You Make Your Own Wine? Hop Wine

The ingredients: 2.5# sugar, 3 oz homegrown magnum hops, 1 tsp lemon juice, .5 oz ginger, 8 oz raisins

Boil some of the sugar, all of the hops and ginger for 60 minutes. I added 1 pouch of outdated bread yeast as yeast nutriet...darn cannibals get hungry.

The boil smelled awesome!

The must. Raisins and lemon juice went in. It was left to cool, then 1 gm Montrachet yeast was pitched. I topped up with boiled and cooled water to get to 1 gallon.
