Sloe Wine

Does anyone have a recipe for Sloe wine, and if so any idea if it's nice (or drinkable)? I've managed to get loads of Sloes over the past few days and have some Sloe Gin on the go but Gin is expensive so I'm not sure I want to put another bottle on.

I have some Eldeberries in the freezer so am considering maybe mixing them up and using Krazypara's recipie for Royal Elderberry Wine if there's no good results to be had from Sloe's on their own.

Cheers! :cheers:

Somebody was here saying how good it was recently, maybe a search for 'sloe' would find it.
I accidentally put some in a mixed berry wine instead of some of the blackcurrants recently, and when I racked it it was very bitter. Hopefully that'll fade...

I'm doing an elderberry and sloe wine when I can be arsed to get the ingredients out of the freezer. It will definitely be an ager - I reckon you would do well to make a slightly sweeter wine with a less sharp ingredient blended in, banana maybe.

Thanks both - I've since found a post on another site where Sloe Wine is said to be lovely and not need much ageing. I think I can very easily get another couple of K's this weekend so maybe I'll experiment with a straight Sloe wine and a mixer with Elders

:notworthy:

I took a SG reading of my Sloe wine today and it has finished fermeting..... So I had a taste, it's quite sour and sharp so I'm going to sweeten it to medium before bottling and leaving alone for a good long while.

Fingers crossed this will improve with age :)

This still looks like purple paint, I did use Kwik Clear finings when I stablised etc at the end of last year. Anyone got any ideas on how to clear it except from keeping it cold and trying some more finings?

Cheers!

Did you add any pectolase to break down the pectin? If not, it may never clear, Add 2 teaspoons per gallon if adding it after fermentation.

Yup I added pectolase but I guess if I'm adding another dose of finings I could also add some more.... :thumb:

If you do get a grwat crop of sloes around you then make the sloe gin and wine etc but when finished strain the sloes of and make a run of wine of them its the best wine I have ever tasted alas nour sloes were very poor last year
