Supermarket Juice Wine Recipes and Wurzels Orange Wine WOW

Postby Chippy_Tea » Sat Apr 05, 2014 18:55

When i first started reading threads in the home brew forums i noticed members talking about WOW which turned out to be an abbreviation for Wurzels Orange Wine, the original orange WOW is a bit like Marmite some love it some don't, i fall into the latter category, if you make it and don't like it do not be put off, there are many different juices out there and Cranberry, Pomegranate and Raspberry based WOW is very popular with members here.


This thread contains many recipes from members and myself, i have named each member who originally posted the recipe as i don't want to take all the credit, if you try one or make one up please add your recipe or comment on the one you have made to keep the thread going.

This bit is important please read in full

The WOW guide below suggests using 1 litre of orange juice and 1 litre white grape juice, i found the end result to be a bit watery so now make all my WOW variants using 2 litres of the main juice (if it is less than 50% juice) and 1 litre of either red grape juice (RGJ) or white grape juice (WGJ) if i find 100% juice i only use one litre of each as the original WOW guide suggests.
I would advise all new members to follow the WOW guide to the letter using one litre of the main juice and either one litre of white grape juice or one litre of red grape juice then alter the recipes if the finished wine is not to your taste.


Read the original Wurzels Orange Wine (WOW) how to guide here -

I will start the ball rolling -

1 tsp Tannin or a mug of strong black tea.

1 tsp Yeast (i use youngs super wine yeast compound)

1 tsp Nutrient.

Make the wine using the original method here - viewtopic.php?f=18&t=454

2 L tart cherry juice (which actually had a fair amount of grape and apple when looking at the label)
1 L white grape juice
1 tsp citric acid
1/2 tsp tannin
800g sugar
hock wine yeast
1 tsp pectolase
topped up with water

28/5/2013 Edit to add -

Gave it its first racking this morning, slightly dissapointed as I couldn't taste that much cherry, but other than that it seems like it might turn out to be quite an acceptable rose and who knows, the cherry might come through more once its had a couple of months in the bottle, it was a bit fizzy and young for me to get a proper taste :L anyway I topped it up with more WGJ (resisted temptation to use RGJ) and I expect I'll be bottling it in a week or two

So my father in law has asked for a dry white wine so I thought 5 litres of a wow variant would be perfect, this is my recipe:

1L of wgj
500ml of apple juice
500ml of co-op orange & pineapple juice (60% oj 40% pineapple)
900g sugar
Mug of Strong tea
1/2 tsp of glycerine
1/2 tsp of bentonite
1 tsp of pectolase
1tsp of yeast nutrient
1tsp of youngs super wine yeast

I forgot to take a sg reading so adding up the sugars:

98g in the oj&pine combined
172g in the wgj
900g of sugar
Total = 1170g divided by 5 = 234 which should give me a reading of around 1.086

Easy red

A gallon to start with. Recipe below. Don't know the sugar content of the RGC but I guess total sugar is about 1100g.

1 Litre Red Grape Juice (Lidl)
1 Litre Cranberry/Raspberry Juice Drink (Lidl)
250g Youngs Red Grape Concentrate
700g Sugar
1 tsp citric acid
½ tsp tannin
1 tsp Pectolase
1 tsp Nutrient
1 tsp Youngs General Purpose yeast

Dissolve sugar in about a litre of hot water, add all other ingredients, top to about 4 litres with cold water (top to 5 L after initial activity)
SG at 4 litres = 1.100 – approximated to 5 litres = 1.090
Add yeast and give a good shake. Started to work within the hour.

Sugar Contents:
Lidl RGJ = 161g
Raspb/Cranb = 126g
Youngs RGC = ???g
Sugar = 700

It is a very tasty white table wine. If you didn't know you'd not spot the pineapple, but knowing you can just get some of those tropical notes. Great mouth-feel for a WOW too.

Just bottled and tried this WOW, that I only kicked off 12 days ago and it is already lovely:

3 x 1 litre ASDA White grape juice
1 x 1 litre ASDA pure pineapple juice
1 tsp citric
1 tsp nutrient
1 tsp pectolase
1 tsp glycerol
1 tsp tannin
450 gms sugar
Lalvin all-purpose yeast
1/16 tsp sodium meta to stabilize
Fined with Bentonite ( finding that just plain old bentonite is great at clearing WOWs ).

Strawberry Ribena wine

Boil a litre of Strawberry Ribena (the concentrate version) for 15 mins to get rid of the preservatives, then when it's cool add it to a DJ, along with -
3.5 litres water,
680 grams of sugar,
juice of 1 lemon,
yeast
yeast nutrient.

Should produce about 12% abv. The 3.5 litres of water is based on using a 5 litre plastic water bottle for a DJ, but if using a glass one use 3 litres of water

Best one so far is for a rose

1.5 litre of red grape

1 litre of apple juice

750g sugar in a gallon brew.

It was *just* short of flavour though and I added a dash of strawberry Ribena when serving. I may add a teaspoon of acid if it needs it.

1ltr posh Innoccent apple juice
1ltr Pure pomegranite (POM 86% pomegranite, 14% blueberry) (£3.68 )

700 grams sugar
pectolase
tannin (tea)
citric
nutrient
Vintners CL23 yeast

WGJ and apple juice with all the usual suspects to start. Will then pitch the POM after initial ferment. I'm hopin for a good one. Bluberries and pomegranite both make nice wines. So have forked out for a posh apple juice and even posher pomegranite and blueberry. Around £6.50 all in all Fingers crossed

Wasabi posted

Just started this tonight, inspired by my recent ginger beer:

1 litre "breakfast juice" (10% grapefruit, 90% orange)
900g sugar (so total 1 kg sugars including the juice)
30g powdered ginger (about 1/3 what I used for my ginger beer, just to give it a mild gingery tang)
Water to 4.5 litres.

I'm using dry-pitched Allinson's bakers yeast again because it worked great for the ginger beer, and I'm tight! I did add Wilko yeast nutrient though (belatedly, after two hours, when I suddenly remembered!) I don't know if bakers yeast can keep working up to wine-strength but I'm about to find out! But the granules started fizzing virtually the instant they hit the water, it's very fast.

If I survive drinking last week's ginger beer I'll let you know how this orange ginger wine turns out! (Oops, forgot to do an OG reading, bit late now it's been going about 4 hours.)

Asda had a 5 for £4 deal on their chilled juices so it seemed rude not to partake.

I did; 2 litre pineapple + 1litre white grape
2 litre Cherry + 1 litre white grape
2 litre Forest fruits + 1 litre white grape

All made up with 600g sugar and made up to about 4 litres which gave an SG of 1.095 which is about right if you adjust it to 4.5 litres. I will top them up in a day or two.

Each had half a teaspoon of; pectalase, citric acid, nutrient. a teaspoon of glycerine and richies wine yeast and a cup of tea.

Mine again

1 litre Tesco Pure Exotic Juice

1 litre WGJ

700g sugar

Half a cup of black tea

1 tsp Pectolase

1 tsp Nutrient

1 tsp Youngs super wine yeast.

1 tsp Glycerine

I normally add two litres of the main juice and one of WGJ (or RGJ if making Rose) but as the Tesco Pure Exotic Juice is 100% juice i decided to just use one in each DJ.

The lava lamp effect is in full flow.

I will add a short review when it has finished.

This juice is £1 per litre at the moment.
