According to my knowledge and experience one can probably make his strongest home made wine briefly as follow :
materials : 20 kg red grape , 5 kg sugar , 30 liter barrel , 20 liter plastic bottle, air lock valve and etc ......
procedure : we smash the good quality red grape and put it in the barrel then we add sugar and after mixing we cover with a nylon sheet and tide it with a rubber so stuff in there will be isolated from the air ( primary fermentation ).
2 weeks later for next 2 weeks we mix it everyday and we seal it again. now we separate solid from liquid by filtering, then we transfer the liquid to the plastic bottle and isolate it with the air lock stopper ( secondary fermentation ). 4 to 6 weeks later our wine is ready for bottling. Letting our wine to reside in the plastic bottle more period of time would increase it's aging because air locker let fermentation gases like CO2 gets out, therefore more fermentation takes place and stronger wine can be obtained.
If anybody have suggestions in respect to improvement of our wine please don't hesitate to give a comment.
Thank you all
