Dandelion Wine Recipe
  • 7 cups of Dandelion petals
  • 1 lb chopped Golden Raisins
  • 2-1/2 lbs Sugar
  • 1 tsp Acid Blend 
  • 1/4 tsp Tannin 
  • 1 tsp Yeast Nutrient

Cut off or pluck petals from stems (discard all stems and green parts). Wash and drain petals set aside. Pour hot water in a primary fermenting bucket and dissolve sugar. Place petals, raisins and orange peel in a small straining bag. Tie off bag and place in the primary fermenting bucket. Allow to cool to 70 degrees and then add all other ingredients. Stir well. Stir daily for 7 days. After 7 days, gently squeeze straining bag into fermenter and discard entire bag. Transfer the liquid contents from the primarty fermenter into a gallon jug. The jug should be full if not, top up with water. Allow to sit for approx 1 month. Transfer back into primary fermenter and add 1/2 tspMetabisulphite and 1/2 tsp of potassium sorbate. Stir well for approx 5 minutes to drive off excess gas. Transfer back into clean gallon jug. Allow to sit for another month. The above recipe will yield approx 1 gallon of wine. When picking, keep away from fertilized areas and you may want to pick in a pet-free zone.
