Winemaking

Parent Category: Wine and Champagne
Winemaking or vinification is the making of wine from some sort of fruit or produce. All questions about the process, ingredients, equipment and history can be found here.
Tannin occurs naturally and helps preserve wine. When it is too strong (as in some red wines from France) the wines have to be aged for a long period of time to become drinkable.
Answerbelow 50 F is too low, and above 140 F is too high. 80 to 90 F is perfect*Yeast cannot die below 50 F. If that where true then we would not be able to freeze unbaked bread dough and that is something I do on a regular basis therefore the low temp must be lower than freezing.around 70 celcius,...
Fermentation is a part of the processes called viticulture, which includes everything from growing the grape to the time that the wine is bottled.Vinification
Malolactic fermentation is important in the process of wine making because it softens the harder, tart like lactic acid found in fermenting grape juice. Lactic acid is a fruit acid found in grapes. When this acid is fermented into this softer form (malolactic) wines are easier and more enjoyable to...
Winemakers are responsible for the blending of wines.
Placing wine in oak barrels changes its taste (giving it an oaky or woody taste).
Must refers to unfermented grape juice. It transforms into wine by process of fermentation.
There are 25.4 ounces to a bottle if you pour a 5 ounce glass the is 5. Pour a 6 ounce glass the is 4 with a little left over for the host. 6 It would be just over 6 servings if you poured a suggested 4 oz serving, but that is pretty small. A standard pour at a bar or restaurant is about 6 oz, so...
Actually you can use many fruits in winemaking (blueberries, strawberries, watermelon, etc...) as long as they contain a relatively high amount of sugar. But what is referred to as simply "wine" is usually made with just grapes while any wine made with another fruit is referred to as "fruit wine" ...
Wine contains a relatively small amount of alcohol (~11-15%). By making wine, you can then use a distiller to extract some of that alcohol by heating it and separating it, which makes a spirit (more specifically, we refer to spirits made from distilling wine as "grappa").
Malic acid in new wine will often under go a process know as malolactic fermentation. The harsher 'malic' acid in the wine is broken down by Lactic bacteria into Lactic acid and Carbon dioxide. It is usually desired in a wine that has a higher acidity level.
  Allowing yeast cells to turn sugar into grapes onto carbon dioxide and oxygen.Grapes are crushed in bins and trucked to a winery. At the winery, the crushed grapes are poured into stainless steel fermenting tanks. After this, the wine-maker usually adds yeast to the grape juice (which digests...
Sugar occurs naturally in grapes and it gets transformed into 2 things: alcohol (which we want) and CO2 (which we do not want). Yeast transforms sugar into alcohol, therefore the more sugar you have in unfermented juice, the more alcohol your wine will have after fermentation (up to a certain extent...
"Bottle shock" is the term used to describe a wine that was just bottled and hasn't opened up yet. It's a play on words in that it seems like the wine is surprised at its new surroundings and so is keeping itself closed in.
Sacchoromyces cerevisiae
The first signs of winemaking in France date back to 600 Bc: when  the Greeks founded Massalia (Marseille), they also introduced the  grapewine, although probably a wild vine already existed in France.  However, the real development of winemaking took place with the  arrival of the Romans, at...
The process of fermentation in wine turns grape juice into an alcoholic beverage. During fermentation, yeast interact with sugars in the juice to create ethanol, commonly known as ethyl alcohol, and carbon dioxide (as a by-product). In winemaking, the temperature and speed of fermentation are...
Yes. Fleischmann's is considered a bread yeast. Most wine makers prefer a "wine yeast," but any yeast will work. The fungus converts sugar to alcohol and gasses like carbon dioxide. Just make sure you let those gasses escape, and don't let oxygen in.
The science of winemaking is known as Oenology (in American English, Enology)Cheers:)VinoEnology.com
Answer . A winery.. That actual conversion of grape juice into wine occurs in a vat where yeast converts sugar to alcohol. The fermentation process is the key step in the production of all alcohol beverages.
The refuse itself is called pomace. It consists of the non-fruit parts of the grape, like the skins and stems. Fermented pomace goes by various names, such as grappa in Italy and Marc in France.
15,000 - 25,000 per year depending where they are located.
It is used to stabilize a wine to prevent it from starting the second (malolactic) fermentation. It should be used together with potassium metabisulfite to avoid producing a bad smell called "geranium smell".
Unable to obtain bank financing, the company bought crushing and fermenting equipment on 90-day terms and rented a warehouse to make its first commercial wine
Controlling nearly 40 percent of the U.S. wine market, E and J Gallo Wineries led every wine category in which it competed.
Yeast - either naturally occurring or added - is essential to change the sugar in the fruit juice to alcohol. The yeast also is necessary to develop the carbonation in bubbly wines.
Anythng that contains citric acid and sugar
Tartaric acid plays important role in the wine chemistry, by lowering the pH of fermenting must, grape juice or wine to a level where many spoilage bacteria cannot live, and acting as a preservative in combination with SO2. When you taste a wine, the tartaric acid provides some of the tartness and...
Grapes are one of the best fruits for making wine. Although all other fruits can be used, grapes provide all the necessary parts to make a sound wine. They are heavy in sugars, necessary for fermentation, have the requisite amounts of acids, to give wine its taste, and are available in quantity in...
Making wine as a hobby is simply called winemaking, but the science  of making wine is called oenology.
  Packaging. There is a difference though between dry yeast and rapid rise yeast. Dry or active dry yeast should be proofed (checked to see if still alive) first. Rapid rise yeast can be mixed with the dry ingredients. Follow the package directions.

