Notes

  • The ginger added in the wine is crushed and do not grind it. If you grind ginger in your wine making process, wine wont be clear. So keep in mind to crush the ginger.
  • This recipe is done in 7 days so it is must to use the sprouted whole wheat than the whole wheat.
  • If you are using whole wheat it will take a lot of time to ferment.
  • If using glass jar instead of stone crock then store it away from sunlight.
  • Lemon Juice is added to increase acidity, complement a specific flavor and it also gives a “fresh” flavor.
