Making Homemade Wine With Brewsy

Make your own homemade wine using Brewsy!

I first became acquainted with Brewsy in the fall of 2020.  I was browsing Instagram when their ad popped up.  I have always had an interest in wine making, but I thought it was a lot of work.  After reading how easy it would be with Brewsy, I immediately ordered a welcome kit & bottling kit.

A little while after I got my kit in the mail, life happened.  We got a couple foster placements in the fall & life got hectic.  I never made my wine!

Around Christmastime, I decided to finally make some wine.  I loved the thought of having homemade wine for Christmas!

It turned out so great that I made another batch! I'm taking you along the wine making process today!

At the end of this post, I'll share a special coupon code for savings on all things Brewsy!

What is Brewsy?

Brewsy is a simple wine making kit that can turn any juice into 15% ABV wine in just 5 days.

Each Brewsy Welcome Kit can make between 12-18 bottles of wine.  Once you purchase the welcome kit, you'll only need to buy refill Brewsy bags to make more wine.

In this post, I'll share my personal experience making my own wine. I followed Brewsy's starter recipe. It honestly explains everything a lot better than I can! It is extremely detailed & is a must read. My post is just a cliff notes version.

Instructions
  • Decide what type of juice you want to use
Brewsy can be made with any juice.  For this batch I used cherry juice. For my last wine, I used concord grape juice. You can use almost any kind of juice you want.

  • Calculate Sweetness
I used the Brewsy sweetness calculator to determine how sweet I wanted my wine to be.  This calculator allows you to put in the information of your juice. It then tells you how much additional sugar to add to create your wine.  It also allows you to pick what type of wine you want to make (dry through dessert wine).

I like sweet wine, so I made my choices based on that.

Once everything is put in, the sweetness calculator tells you exactly what to do to make your wine!

  • Make The Wine
To make my wine, I used a gallon container.  Using a funnel, I first put my cane sugar into the container. Then I added the cherry juice. I then put the lid on the container & gave it a shake to combine the juice & sugar. The final step is to add a Brewsy bag & give everything another shake.

After you have combined the ingredients, you put an airlock (included in the welcome kit) on top of your container!

  • Brew Time
The wine takes just 5 days to brew.

It starts off for 3 days at 75-80 degrees. The yeast in the Brewsy bag eat the cane sugar & are finished when the wine reaches 15% ABV.

Then, you move everything into the refrigerator for 2 more days. This allows the yeast to settle to the bottom of the container. After that, the wine is done!

After everything is done, it is encouraged to rack the wine. This process involves pouring out the wine into a different container, leaving the sediment from wine making behind.

The wine will only get better with age, but still needs to be refrigerated since there are no preservatives.
