recipe for rose wine

Rose Petal Wine Recipe -
6 pints rose petals
3 lbs / 1,350 grams sugar
2 lemons
Wine yeast and nutrient
1 gallon water

Winemaking Method: Rose Petal Wine Recipe - Wine Making Guides
Pour boiling water over the rose petals and cover and leave for 48 hours. Strain through a fine sieve and add the sugar and dissolve well and then add the lemon juice and yeast. Pour into a demijohn and fit an airlock and leave to ferment.

When fermentation has ceased, rack the wine into a clean jar and place in a cooler environment and leave for a further few months. Rack again if necessary and leave until the wine is clear and stable and then bottle.
