Coffee Wine

Making a slightly different wine this time lol, last summer I saved some used coffee grounds when we last worked on the The Bean Genie they have been in a bag in the freezer for months,
Added the grounds to some sultanas and half a bag of sugar, then added 5 litres of warm water and some yeast




After a couple of days it was bubbling away nicely


Lol after a week I transferred it to some demijohns mmm don’t it look nice


I then topped it up with some more sugar water, fresh orange juice and some red grape juice


I added a touch more yeast and left it bubbling away for a week or so, and when I tested it lol it was not very nice, I think the caffeine has super charged the yeast and it’s eaten every scrap of sugar, so I decided some summer fruits cordial would do the trick and I think it has done the trick


After a couple of weeks it the demijohns it’s cleared nicely and tastes quite nice now and lol it still has a really good kick it’s about 27% alcohol by volume šŸ˜‰

    First a massive hangover, then the gout and lastly off to rehab. If it was me I’d use it to unclog drains.
