- 1 kg bananas
- 1 kg Sugar
- 200 grams broken wheat (dalia)
- 2 litres filtered Water (Luke warm)
You will also need:
- A glass jar with lid
- Tinted Bottles
- A dark space to store the jar.
- Peel and mash the bananas, and place it at the bottom of the glass jar.
- Add broken wheat and yeast to the mashed bananas and keep it in a dark place, covered securely.
- Once the fruits have fermented overnight, add in the sugar with the lukewarm water.
- Let that sit for another 3-4 days. You can stir the mixture occasionally.
- After a few days, carefully filter the liquid using a strainer and store it in dark tinted bottles.
Few Things to keep in mind:
- Be careful to let the air escape from the bottles you've stored, or else they will pop up on their own and will spill wine everywhere. Make sure that when you do that, don't let air from the outside to enter into the wine.
- Fill the bottle till the rim to avoid oxygenating the wine.
- Let the wine mature at least 1-2 months before you consume it.
- You can add more sugar if you like your wine sweet.
- This is how my mother makes it at home and this might not be the professional way to make it. She has been making homemade wine for many years now and we always enjoy drinking it together. She has made wines from Banana, plums, grapes, oranges, and tea. You can use the same method for all the fruits.
- Please research well before you proceed making wine at home,
- If you are below 18, please wait till your 18th birthday to enjoy some homemade wine. I do not encourage underage drinking.
