    Your recipe for White Wine seemed like that it came for a LKG school boy. I am sorry to state like this). You did not mention when to add Wheat, reason for adding Egg Shell, whether 1 tsp Yeast will suffice for 3 kg of Grape and 1 kg of Wheat, storing in bottles–Coloured bottles?. You were also mentioning that Beatroot wine can be prepared as above. I understand, Beatroot should be chopped & boiled alongwith cloves and cinnamon thoroughly and then only the cooled liquid(after filtering through a cotton cloth) will be taken to prepare the wine as in the case of grape wine.Pls try to be more serious and careful in rolling out receipes like these. Okay.

    Could you please explain the proceedure again. Like in ingrediants u mentioned wheat but u have not mentioned it in prepration. Also please tell what should i do after straining the juice, should i add remaining sugar to it or to the sediments in the jar.

    Should i save the juice in a bottle and refrigerate and mix everything together later. I heard cloves, cinnamon can be added too, is that true,if yes, quantity please. —-Thank You

    Why do we add egg shells? Is there any other jar you can use for the wine? I have some white grapes, will this recipe work for that too? Yes and the whole wheat..when does that go in and for what? Thanks for answering my questions.
