Requested Recipe:


"Do you have a recipe for Apple Wine made from frozen concentrate?" Sharon, location unknown


You can make apple wine from fresh apples, dried apples, applesauce, apple jelly, apple juice, apple cider, frozen apple concentrate, or combinations of the above. This recipe uses reconstituted frozen apple juice concentrate. Read the label before buying a concentrate for this recipe. I doubt that you will find "pure" apple concentrate, but you at least want to avoid frozen "cocktail" concentrates and concentrates that contain preservatives.


Bring 1 qt water to boil and stir in sugar until completely dissolved. Pour frozen apple concentrate in primary and add boiling sugar-water. Add remaining 2 qts cold water, acid blend, tannin, yeast nutrient, and crushed Campden tablet. Stir well, cover primary and set aside for 12 hours. Stir in pectic enzyme and recover primary. After additional 12 hours, add activated yeast and recover primary. Stir daily for 10 days, keeping covered. Rack into gallon secondary, top up if required and fit airlock. Rack, top up and refit sirlock every 60 days for 6 months. Stabilize, sweeten if desired and wait 2 weeks. Rack into bottles and set aside one year.
