So apparently a food blogger in New Jersey came up with a recipe that actually makes drinkable almost good wine! I can imagine college dorms with an instant pot giving this a try...
Make your own wine....
Grape Juice (64oz bottle)
1 cup of sugar (granulated)
1 packet Lalvin Red Wine Yeast
Instant Pot with Yogurt Function
Clear Packing Tape
1. Sanitise the Instant pot with a tablespoon of bleach and one gallon of hot water. Add the mix for 30 seconds, pour out and dry with a clean towel.
2. Open the bottle of grape juice, pour out one cup and use the funnel to add a cup of sugar. Replace the cap and shake vigorously to dissolve the sugar.
3. Add the packet of red wine yeast, replace cap and shake lightly.
4. Pour the juice from the bottle into your Instant Pot inner pot liner along with the extra cup of juice and hold on to the plastic bottle.
5. Close and lock the lid of your Instant Pot. Press the Yogurt button, and then press less. The Less heat on the Yogurt function will keep the heat stead around 80 degrees fahrenheit. Do not close the vent.
6. Run the timer for a total of 24 hours a day for 48 hours, alternating opening and closing the lid vent every six to eight hours to allow carbon dioxide to escape.
7. After 48 hours transfer the picture back into the plastic bottle and screw the lid on about half way to allow carbon dioxide to get out.
8. Secure the plastic cap on the bottle with the clear packing tape. Place a piece of tape across, and then place a piece of tape around the neck to keep the tape in place to create a venting area for the carbon dioxide to release from the bottle.
9. After eight to ten days the bubbling should have died down, meaning it's ready to drink but you can leave it for up to a month.
