Grandma's Moonshine Grape Wine Recipe


2 - 12 oz. cans frozen grape juice

3 1/2 cups of white granulated sugar

1/3 cake of yeast (Fleishmann's is best)

a large Balloon and some strong string one Gallon Jug

First, set the grape juice out to thaw, until slushy. Next, mix the
sugar thoroughly in with the grape juice. Pour the sugar and juice, into the
gallon jug.

Dissolve the yeast in a cup of lukewarm* water and add to the juice
mixture in the gallon jug. (*If water is too warm, it will kill the active
ingredient in the yeast that causes fermentation.)

Mix everything thoroughly. Now add just enough lukewarm water to fill
the gallon jug up to about 2 inches below the neck. When this is done, place
the balloon over the top of neck and secure tightly with string.

Note! This must be an air tight fit... If you have followed all
directions carefully, the balloon will soon start to expand with the gas,
caused by the fermentation. Store the mixture in a cool (but not cold) area,
60 to 75 degrees is ideal, for a period of from 3 to 6 weeks.

Check the balloon every other day. If the balloon expands too large,
untie and allow the gas to escape and then retie, but be sure to retie
tightly to make it air tight again. When the balloon ceases to expand, the
wine is done.

NOTICE - Do not bottle the wine before it is
done. Working wine (fermenting) can explode a bottle from the gas pressure of

Strain your wine with a cheese cloth or a tea towel and pour into a bottle,
using a snap-on type of cap or use a cork. Store bottles on their sides in a
cool, dark place. All that's left now to do, is ENJOY YOURSELF.
