For some reason or the other, health or general preference, there are occasions whereby we might just need to stick to Sugar Free wine, yes one does need sugar for the fermentation of Yeast which converts it into alcohol and carbon dioxide, but the secret to making Sugar Free Wine is to let the Yeast suck up all the sugar till it is bone dry. This way we are left with a wine that is Sugar-free but the question is how do we achieve this?
Well, keep reading while I work you through the step-by-step guide on how to make sugar-free wine.
Firstly, you have to make sure the Grapes are as ripe as possible, meaning they should be dark and almost mushy, please note that if they are not very ripe the yeast won’t be able to suck up all the sugar, meaning the wine will contain much sugar making the wine sweet.
The next step is, you need to add yeast to the Grape Must (the unfermented juice of the grapes), also note that you will want to use a lot of Yeast which is more than required for fermentation because we want the Yeast to suck up all the Sugar present, this process will take at least two weeks.
Once the fermentation process is complete, you will need to stabilize the wine, how can I stabilize the wine? this process is being done by adding sulfur dioxide which will kill the Yeast because obviously the fermentation process is completed and you don’t want Yeast to still be present in the wine so you won’t have inconsistency in the flavour of the wine.
Lastly is the bottling process, Before I forget, always make sure you taste the wine to ensure it is Sugar-free or you hire professionals as many companies offer this service and it will give you peace of mind knowing that your wine is completely sugar-free.
