Cumquat Wine Home Made

Anything is possible when you master the basics of home brewing.
With 5kg fresh cumquats picked from my friend Belinda's tree, 6kg sugar, 8g fruit yeast and 15 litres of cooled boiled water I have created this amazing Cumquat Wine.


This gorgeous cumquat wine is very pleasant to drink now but of course I will see how some ages in a cool room.
It's very drinkable and at 8% ABV - alchohol content
It is the perfect summer drink.


Buon appetito, enjoy Merryn xx

  1. 5kg freshly picked cumquats would cost a fortune over here...lucky you, Merryn. The wine must taste amazing.

    1. That's interesting Angie, I just assumed cumquats were grown and were cheap everywhere. Mind you, I would like to get a hold of sassafras bark and that is incredibly expensive in Australia 8)
