Pumpkin Wine II - the Activation

Have now added Yeast to the pumpkin mixture. The Bucket of yellow-orange liquid has been relocated to the warmest room in the house. We are waiting for the yeast to do its magic- I'm too excited, I can't wait.

Pumpkin Wine I - the Prep

Today I start my adventures in Wine brewing - Pumpkin Wine. I'm roughly following this recipe but with minor modifications and it should produce ~ 18 L of wine!


I've 3kilos of Pumpkin so I've scaled the recipe accordingly and I'm boiling the pumpkin till its soft,mashing then adding the sugar moving to the fermentation bucket adding pectine and leaving overnight

Hope it goes well
