not to tighten the cap!
Wait two days while your wine is in the fridge.
During this time, the cold in your fridge is forcing the solids in your wine to the bottom of the container, making it easier for you to separate them in the next step.
Take a sip! Now, you can taste your wine! Cheers!
You may love it away, but you may find it tastes harsh or a bit off. Don’t worry! That's very normal with young alcohol. It will get better and better with time.
If it tastes bitter, you can quickly fix that by making a simple syrup.
Return your wine to the fridge with a loosened cap. Unlike store-bought wine, Brewsy doesn’t have any preservatives, so it needs to stay in the fridge with a loose cap unless it is properly prepared for room temperature storage.
If you’d like to bottle your wine for storage outside of the fridge, you can find out how to do that here.
To Make Your Cocktail
Add your chilled white wine, sparkling lemonade, and lime juice to your pitcher. If using limes, juice them and add to pitcher.
Right before serving, muddle 3/4 of your mint and add to the pitcher.
Add sugar to taste, if desired. Your lemonade may be sweet enough that you don't need any!
