I started off making wine in 2 liter bottles from frozen breakfast drink concentrates you can get at any grocery. It’s kinda like cooking, you mix up all your ingredients, but instead of putting it in the oven, you set it aside for a week or 2. Put it in the ‘fridge for a day or 2 to get the left over yeast to drop out, then drink.
Here a link to show how I did it:
You’ll probably want to get your yeast at a brew shop near you since young lively yeast is the key to a good ferment. It only costs about $1 a package, and a pack will make about a dozen 2 liter bottles worth of wine!
Once you have a taste of success (literally!), it’s easy to play around with different juices (apple, grape, white grape raspberry, cranberry, all kinds of stuff available out there!) and different sweeteners to make delicious drinks. A couple people I know that started out making wine this way have gone on to more sophisticated methods of wine making, but still brew a small batch this way once in a while.
My current favorite recipe is white grape and apple juice with honey and brown sugar added. If you try something and it doesn’t work out, you only have about $1.50 invested in the batch (about 2 regular wine bottles worth), so it’s no great loss and you get a chance to learn what doesn’t work for your taste buds.
With a low start up cost and such a high chance of success, you should try it if you are AT ALL interested. You’ll probably like it! :)
