MAIZE WINE

 

Ingredients:

1 1⁄2 lb. crushed maize

3 1⁄2 lb. Demerara sugar

4 sweet oranges

1 gallon water

1 lb. raisins

1 lemon

Yeast; yeast nutrient

 

Method:

Despite the amount of sugar, this will make a medium wine, and there are many

similar recipes which advocate up to as much as even 4 1⁄2 lb. sugar, so if you prefer a

sweet wine you can well exceed the normal 3 1⁄2 lb. limit in this case. It is a help to soak

the maize overnight in some of the water to soften it, and then, when you come to make

your wine, run it through a coarse mincer, together with the raisins. Peel the lemon and

oranges, being careful to miss the white pith, and put the rinds into a crock with the sugar,

maize, raisins, and the juice of the fruits. Pour over the ingredients the water, which need

be only hot (not boiling) add one crushed Campden tablet, and stir well to dissolve it and

the sugar. Allow the liquor to cool to 70 degrees F., then add the yeast and yeast nutrient

and keep the crock in a warm place, closely covered, for 10 days, stirring well each day.

Then strain into fermenting jar or bottle and fit fermentation trap.
