Hi Eagle, no it doesn't taste like oranges, tastes like white wine!!!!  I usually make mine from the cheap orange juice from the supermarket, being financially embarrassed at the moment!!!!

Its not the greatest wine in the world, but at Christmas, after a couple of bottles, who cares????? lol

Made some rhubarb one year when I was into it well, that was very nice.  A Rosé wine, but the rice wine was the strongest!!!!  Like a cinzano in colour, but boy, was it powerful.  Tooks ages to clear though.

Crikey you lot all sound like alcofrolics!  How is it every thread on this forum ends up being about alcohol?

Sorry I didn't get a chance to find my wine book Hayles, had an emergency in the kitchen tonight, water dripping down the walls.

It appears there's a leak from the pipe that puts the water in the toilet cistern, but will leave myself a note for tomorrow.

Don't think I've seen a runner bean wine recipe!!!!!

And wasn't it Rugbymad who started it all milkman, talking about all his fruit vodkas???    lolol

Hi there guys, my favourite wine has to be bramble.

The strongest i ever made was rosehip, thats like a dry sherry taste, (blows your head off).

I'v got some gooseberry on the go at the moment, don't know what that will be like.

I'm going bramble and elderberry collecting this weekend with OH, she doesn't know yet.

This is the recipe for gooseberry wine:

                            6lb of gooseberrys
                            3lb of sugar
                            1 tsp of yeast neutrient
                            1 tsp of brewers yeast
                            1 tsp of pectic enzime
                            4 ltr of water aprox

1. Wash and crush the gooseberrys, place in suitable sized bucket.
2. Then pour on the water, stir three times daily for three days.
3. Strain the liquid through a siev into a demijon, then add sugar.
4. Mix thoroughly until all the sugar has disolved, then add the rest of the ingredients.
5. Fit airlock and leave until fermentation has stopped.
6. Rack off when clear, then rack again 3 months later.
7. Bottle or drink :lol:
