Jars of wine on the kitchen counter
I have my dandelion wine fermenting in a jar on the kitchen counter. It has been at it for two days now. I decided not to follow a recipe and set out with a combination of many. It should be interesting to see what I get. I am going to let it brew for seven days before I rack it. I want the flavor of the dandelions. It took me so long to gather and pedal all those flowers. Remember to stir the musk twice a day. If you don’t the top will get moldy. Also little fruit flies or nets carry a bacteria that turns wine into vinegar, so keep your jar covered with a fine clothe. I fastened the clothe with an elastic of an old pair of panty hose around my jar. When I finish this one, I am going to make the honey wine. Our house came with a wine cellar. It is built on the north side of our courtyard wall. It would take a lot of wine to fill it up.
