homemade wine in Turkey?

Following my previous thread about Mandalinas (type of orange) Bob suggested that I made some wine, great but living in Turkey I do not have all the ingredients, ie grape tannin, wine yeast etc. So has anyone found alternatives or know if it is possible to aquire these things in Turkey????

Re: homemade wine in Turkey?

I think a `general purpose` yeast would be ok for wine making if you cant get wine yeast.
But use granule stuff not fresh. Would some grape juice maybe cover for the tannin?
Failing that a handful of raisins or a teaspoon of used tea leaves or a cup of very strong tea.

Re: homemade wine in Turkey?

I'm looking forward to my Sloe Gin, Raspberry Gin, Raspberry Vodka, and Blackberry Brandy. Should be ready for Xmas.
I'm not much of a whisky drinker so have started to use it on making my Baileys Irish Cream - tastes better than the real thing.

Re: homemade wine in Turkey?

What are you going to make it in? I'm sure I've never seen a demi john or any of the associated bits and bobs needed here

Re: homemade wine in Turkey?

When we first came over to Turkey we used to get wine in flagons and I still have some and I might even have bought a demijohn with me, hopefully. I do have an airlock so off we go. With Juco's advice I might well be having a go at orange wine.

Re: homemade wine in Turkey?

And if you are stuck for an airlock, try this, seal as best you can at the cap to stop air getting in.

Nothing to stop you making it in 2-3 litre plastic bottles or an empty water bottle and use the airlock above. Plastic not the best glass is better but we are having a `blue peter` day so anything goes.

Re: homemade wine in Turkey?

Hey what a great idea for a business in Bodrum we see every year Turkish people rent a shop and open up as a market , phone shop ect only to fail in 4 to 6 months because in the same sokak there are another 5 shops doing the same thing But with the price of drink going up lets get the Turks into Home Brew

Re: homemade wine in Turkey?

The ingredients are abundent, I brought a lot of the equipment over with me, but the key to succesful home wine making is sterilisation. Don't do this properly and you will end up with a sour tasting vinegar.

So, I would be really happy for advice on sterilising equipment. I didn't want to bring a big bag of white sodium metabisulphate powder to Turkey with me (I thought it would excite the customs far too much). When I have asked in chemists I have been offered tiny jars of a purple liquid which somehow doesn't look right. Any suggestions?
