Here is what I am currently doing, it is fermenting away right now so cannot vouch yet for the result!

4lbs Rhubarb
2lbs Sugar
Campden tablets
General purpose yeast
Water
Nutrient

I chopped the rhubarb, placed it in a large sealable container, poured the sugar over it and placed it in the fridge for a couple of days. This extracted the juice and left me with a heavy syrup. I then strained the syrup into a one gallon demijohn and mixed the rhubarb peices with water and strained again untill the dejohn was up to the shoulder. I then placed a crsuhed campden tablet in the must and left for 24 hours under airlock. After this I then added the yeast and a quarter tsp of nutrient and placed under airlock again.

This is where I am at right now, and I plan to check tonight to see if it has finished yet.

I have recently done the same except

not added the camdem tablets yet and Im making a second syrup from the rhubarb for a second lot of wine.

One problem I have is getting it to start fermenting
