Step by Step guide to make wine at home from grapes. I have just sampled my first bottle after leaving it to mature for 10 months. It is the best wine that I have ever made. (Independently confirmed by my wife!)
Springtime means loads of new rhubarb, especially if you have it growing in the garden. If you're looking for something unusual to try with it, have a look at this recipe for making delicious sweet Rhubarb Wine.
Mead or honey wine as it is sometimes known is pretty much made in the same way as wine (which is actually very simple to do), except you use honey in place of grapes or other fruit.

incredibly cheap homemade "wine". Heavy to move around with and you may need some time in one place to make. But, even if you don't drink, it can be a valuable barter item to obtain fresh food or other depleted supplies.
