7. When ferment is complete (S.G. has reached 1.000-- after 3 weeks) siphon off sediment into clean 5 gallon glass carboy secondary. Reattach airlock.
8. To aid clearing siphon again in 2 months and again if necessary before bottling.
NOTE:If slightly sweetened wine is more to taste, at bottling add 2½ teaspoons Stabilizer, then, stir in 1¼ pounds dissolved sugar. VARIETIES:Pomegranates (Punica granatum) tolerate great heat but fruiting varieties need deep watering. Available in tree or shrub form, 1½ to 12 feet high. The two popular varieties to try are: "Wonderful", 10' high, large orange-red flowers followed by reddish fruit and "Sweet", a pomegranate similar to Wonderful but with sweeter, less acid fruit.
