## <center>_WHAT'S IN THE BOX?_</CENTER> ##
______

Many of you know I have been slipping out of my normal _shell_ and starting to implement new skills and advance my li'l homestead more every day.

One skill, or technique, I have had an interest in this past year was fermenting. I have read posts about fermented honey garlic and other herbal-like concoctions and, of course, this piqued my interest EVEN MORE!

So, last week hubby gave me the _thumbs-up_.. and without any further encouragement, I _RAN_ with it. I ordered my _tools_ and supplies and they were delivered yesterday. So today I bundled up and headed out to do some quick errands in the FREEZING cold _AND_ snow flurries- **_what ever happened to the old saying, it's too cold to snow? Well, they were wrong!_**

## Fermenting ##
____
>(of a substance) undergo fermentation.
"the drink had fermented, turning some of the juice into alcohol" 

# <center>YES! I am making homemade wine!</center> #
______
Homemade _Dago Red Wine_! At hubby's request, after all,  he is 100% Sicilian so *_what other wine would he want_*?

Now before you get all _YAY! Look what she's doing now!_ on me... let me tell you, I *cheated* a little. I bought a wine-making kit. It has EVERY item and container I would need to make a gallon of homemade wine.

_Baby, steps here_

## Onto The Process ##
_____


![2.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmdQRk1jTQMFVoMGW2H8AVh6TG9C73waXdaErdapEY7kys/2.jpg)
<center>_Wash, clean and remove every stem from 6-lbs of red grapes_</center>


![4.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmUGTZ3yYeUA2LMEFGfZTSZYQ6Vpo132p6kNLvEEXKUsEF/4.jpg)
<center>_Put all clean grapes in the mesh bag then add to the first 1-gallon bucket/fermenting pail and start squishing the juice out_</center>


![7.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmYrFR5fifePcRwLo6S61pdpyZeaomU9RgDD889Ej9n1YM/7.jpg)
<center>_Tie off the mesh bag keeping the pulp and grapes inside, following instructions on wine-making kit and add water, sugar and the required powders from the kit_</center>



![5.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmbEjQWz6RngAuRJ9jxK4EjxBGcwS5bTYHesSvPUtLNeyS/5.jpg)
<center>_Cover, loosely, with lid and let sit for 24-hours. Then I will add the yeast and every day I will squeeze the mesh bag and stir_</center>

When all is said and done, the wine process will take about two months, so near or around the first week of March, I can serve my hubby up a glass of homemade _Dago Red Wine_ with his heart-healthy dinner.

# <center> So there you have it, not only am I learning a new skill (fermenting), but I am ALSO very proud of myself for taking a new leap into a new DIY territory</center> #

## I will be keeping a photo diary of the process as it progresses so when the wine is complete I can share my adventure into fermenting! ##

Good luck. Hopefully it turns out great. Iโ€™m not into the whole wine thing but props to you for trying something new. New year new skills. I like it!!  We should all try something new outside our normal box. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I myself don't drink alcohol at all. I think may last sip of any alcohol was back in 2001... or 2002?

I am making it for my husband and potentially for homemade gifts for others next year.
Just have been wanting to learn a new skill, and this one seemed perfect to start with.

Woot woot! Fermenting is so fun. We made our first batch of wine 4 years ago now, and since then I've done kombucha, water kefir, milk kefir, coconut kefir, yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles, carrots, salsa, siima, elderberry wine, ginger bug, sourdough, beet kvass, rejuvalac... Ummm... Surely more! Haha! It's addictive like steemit :)

Well, this is only the beginning for me. I figure,I'll get _comfy_ with this... then start venturing off a little more in the fermenting realm!

I may have to call on your periodically... so be READY!

Yes, I think so too. I've been wanting to _experiment_ with fermenting and my husband has been watching old reruns of the TV show _Moonshiners_ and he said last week... "I wonder if any of my cousins have grandpa's Dago Red wine recipe"... and we just went with it!

**Side note: _I got him hooked on the TV show and sent him subliminal messages- lol.. so now he thinks it was ALL his idea_... shhhhh!**

Itโ€™s perfectly fine to take baby steps! Sometimes, thatโ€™s the only way to get things done. I think it would be really neat to make my own wine, but I donโ€™t know if Iโ€™d have the patience. I canโ€™t even get a sourdough starter to turn out. Hope it turns out for you and canโ€™t wait to see the progress!

I've never had luck with sourdough starters either; so you're not alone there.

I'll keep you posted here over the next few weeks and months!

Oh man, you've really gone down the rabbit hole now lol.  Home-brewing is really great, if I may, I'd like to offer a couple suggestions.  
Please for the love of God, don't be me and never write anything down.  This is my biggest screw up, labels are your friend.  Many times I've cracked a bottle a year or two after bottling, mostly ciders, and saying to myself "Man this is really great, wish I remembered how I made it".&#128557;  The other thing is sanitation, very important, use a good quality sanitizer.  I use [Star San](https://www.amazon.com/Star-San-B0064O7YFA-San-32/dp/B0064O7YFA/ref=sr_1_2/142-5801892-5622841?ie=UTF8&qid=1514997607&sr=8-2&keywords=brew+sanitizer).  

All jokes aside, making your own wine, cider and beer is one of the most rewarding things you can do.  Let me know if you need any help!

Thanks for the advice! I am so OCD I will be labeling EVERYTHING!

Yes I have the Star San. A small bottle came with the kit but I bought extra.

That is funny! I'm the same way, even freezing things I think oh I'll remember later. I love fermenting. Good fun!

Did you use a yeast or are you relying on the natural stuff?  If missed it in the article sorry.

Oh how I was expecting to see a nice fermenting crock in that box for making the best sauerkraut and pickles you have ever had.   Oh how wrong I was๐Ÿ˜ณ

I don't drink alcohol either, but do enjoy making (and consuming) kombucha and kefir.

Well, hubby is Sicilian.. And I am 100% Polish so sauerkraut and pickles are more my style!
I do have my grandma's old crock in the pantry. I may have to dig it out and see if my mom has the old family recipes somewhere!

THANKS for the idea!!

I saw mom make wine very often. Seems like there was always something brewing under the kitchen sink. I helped some and once or twice got heavily involved in the making, but I never really wanted to learn. I always thought it was far too many carbs and calories for me. You just changed my mind. I might just order me one of the kits and see what happens. Might even try to actually learn it this time instead of just doing it, lol.

lol- Yeah we're not drinkers here either but the other day (we were watching the The Godfather series and my husband being the Sicilian he is) during a commerical says, "I got the taste for my grandpa's Dago wine... can you make it?"I remind you, I had him hooked on the TV show Moonshiners too! I doubled up and got him good!

He'll probably drink one glass then I'll be bottling it up for family and friends! But still.. in the end, I learned a new skill!

Yes, and a new skill that can make you very popular during the zombie invasion. People tend to actually drink more in stressful situations and swarms of zombies add a lot of tension, lol.
