We once made wine with apricots and totally forgot about it for about 6 years. It was well sealed and when opened it, WOW it tasted like apricot schnapps!
Everyone loved it! I followed this method using blackberry and plum and it came out fantastic, although it never bubbled furiously, at some point I tasted it and it was good, so I took out the fruit and put it in the fridge.

Terrific stuff! But my second batch I made with grapes and plum, and I did get the super yeasty bloom and many days of crazy bubbling. Can anyone tell me what might have gone wrong and how to avoid it for future batches? Did I stop the process too early? Too late? What is the fine line between wine and vinegar? Some would say the difference between wine and vinegar is a matter of taste!
But if yours has gone vinegary, then yes, you left it too long — the yeasts ate up all the sugars and after that, it went acidic. One of the factors of wild fermentation is that it is a little un predictable in terms of timeframe —. Thanks Kirsten!

Maybe it is just a matter of taste. Will it continue to ferment a bit in the fridge? It would be interesting to see if the flavor mellows somewhat…. We were trying this with yeast and storing it in an old freezer that was being used for an outdoor storage cabinet. A bear came and tore the door off the freezer and stole the gallon of hooch Can anyone tell me if the plums need to be sliced and pitted or if the whole fruit goes into the mix?
Any idea how this would work with tropical fruits? Thanks for this recipe. Can I use a crockpot to ferment in, or does it need to be a glass container? Hi, I have attempted this wine after a large wild blackberry forage.
About the Ingredients
It has been doing quite well but yesterday I was bedridden with a fever and so it was not stirred! It has been really hot and so when I went to taste it today, it had a slight vinegar taste. Not wanting to waste it I decided to strain out the berries. Now it is strained it does not taste as vinegary but is still fizzing, did I strain too soon?!
This is the first ferment I have ever done. How do I know if I have made wine as opposed to fermented juice?! Thanks x. Can you do this with tropical fruits like paw paw? Curious about what brand of essential oils I prefer? Recipe Rating:.