BEERYeast anaerobically( without oxygen) ferments the sugar in wort( broken down maltose and water), producing alcohol and carbon dioxide. Hops are added to give it a bitter taste and then there's your beer!
Cult wineries are made more through the winemaker than the wine. One of the most famous cult wines is Hundred Acre. Jason Woodbridge is the winemaker and owner of the Hundred Acre portfolio. Jason's personality is considered "rogue and unyielding". This is an unusual trait in winemaking. Jason is...
Italy, France, Australia, United States, Spain, and South Africa all produce large volumes of grapes. In most years, Italy produces the most grapes for making wine.
Vodka, gin, rum, tequila, whiskey, and brandy are all types of liquor.
it involves your favourite fruit(grape, apple,etc)some yeast(to make the alcohol u will need a special yeast just say it to the saler)water and obviously suger and a good container(milk bottle works fine)
None. But wine is made from fruits.
An expert in wine making is an oenologist.
There are different places where you can buy wine making equipment online. Some of the places are midwestsupplies, winemakingsuperstore or eckraus or even on amazon.
There are many wine making stores both online and physical stores. Amazon have some very reasonably priced kits but local wine making stores can probably recommend something for your needs that you can then find elsewhere
No one knows exactly when, where, or how wine making originated. One authority has written that the earliest alcoholic beverages may have been made from berries or honey and that wine making may have originated in the wild grape regions of the Middle East. According to the Old Testament, Noah...
Beacause yeast is mainly for beer not wine
Merlot is a particular variety of grape used in the making of some red wines, especially in the producing area around Bordeaux, France. The name itself could come from a regional name for young blackbirds.
That is a matter of personal opinion.
Wine can be consumed as soon as it is released.

Yes, you can legally make wine and/or beer in most places. There is a limit to the quantity that can be made and it cannot be made for sale without a permit. Check the laws for your state, province or country.
Because unlike the missing "is" in your "Why is.." question, it is necessary for it to make sense. No fermentation = no ethanol. What is ethanol? The chemical name for alcohol. Can you imagine a drink with no tipsyness? You're probably underage then, wait till you're 18 or 21 if you live in an...

It turns the sugar in the grape juice in to alcohol. Its one of the first steps in making wine.
Different winemaking techniques give wines different lengths of life. A red wine for example may get treatments to enable it to last 20 years or more in the bottle. This bottle that they are recommending you drink it now or within 3 years has likely not undergone any such treatments and is at it's...

Nothing. Try to keep air contact to a minimum, such as when you are taking samples. Taste it. Is it sweet? Acid tasting? Does it meet your expectations for the kind wine you're making? At this time it should be full of yeast cells. Yucch! If it taste acid or astringent how much aging will it require...
Aluminum pails should not be used in winemaking as aluminum is a reactive metal. For home winemaking, the preferred pails are food grade plastic. They can be purchased at a winemaking supply store or you could make arrangements to possibly pick some up from a local restaurant before their pails...
The selection of the strain of yeast can be very important in winemaking. Different yeast strains will provide different qualities that can affect taste, odor, and alcohol percent by volume. Some yeast strains are more tolerant of higher alcohol while other strains (such as baker's yeast) will...

The place where grapes are grown is known as a Vinyard. The place where wine is made is called a winery.
The moon is always orbiting the earth, and can sometimes be seen  when the sun is rising, depending on where you are located at on  the earth.    So if you can't see the moon when the sun is "rising," it means  that it is not visible from your field of view from earth. (this  means the moon...
yeast turns the natural or added sugar in the making of a wine or a spirit into alcohol
First, is the short answer. Brandy is a spirit, distilled from either wine or fermented fruit mash. Most brandies are aged in wood. in wood. Now, for the long version. The process starts by taking freshly picked grapes and they are taken to be pressed. The grape is pressed allowing the juice to be...
Frog's Leap Winery was created in 1981.
Yeast is the microbe used to make wine. It is a type of fungus.
  You probably mean yeast, not peast. Yeast is an organism which consumes sugars and as a byproduct creates alcohol(ethanol). So in wine making, the yeast converts the sugars in the grape juice into alcohol.
Wine can be made from dandelion and almost any other plant. Though some may be poisonous.
