    Ginger Wine Recipe

    If you fancy making your own ginger wine, it takes a little patience, but the results are well worth the effort.

    You will need:

    12cm root ginger

    5 litres of water

    1.4kg of sugar

    Zest and juice of 4 lemons

    500gr of raisins finely chopped

    1 sachet of white wine yeast

    Yeast nutrient

    Peel and grind the ginger. Place it in a plastic fermenting bucket along with the lemon zest, raisins and 2.5 litres of boiling water. Cover and leave to rest for a day. Then add the 2.5 litres of cooled water, sugar, lemon juice, yeast nutrient and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the yeast following the instructions on the sachet. Cover and leave it to ferment for four days.

    Sieve it using a sieve or straining bag and pour it into a demijohn using a funnel. Don’t forget to sterilise your sieve, funnel, and demijohn. Let it ferment for a few months, then rack to a fresh demijohn and leave until clear. When your ginger wine is clear you can bottle it.
