Easy As One-Two-Three
Most people would not know how to make watermelon wine but it is extremely easy—in fact, it is one
of the easiest wines to make. To begin, make sure that you have all of the winemaking equipment necessary to the
winemaking process. Next, gather the ingredients you will need specifically for making watermelon wine. These
ingredients are: 1/2 gallon Watermelon Juice, 1 Campden tablet, Water, 1/2 pound sugar, 1/8 tsp Tannin, 1 tsp
nutrient, 2 1/2 tsp Acid Blend, and wine yeast.
Begin by cutting the watermelon into quarters and removing the rind as well as all the seeds. Then
cut the watermelon into slices. Using a strainer bag, squeeze the juice from the watermelon into a primary
fermentor. (Put the strainer bag into a primary fermentor as well.) Add all the remaining ingredients to the
primary fermentor at this time, with the exception of the yeast. Stir the mixture, cover, and let it sit for 24
After 24 hours, remove the cover and add the yeast to the primary fermentor. After three to five days, pour the
juice into the secondary fermentor. Squeeze the juice in the strainer bag into the secondary fermentor, and then
discard the bag.
After this point, it is safe to continue with the normal fermentation process. Remember that this process takes
time and that it is important to have patience. The longer you allow the wine to ferment, the better it will taste.
Also remember that if you know exactly how to make watermelon wine will taste better if you let it age several
months after it is bottled.
