Gummamela (Rosa Jamaica Wine)

 

1 gallon

 

Here's the main ingredients of one gallon wine:

 

2 lb of fresh hibiscus flowers

1 lb of assorted fragrant rose petals

1 gram grape tannin

2 1/2 lbs sugar

1/2 tsp citric acid

1 1/2 tsp pectic enzyme

1 tsp malic acid

1 tsp yeast energizer

1 tsp yeast nutrient

Montrachet yeast

 

Basically I steeped the rose petals and used that aromatic water instead of ordinary water in making my wine, that is how far the roses came into the wine making process. You can grind the hibiscus flowers in a blender or food processor. Basically melt the sugar in the warm aromatic (rose-scented) water, and mix all into the primary. Add yeast when temperature cools down to 80 deg F and below.
