    Step-by-Step Guide to Making Mulberry Wine

    Now that you have everything ready, here's a step-by-step guide to create your masterpiece:

    Step 1: Prepare the Mulberries

    Wash and remove stems from your mulberries. Place them in a mesh bag, and then place the bag inside your fermentation bucket. Crush the mulberries by hand or use a sanitized masher to release their juice.

    Step 2: Add the Sugar and Water

    Boil 1 gallon of water, then dissolve the sugar in it. Pour the sugar solution over your crushed mulberries in the fermentation bucket.

    Step 3: Add Ingredients for Fermentation

    Once your sugared water and mulberries have cooled to room temperature, add the grape tannin, acid blend, and yeast nutrient to the mixture. Stir well.

    Step 4: Add Yeast and Ferment

    Add the wine yeast to your mixture in the fermentation bucket. Stir, then attach the lid and airlock. Store in a dark, cool place and allow to ferment for one week, stirring daily.

    Step 5: Secondary Fermentation

    After a week of primary fermentation, transfer your mulberry wine to a carboy by carefully siphoning the liquid off the mulberry pulp. Attach an airlock, and let it ferment for another 4 - 6 weeks in a cool, dark place.

    Step 6: Clarify and Stabilize Your Wine

    Once fermentation is complete, use a campden tablet to clarify and stabilize your wine. Allow it to sit for about 48 hours, then carefully siphon it into a clean carboy for aging.

    Step 7: Age Your Mulberry Wine

    Allow your wine to age in the carboy for at least three months before moving on to the bottling stage.

    Step 8: Bottle and Enjoy

    Once your mulberry wine has aged, it's time to bottle it. Use a siphon to transfer your wine into clean, sanitized bottles, cork them, and then store in a cool, dark place. Depending on your taste preferences, you may want to age your wine even further (around 6 months to a year) before enjoying it.
