Watermelon Wine 2

#1
One large watermelon should be enough for a gallon of this wine. After all, they are composed of mostly water.

INGREDIENTS
8 cups watermelon juice
1/8 teaspoon tannin
3 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 campden tablets
1 teaspoon nutrients
2 1/2 teaspoons acid blend
1 package wine yeast
8 cups water

DIRECTIONS
Remove rind and cube the watermelon flesh. Use an electric juicer or place cubes in a nylon straining bag and crush, squeezing out the juice. Pour into the primary fermentor. Add all other ingredients except the yeast. Stir well to dissolve sugar. Let sit over night.

The next day, check the specific gravity. It should be between 1.090 and 1.100. Add yeast and mix in well. Cover primary fermentor. Stir daily for five days or until frothing stops. Put into secondary fermentor and place airlock on the bottle.

For a dry wine, Rack in three weeks and return to secondary fermentor. Rack again in three months, and every three months until 1 year old. Bottle.

For a sweet wine, rack at three weeks. Add 1/2 cup sugar dissolved in 1 cup wine. Stir gently, and place back into secondary fermentor. Repeat process every six weeks until fermentation does not restart with the addition of sugar. Rack every three months until one year old. Bottle.

Ths wine is best if you can refrain from drinking it for a year and a half from the date it was started.
