Aids To Wine Making
Use these dried Sloes to make your own full bodied red Sloe Wine, or a flavoursome Sloe Gin. (Packager & packing may differ from that in the picture, however contents are the same). Trying this for the first time? we recommend our Country Wine Add Pack C, available from our Aids To Winemaking page in our ebay shop, for all the other ingredients required to make a 6 bottle batch of wine.
Also available in a pack of two 500gm bags for extra savings, the 500gm Dried Sloes twinpack can be found on the Aids To Winemaking Page in our Ebay Shop, together with other important aids to wine making such as yeast, yeast nutrient, pectolase, acid, tannin, stabilisers, finings etc, as well as our cost effective Country Wine Add Packs.
To Make 1 Gallon (6 bottles) Sloe Wine
Ingredients: 500gm dried sloes, 2lbs sugar, Country Wine Add Pack C.
Place the sloes into a food grade wine maker's bucket. Add half the required sugar, yeast nutrient, pectolase, tannin & acid, and 5 pints of water. Bring the must to 75F (22C) and add the yeast. Cover the bucket and allow the must to ferment for 4-5 days stirring twice a day. After 4-5 days in the bucket, add the strained wine must into a demijohn, followed by the remaining sugar and the grape concentrate, top the liquid level up to one gallon with water and close demijohn with a bung and airlock. Allow the fermentation to continue until a gravity reading of 994 or below is achieved (990 for dry wine). Once the fermentation is completed, add the stabiliser. Agitate the wine twice daily for 48 hours, and then add the finings. When the wine is clear (approximately 2 to 3 weeks) if at this stage the wine requires sweetening, transfer the clear wine into a clean demijohn, stir in sugar syrup to taste, allow to blend thoroughly, then bottle. Comprehensive instructions for this Sloe Wine available if required, please e-mail.
If you do not have our Country Wine Add Pack C, you will require grape concentrate, yeast, yeast nutrient, pectolase, tannin, acid, campden tablets, potassium sorbate & finings. All of these products can be found on the Aids To Winemaking Page in our Ebay Shop, both individually or combined together for extra savings (tip: type Country Wine Add Pack into our shop search facility for all our combined options).
To Make Sloe Gin
Ingredients; 250g Dried Sloes, 225g Caster Sugar, 1 litre Gin
Place the dried Sloes in a clean, large sterilised jar, pour in the gin, seal tightly and shake well. Store in a cool, dark cupboard and shake once a day for a week. Then shake twice a week for two months. After two months add the sugar, seal tightly and shake until the sugar is dissolved. Store for a further month, strain off the sloes, to leave you a sloe gin that will be a beautiful dark red colour and ready to drink, although it will continue to improve with age.
