    After watching some Youtube videos like this I decided to give it a shot for fun. I don't expect great quality, but It should at least be drinkable, we'll see.

    Cliffs:

    - Buy some 100% grape juice (with no additives)
    - Pour out about 30% from the container to make room
    - Add a pack of yeast from the supermarket
    - Add a few cups of sugar (food for the yeast)
    - Put the cap on, but don't screw it all the way
    - Wait about 2 weeks... Wine


    Any Sherbros make their own wine?

    Sounds like some serious hobo homebrew you got goin' on there.

    Enjoy your vision while it lasts, you're basically making turpentine.

    I think the more sugar you use ups the alcohol content - be careful.

    It's not really dangerous... the amount of alcohol ends up being limited by the yeast. Most strains will usually die out once it reaches around 10% ABV give or take. If you use wine or champagne yeast strains, you may be able to achieve higher ABV but nothing higher than around 18% or so.

    The danger only really comes when people try to distill stuff. Instead of ethanol alcohol (which is what the yeast produces naturally), methanol can get end up getting in there too during lousy distillation processes... which can cause blindness and death.

    Yea, it's awful, but the stuff certainly does do the trick.

    I always wondered... if you can get the ingredients to make the wine smuggled in jail, is it really much harder to smuggle in the wine itself?

    I stole and I robbed and I kidnapped the Presidents son and held him for ransom
    And I never got caught either
     
  16. Ive had some homebrews that were pretty decent. I've never had homemade wine that wasn't skunky/nasty no matter who made it. That tells me all I need to know about what's easier to make ( well anyway).

    That will make horrific wine.

    There is no 2-week turnaround on wine, and you don't use yeast from the supermarket to ferment it.

    I've made wine in the past but prefer to brew/drink beer.

    My dad started making wine about 10 years ago, started with some pretty basic stuff and wasn't the greatest.

    He now makes wine, beer, rum, vodka... pretty much everything under the sun.

    Funny thing is my parents never drink, and as an only child some day I am going to inherit a retarded amount of alcoholic beverages. Hopefully I don't drink myself to death.
