wine making

Not much left outside for me to make wine with now, either. The marked down produce at the grocery store is always interesting, however.

Glad to see some activity here. I just tried making wine with butternut squash and pumpkin. Didn't get much juice out of them so have a pot of pulp draining with peptic enzyme and bread yeast in it. Still not getting much breakdown of the pulp.

I am planning to make a one gallon batch of pumpkin/winter squash wine this fall, if I have the time. I will be using Hopi Black squash for this, since it's our favourite! I would have frozen the raw squash first to get more juice out of it. I always freeze everything before I make wine with it. I will also bring it to a boil before using it and let it steep in the boiling water for 36-48 hours, then make the wine. Because I don't use sulphite, the boiling is important but is also extracts a lot of the flavour from the raw material, as does the freezing.

Let me konw how it turns out. This will be my first pumpkin wine! I have made a lot of experimental wines this year.
