Marijuana wine recipe
Hits 41035 | Created 2009-07-24 | Modified 2009-07-24I met a guy who made his own cannabis wine, I asked for the recipe out of curiosity and offer it here for your interest. He said it was good, but I have no idea if it is or not.
1 gallon boiling water
4 oz (fresh) marijuana stalks, leaves, branches
4 lbs sugar (or honey for a mead-like wine)
1 orange, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
1 cup black tea
1 tsp yeast (wine rather than bakers?)
In a sterilised bucket, six pints of pour boiling water over the freshly chopped-up marijuana trim. Cover with muslin cloth, leave for several days, stirring each day with a sterile plastic spoon.
Prepare orange and lemon - remove all skin, pith, all white bits and chop remainder, put to one side.
Make a strong cup of black tea (Americans may need to use two tea bags)
Dissolve sugar in 2 pints of boiling water. Allow to cool. Add this sugar mix, orange and lemon bits, black tea and yeast to the bucket. Stir, cover again and let stand for 24 hours in a warm place.
Strain through muslin into a clean demijohn and fit an airlock.
Ferment in a warm place until there is a sediment, rack (filter off leaving sediment behind) and return to clean demijohn and fit airlock again.
Ferment in a warm place until it finishes (no more air through the lock, clear liquid), bottle as usual.
[Notes: Personally, I think this sounds like too much sugar - perhaps 3 to 3.5 lbs would be a better idea - most plant, rather than fruit or root-based, wine has less than 4 lbs of sugar
Also, if making with honey, I'm not sure if this would keep very well, as normal mead can only be kept for about a year, whereas normal wine made with sugar can be kept for several years, usually getting better over time]
