Then to a 5 gallon carboy pictured here.
Finally yesterday we finished with this!
|This 5 gallon batch made 26 bottles.|
Isn't that a lovely color? Strawberry wine can have an unappealing brown color, but not this stuff. We used 10 quarts of strawberries to make this batch, and the redness stayed strong.
Of course we had to sample it. It's very tasty! We have read that it's good to let strawberry wine go for 2 years. I'm sure that's a great idea, but holy cow! That would mean June of 2013. There's no hope, because we tasted it. We're like a mountain lion that got a taste for the rancher's cattle. The only way to keep us away now is to shoot us!
