Kahlua

7th on the list of summer wines-

using the lees from Grog, I will start;

Kahlua wine.                8/1/10

  • lees from Grog- including cinnamon sticks
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 apple
  • 1 orange -squeezed
  • 2 vanilla beans
  • 2# brown sugar
  • 2# white sugar
  • coffee- 1 gallon
  • water to top to 2 gallons
  • 1 tsp. pectic enzymes

SG- 1.07

8/25/10- Sg. -.999

12/6/10 – I went looking in my cellar for this wine, I had not seen it in a while, It was pushed to the rear.

It is clear, a maple syrup color, slightly sweet and needs some acid correction.

I will be racking it soon adding campden and seeing if I can get to lower the acid a bit.

so far- the coffee/vanilla flavors are spot on. If I can get the acid balanced- I may add a touch of glycerin to give it some more body.
