3-4 weeks!!! The wine is now in the demi john and is fermenting nicely. Lots of bubbles coming up through the airlock.
It is still very very cloudy – and more of a brown than a rose at the moment, but fingers crossed. In a few weeks time I’ll be putting in some stuff to clear it and then finally bottling it.
It will be at this stage whether I decide I am going to make another batch of the plum wine, I’ll have tasted it and sweetend to the right levels – so if it isn’t horrendous I’ll probably get started straight away on the next batch. Once I’ve used up all the plums I’ll give one of the nice red wine kits a go 🙂
