Easy Wine Making Instruction

We all have in our heads the basics of what we think needs to be done for “easy wine making instruction” time. Get some grapes, stomp them, ferment them and then it is ready made wine for the drinking. The process of making wine is so much more than that.

Without Wine Making Yeast, You Just Have Grapes

What is yeast? Scientifically it is a single celled plant, fungi. It is the real winemaker. Without yeast we will have no wine.

Wine for commercial use can be packaged in various size containers; bag in a box, tetra packs and recently there have been discussions for plastics bottles (ouch). The most traditional way to package wine is in glass bottles, from clear to assorted shades of green, yellow and brown glass.
