  • Hey guys, What's up? It's Alex. So welcome back. The wine-making series.

  • Today is the fifth and final

  • episode of how to make fri-fri-fri freakish wine at home using only basic equipment.

  • In this series, I'm sharing my whole experience about wine-making at home

  • from fresh grapes all the way to beautiful wine

  • And using only cheap and basic equipment.Of course along the way

  • I will share fun facts and useful tips. Whether you want to make wine, or you just want to drink it, let's be honest,

  • Remember to always act safely and responsibly

  • So listen I never thought I would say that at some point in my life, but today

  • I'm gonna be opening and tasting my own bottle of red wine

  • Hahaha, but before we get to this, we still need to check up a few steps.

  • First, I need to get rid of the last impurities and also to clarify my wine

  • It is called fining and I need to use egg white for that

  • One egg white so about 40 grams will clarify 6 gallons of wine.

  • That's 22 liters of wine. I have 5 liters, so I need about nine grams of raw egg

  • And that should immediately trigger the word

  • Salmonella in your mind

  • That's not a nice word.

  • Anyways. Do not worry because of its acidity and alcohol content wine is a pretty good

  • antiseptic and antibacterial

  • agent

  • Let it sit in the fridge for three days

  • The reason why I let it sit in the fridge instead of on shelf is because we are combining the fining with a cold stabilization.

  • That last process is here to turn tartaric acid into wine crystals in our plastic containers

  • instead of getting them in the bottles at the end

  • So the cold stabilization is over

  • Let's do a final racking you know that siphoning thing and also let's add a final dose of sulfides

  • I which have a complete calculus in the description down below, but at the end we need to add

  • 375 grams of metabisulfite

  • Be super gentle as we want to keep all the impurities, crystals and egg white bits in the previous container

  • «Oh, merde

  • Now thoroughly clean and sanitize your wine bottles

  • Fill them up, just above the bottles' shoulders

  • And then, using a manual cocker and some elbow grease I am sealing the precious beverage inside

  • add a shrinking cap and hold the bottle upside down in boiling water to secure it in place and

  • last is the labeling process

  • I've been waiting for this

  • Tasting session like I feel like all my life, so in fact

  • I should still be waiting for about three more months before tasting those as there is a final

  • stabilization going on in the bottles

  • But I think we just found out about the limits of my commitment. A man can only take so much.

  • So let's open them without further ado.

  • So I'm going to be taking this very simply

  • I'm going to be reviewing the color, the taste and the flavor. I'm not a somnelier so just expect like normal comments from me

  • If you guys enjoyed the project and the commitment then please give this video a big thumbs up and subscribe to my channel for more

  • Foodie adventure, just of the

  • Transparency

  • It's not the best obviously but I think we did a good job on this. It's almost transparent

  • To remember where we came from far far away, and now second the color. It's a nice

  • but light red with um

  • Orange-y purple-y shades inside

  • Now the smell

  • Smells a bit acidic but not too much doesn't smell like vinegar

  • Smells fruity I can feel the alcohol content in it - to the smell it's not mellow. It's more you know

  • There is some kick to it

  • So finally at the eleventh month of hard work now is the time to taste it

  • «Eh ben, putain» It's very weird cause I'm almost getting emotional

  • well

  • Definitely not the best one I had in my life., But I don't know. it's just the result of so much work

  • so much time spent

  • Okay emotions overall now from an objective point of view. Softness,

  • Freshness fruitiness. But to me the thing it's really lacking is

  • Intensity. It's like a cheap supermarket wine

  • Which is a great quality if you consider everything that could go wrong in this process, so I guess I just made a drinking wine

  • Right so I'm going to keep on sleeping on my wine, but in the meantime

  • I'm also going to give you my final five pieces of advice if you were to replicate this

  • Winemaking journey, and I will share them from the least important all the way to the most

  • crucial piece of advice so listen very carefully

  • number five make a winemaking

  • Schedule beforehand, it's really important that you don't miss important step in the journey

  • I missed a few the wine is okay. Maybe I was lucky

  • Forget a commercially available

  • Winemaking kit all the equipment or the professionals that is going to be so much easier for you afterwards?

  • I mean the winemaking process is really hard on its own the reason why I built

  • Everything was just to show you that it's possible, but if I were to do it off camera

  • I would definitely use a winemaking kit, and then the link in the description down below to a decent one

  • 3 get a proper and practical sanitizing agent

  • I was working with bleach at first which is okay because it works

  • But as soon as I got a good one like a practical one. I was able to work twice or even three times as fast

  • Number two use dedicated wine grapes. I use Black Muscat

  • Which is both a table grape and a wine grape

  • But I think that pure wine grapes are definitely better suited for that job think of Shiraz ofrMerlot or Cabernet

  • Sauvignon or Malbec for example and the one piece of advice the most important is that

  • you should be making way my wine than I did I only started with 10 kilos of grapes and

  • I ended with four bottles of wine ah I guess I'm going to cherish them very much

  • But I just wish I had made tons more like at least 10 times more, okay?

  • Maybe not 10 times 5 times, but again, that's it

  • I hope you enjoy this whole project the whole wine making journey

  • I really hope that you learned a few things along the way and that you will give it a try

  • It really is a satisfying and rewarding

  • Experience it does require a bit of effort. I'm not gonna Lie
