A lot of people ask me questions about wine making and it frustrates me that I can’t give them a specific answer. The reason is because the answers are not always the same.

Example, “how many apples or how much grapes does it take to make wine?” Or, “how much sugar do I add to my wine?” “What all equipment do I need to make wine?

In this video, I use the leftover apple cider from our cider smash to make 3 gallons of apple/pear wine and at the same time, attempt to answer some of these questions. I also talk a little about acidity in wine, fermenting fruit and how the hydrometer can tell you how much sugar to add to your wine/must.
