When I first saw this 1 minute wine recipe, I was a bit dubious… But here’s the thing – I have quite a bit of experience of making homemade wines, beers and meads (not sure what that says about me!), but this 1 minute wine recipe is genius in its use of supermarket supplies and I can see no reason why it won’t produce very drinkable wines.
The only two speciality items you need are an airlock (to stop the fermenting wine from exploding, whilst stopping bacteria from entering) and some champagne yeast (you can try standard yeast, but it won’t be half as strong or taste as good). You can get both of these from a local home brewing shop or Amazon for around $5 and the airlock can be reused. If you are really cutting costs, apparently a balloon can be fixed to the top of the bottle and used as an airlock, just be sure to prick it with a needle to let the gas out.
The finished wine costs around $1.50 per 750ml (standard wine bottle size). If you can make a drinkable wine for that price, you are laughing!
Redneck Wine Glasses – the redneck wine glasses are optional, but if you simply must have them, you can get them here from Amazon!
