Ingredients:
- 2 large pomegranates
- 1 gallon water
- 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 packet wine yeast
- 1 teaspoon yeast nutrient

Directions:
1. Gather all ingredients.

Prepare the Pomegranate Juice:
1. Cut the pomegranates in half and juice them using a citrus juicer or by hand. Strain the juice through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any pulp or seeds.
2. Measure out 1 quart (4 cups) of fresh pomegranate juice. Set aside.

Mix the Wine Base:
1. In a large pot, combine water and sugar. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves completely.
2. Remove from heat and let the sugar water (simple syrup) cool to room temperature.

Fermentation:
1. Pour the cooled sugar water into a sanitized fermentation bucket or glass carboy.
2. Add the pomegranate juice, wine yeast, and yeast nutrient to the fermentation vessel. Stir gently to combine.

Fermentation Process:
1. Cover the fermentation vessel with an airlock or a clean cloth secured with a rubber band.
2. Place the vessel in a cool, dark place with a stable temperature (ideally around 70-75Β°F / 21-24Β°C) to ferment. Allow fermentation to proceed undisturbed for about 4-6 weeks, or until bubbling ceases.




Rack and Age:
1. After primary fermentation slows down, carefully siphon (rack) the wine into a clean, sanitized secondary fermentation vessel, leaving behind any sediment at the bottom.
2. Seal the secondary vessel with an airlock and let the wine continue to ferment and clarify for another 2-3 months.

Bottle the Wine:
1. Once the wine is clear and no longer fermenting (no bubbles visible), it's ready to be bottled.
2. Use sanitized wine bottles and a funnel to fill each bottle, leaving a small space at the top (headspace).
3. Cork or cap the bottles and store them in a cool, dark place for at least 6 months to age and develop flavor.

Tips:
- Ensure all equipment and utensils used are thoroughly sanitized to prevent contamination and spoilage.
- Taste your wine periodically during aging to monitor its flavor development.
- Enjoy your homemade pomegranate wine chilled or at room temperature as a delightful beverage or paired with meals.
