Fig wine
« on: December 02, 2009, 10:49 »
Hi folks

I have very little experience with wine making but would like to give it a go and have recently discovered in the depths of a cupboard (about 3lb in weight) some partly fermented figs  :blush: any chance i could add liquid and any other suggested ingredients to help turn them into a passable wine

Cheers in anticipation
 :wub:

You could try this recipe http://scorpius.spaceports.com/~goodwine/figwine.htm
1 lovely hubby, 3 dogs, a bunny and 7 ex batts and a shiny new lottie!  (so far)

You're very welcome!  Used to make a fair bit of 'country wine' but not had time this year, perhaps you could try a 'tin' of something (Wilkinsons stock them) in the meantime, they only take a couple of weeks.  Would be ready to err..test? over the festive period!
Happy fermenting! ;)
