    • 4-5 pints of filtered water


    • Large pot for heating water
    • Large fermentation bucket with lid and airlock
    • A fine mesh bag or cheesecloth for straining

    Step-by-Step Peach Wine Making Process

    Step 1: Preparing the Peaches

    Wash the peaches thoroughly and remove any blemishes. Cut them into slices, discard the pits, and place the fruit in the fermentation bucket.

    Step 2: Creating the Must

    Add sugar to a large pot of boiling water. Stir until the sugar dissolves and pour the sugar solution over the peaches in the fermentation bucket. Allow the mixture to cool to about room temperature.

    Step 3: Adding the Additives

    Once the must has cooled, add crushed campden tablet, pectic enzyme, and acid blend. Stir well to combine.

    Step 4: Fermentation

    Sprinkle the wine yeast over the must and stir gently. Close the fermentation bucket with a lid and airlock. Allow the mixture to ferment for 5-7 days, stirring occasionally.

    Step 5: Straining and Secondary Fermentation

    After the primary fermentation, use a fine mesh bag or cheesecloth to strain the wine from the fruit, squeezing out any remaining liquid. Transfer the wine to a clean, sanitized secondary fermentor (a glass carboy or another bucket with an airlock). Allow it to ferment for another 2-3 weeks.

    Step 6: Racking and Aging

    Once the secondary fermentation is complete, use a siphon to transfer the wine to a new, sanitized container, leaving behind any sediment. Let the wine age for at least two months, racking it every few weeks to remove any accumulated sediment.

    Step 7: Bottling and Enjoying

    Finally, after the aging process is complete, use a siphon to fill wine bottles, cork them, and store them in a cool, dark place. It's recommended to let the wine bottle age for at least 2-3 months before enjoying it.
