How do you make wine from a Magnum wine kit?
As with all wine kits, you will need essential brewing equipment.
Brew Mart homebrew starter kits are a good buy as they contain the necessary equipment, and buying the equipment as a kit is more economical than purchasing the items separately.
OPTIONAL EXTRA ITEMS
1. A large funnel helps add things to your fermenter.
2. A trial jar to use with your hydrometer
Very important, before starting your brew
1. Be sure to read all the instructions in the kit.
2. Sterilise all your equipment.
USING YOUR HOMEBREW STARTER KIT
1. Add 5-6 litres of warm water to your cleaned and sterilised fermenter, then add the required amount of brewing sugar. Mix well until completely dissolved.
2. Add the wine juice from your chosen Magum wine kit. Rinse the wine kit out using hot water and add to the fermenter.
3. Top the fermenter up to 22.5 litres (5 gallons) using a hot and cold water mix to achieve a temperature of about 25 C. Mix well.
4. Add wine yeast/nutrient (sachet no.1) and mix well.
5. Use a lid with a grommet to seal the fermenter and add an airlock half-filled with water.
6. Leave your must to ferment at a constant temperature of between 20-25 C. Fermentation will typically take 7-8 days (a little longer if the temperature is low).
Note: Always consider the risk of a vigorous fermentation when choosing a place for the fermenter as frothing and leaks could occur.
AFTER FERMENTATION (7-10 DAYS)
7. When there is no more activity (bubbles in airlock). Check that fermentation is complete using a hydrometer to give you the specific gravity. The reading should be 998 or lower.
An alternative is to taste the wine to see that it is not too sweet. If necessary, wait another day and re-check.
8. Rack off to another sterilised fermentation vessel using a syphon tube.
9. Add the stabiliser (sachet no.2) and stir very thoroughly to remove CO2. Repeat 3-4 times, leaving an hour between each session
10. Add finings A (sachet no.3), mix well, and leave for 2-3 hours.
11. After 2-3 hours, add finings B (sachet no.4), carefully stirring to avoid disturbing any sediment.
12. Leave the wine to clear for 2-7 days, preferably in a cool place on something table height, enabling you to rack it off later without moving it.
13. After 2-7 days, when the wine is beautiful and crystal clear, syphon it directly from the fermenter to sterilised bottles and seal with corks or plastic stoppers.
That's it - your wine is now ready to drink and enjoy!
If you can leave a few bottles until a later date, you will find that they improve even more.
