For those of us on low-carb/low-sugar diets, it's such a headache trying to find drinkable wines and ciders. Thankfully, it’s simple and easy to make wines & ciders with brewsy with 1-3 grams of sugar per glass. Here’s how:

  1. Decide how much wine/cider you are trying to make and the nutrition facts of your juice. for a half-gallon of grape juice (8 fl oz servings), there are about 36-38 total grams of sugar per serving (varies based on brand).  
  2. Use the Sweetness Calculator on the ‚ÄúDRY‚ÄĚ setting (10% as sweet as your juice) to determine how much sugar to add and juice to remove. This will¬†allow your wine to have 3.6-3.8 g per 8 fl oz. since wine glasses are 5 fl oz, you will have 2.25 g - 2.38 g sugar¬†per glass (3.6 * (5/8) = 2.25).
  • NOTE: It is important that you add sugar when making a keto recipe¬†because¬†our yeast will eat all the sugar in your juice and your wine will have no flavor. The¬†added sugar cancels out with¬†yeast enough so that there about¬†2 grams of sugar per serving.
  • Open your brewsy bag and pour the contents in. Seal your juice again and shake well.¬† Add your 'hello' sticker to your juice and make sure to write down the date and time.
  • Replace your juice cap with your airlock (see video here), add water to 'fill line', and leave in a dark and warm place (75-77 degree F) for three days. Cover with a towel if necessary for darkness and/or keeping warm. Save the juice cap!¬†¬†
  • After 3 days, move to the fridge for 48 hours. Optional: Remove the airlock and replace it with the original cap, but *not* tightened onto the juice container. Instead, leave it loosely on top.
  • After 48 hours in the fridge, your yeast will have fallen to the bottom of your container. (optional) You can now carefully pour your wine off of the sediment into a secondary container for bottling. You may find that sediment will build up again, and your wine might need to be poured off ('racked') once more. Note: This sediment is completely safe to drink if accidentally consumed.¬†
  • Enjoy! Your wine will continue to improve with age.
