Hippy juice recipe please

I am on a roll now and next on my to do list is a tea bag wine.
I am after a good recipe and any hints and tips please.

Fruit teabag wine... AKA Hippy Juice.

Posted elsewhere by Moley, once upon a time. But as it says below, he got it somewhere else originally anyway...


Borrowed from another forum and tweaked:
1 Box (20) Fruit 'Tea Bags'
2 litres Grape Juice
2lbs sugar (or thereabouts)
1tsp Citric Acid
1/2tsp Grape Tannin
GP Yeast & Nutrient
I've used 1 box Twinings Cranberry, Raspberry & Elderflower bags and Sainsbury's 100% Pure Pressed Red Grape Juice (not from concentrate, no preservatives, 3 for £2) but you could use any fruit infusions bags and red or white grape juice as appropriate.
Infuse the bags for 30 minutes in 2 pints boiling water.
Boil 2lbs sugar (or thereabouts) in 1 pint water.
I measured the SG of the grape juice at 1.068 and calculated that 1lb 12ozs sugar would give an OG of 1.110, and have read somewhere that boiling the sugar inverts it and makes it more fermentable.
Wring the bags out as best you can without splitting them and pour infusion liquor and sugar syrup into a bucket, add grape juice, allow to cool, add Citric, Tannin, Nutrient and Yeast and let it rip. After the initial whoosh has subsided, pour into a DJ and make up to 1 gallon.
Dead easy, and I cost that at around £3.50 per gallon or 60p a bottle at around 13% ABV.

I'm new to this too. Decided to have a go at this the day after after I started a plum wine- keen and enthusiastic and all that! Followed the recipe posted by Moley and made into a 1gallon DJ. It's now been fermenting in there for about three days now and is still bubbling away quite vigorously. When should I rack it into a second DJ? Then, once racked, how long do I leave it in the secondary DJ and will I need to add anything else to it (such as a stabiliser, or findings)- if I do, at what point would I do this?

Thanks :D

Blimey 3 days is nowt, it's barely got going.
People (who've read certain books...) tend to rack too much.
Give it at least another 2 weeks, then only rack if it's done (unlikely) or there's massive amounts of sediment you want it shifting off
The amount of sugar needed to make wine takes the yeast a while to eat. Few are done in under a month. Some of my fruit wines have taken 4.

Cheers oldbloke. Have read a few books before discovering the forums so you may be right!

On our previous forum we had occasional threads which included discussions about racking, and we more or less decided you only do it when you have to. Which is (a) loads of sediment to get rid of (b) when it's done (c) maybe again after it's done if it's taking ages to clear
And, also, you only really need to Campden when racking if there's no live yeast to deal with any oxygen you introduce. ie only (b) and (c), and in (b) you'd use potassium sorbate as well to stabilise.

Oh, and maybe (a-) something in the original ingredients you don't want in there for too long. But that's a rarity

The 5 litre water bottles you get in the supermarket work well with a hole for your airlock and grommet in the lid, cheaper than a glass demijohn.

So, after following old blokes advice, I waited until it stopped fermenting and racked with added stabiliser and campden. The gallon is currently sitting in a DJ with an airlock. Can I just leave it alone for a couple of months and then bottle? Will I need to degas it or will leaving it in a DJ for a couple of months allow it to degas naturally? In around two months time my plan was to filter it (along with a couple of gallons of plum wine) and bottle then.

My multipurpose yeast is real old and not looked after. I have have some of the others in the freezer.
