Carrot Hop Wine

Fresh Carrots
Start with freshly scrubbed carrots
Chopped Carrots for Carrot Wine
Chop 3 1/2 lb
Brown Sugar for Carrot Wine
Measure 2 1/2 lbs of brown sugar
Boiling Carrots
Boil the carrots in a gallon of water until tender
Hops
Measure 1/2 ounce of dried hops
Coffee Break
Make some coffee
Coffee & Carrot Wine
Watch the carrots boil
Lauriel Stirring Carrot Wine
Stirring sugar with the boiling water until completely dissolved
Carrot Wine in Primary Fermenter
Add the carrots and hops and let steep
In a day or so we will add the yeast and let it ferment. Then on to the carboys for a few months before bottling. Maybe next year I can let you know how it tastes!

Check her out. By the way, my sudden appearance on your comment section has all to do with my sudden awareness of internet bliss. Sounds scary though.

I can't wait to see how this comes up! And I just loved your photo journey with coffee pause. So just like something I would do. I'm so glad you found my blog - it's fun to follow you!
