I’ve used this “closed fermentation” recipe to make Mexican plum wine and Texas persimmon wine with good results. Wine recipes are plentiful. If you want to experiment with different fruits and vegetables, or different sweeteners such as honey or molasses, I highly recommend reading Winemaker’s Recipe Handbook by Raymond Massaccesi.
Be sure to check with Austin Homebrew Supply or online to find the basic equipment for winemaking. Start with cheesecloth, a primary fermenter, two glass secondary fermenters, an air lock and siphon tubing. If you choose to bottle or rack your wine, you’ll also need wine bottles and corks.
