The Patience of Making Wine

The second batch of honey wine

We live in an instant gratification world and making wine, whether it be from honey or grapes, goes against this in every way!

When you are making your own mead or wine you learn the lesson of patience. You can't just make it then enjoy it. You have to let the yeast ferment and do it's own thing, in it's own time.

So how can you possibly handle this slow process of wine making?

One of the things you can do is to start new batches! And this is what I am engaged in doing. The picture above shows two batches of Mead. the bottle on the right is the first batch and the plastic jug on the left is the second batch!

Now, I am still going to have to wait for quite a while for this stuff to age but at least I am keeping busy and learning more about the process of making mead.

I have more batches coming so when the first batch is finally ready for bottling the subsequent batches will soon be ready too. So soon enough there will be plenty of work to keep me busy and there will always be a new batch ready for bottling. At least thats the plan!

Addendum to this page

Patience will pay off and pay off quite well. Take a look at this batch of mead after 6 weeks of patient waiting:

Fermenting Mead

It isn't yet ready to drink although it is drinkable. But notice how it has clarified almost like magic into a wine with a beautiful color and texture.
