Homemade Carrot Wine

Homemade wine – the love on 21-day winemaking continues. The second one in the winemaking process is homemade carrot wine. This time, I was a little confident as our Mandarin orange wine had been a huge success. The results turned out really good. Carrot wine is really boozy with a rich color and a strong punch.




Actually, I planned to post a vegetable upma today. But I changed my mind since my friend, Teena, asked for the homemade wine (carrot) recipe. Since I was lazy to write down the recipe two times and (also) I don’t want to disappoint you, I decided to post it here. Cheers to you Teena with a boozy carrot wine recipe :), this post on homemade wine happened so quickly because of you.

Homemade Carrot Wine

You can age the carrot wine for 3 more weeks if you want a strong punch. The hardest part in winemaking is the waiting period, 3-weeks!!!!. Since we can’t wait for 3 more weeks, we didn’t age it more. And that was fine for us.

Happy Cooking

    Is there a max on the time you can leave this to ferment? I’m just wondering how soon we can start making this for holiday gifts.

    • Strain it after 21 days.After that you can keep it to ferment for as long as you want. Aging makes the wine more alcoholic and the wine will start to reduce the color and becomes claer. Hope this helps. Thank you Jaime for stopping by. Happy wine making.

    Going to makethis soon. My questions are;
    1) I don’t have a super large glass jar, I have three 64oz glass jars. Would it be possible to use those?
    2) I have red bulger in place of cracked wheat would this be ok?

    • You can divide it into two jars, I think. Or you can cut down the recipe. I can’t say anything about using bulgur. But you can try skipping the cracked wheat.

  • Cecil

    What kind of yeast do you use for the wine recipes?

    • Yeast turns sugar into alcohol. I used normal bread making active dry yeast in the recipe. But wine yeast is also available which will give a high alcohol content. Hope this helps Cecil.

    What is cracked wheat, dalia? Please mention Hindi/Bengali name if possible or post a picture. Thanks, S Basu

    After I drank this I got real dizzy and felt really weird. I couldnt talk right and kept falling down when I tried to stand up. I also got really sick and had a massive headache for 2 days. What did I do wrong? Do you think maybe some weird bacteria or mould got into it?

    • Sorry to hear that. The most important part to take care in wine making at home is clean utensils. Otherwise it’s all a waste of time. I never had that problem. As you said may be a mould or it could be the quantity you had. Hope you are ok. Take care.

    Need help on below queries:
    1: What is the quantity Ratio of Sugar and yeast on ingredients i-e on 2 kg carrot or 3 kgs etc.
    2: Can we Put it in clean sterilized Plastic Jar for fermentation.
    3: Can we make it from carrot Juice.
    Regards
    Jimmy

    • Hi Jimmy, The sugar and yeast ratio depends on a lot of things like how sweet is the ingredient you are using. Some ingredients don’t even need yeast at all for wine making.
      Please don’t use plastic jars for winemaking.
      You can make carrot juice to make wine, but it will be good if you use a boiled juice. This may prevent it from forming mould or any bad bacteria.
      Thank you
