Make wine in 2 days

That’s the claim of Spike Your Juice. We’re going to find out if it works. For $10 usd, you get an airlock that fits a 64 oz bottle of grape juice, and some packets of the wine yeast.

I bought some Welches Concord Grape, which always seemed to me to be unfinished wine anyway. It has to be 100% juice, and at least 20 grams of (non-corn) sugar per serving. Supposedly, the yeast strain takes 48 hours to make the juice into a fizzy, sweet wine. Waiting longer to refrigerate it increases the alcohol, and makes for a drier wine.

Instant winery. I don’t think I’ll be getting any French Oak overtones from the plastic bottle fermenter. As a longtime beer brewer, I was intrigued about this idea when I first read about Spike Your Juice online.
I notice the box says you must be 21 to purchase, but all I needed was a credit card. Hm. Kids, don’t try this at home. Anyway, will keep you informed of the progress.
