Fruit Wine Making Equipment

The equipment needed to make Wine From Fruit is very similar to the equipment that you need to make Wine From Concentrate, so if you already have that equipment you will need very little else. We provide a complete list of all the equipment you will need to make fruit wine below, but keep in mind that Midwest Supplies offers Equipment Kits that are prepackaged and contain everything you need to get started.

One thing to keep in mind when choosing what equipment you need is the amount of fruit you have. It is important that you have no more than 2-3” of head space in you secondary fermentor once the wine has been stabilized with Potassium Metabisulphite. You can make roughly one gallon of wine for every 4-6 pounds of fruit depending on the recipe. So, if you are using a 3 Gallon Glass Carboy to age your wine you will need 12-18lbs of fruit (3 gallons X 4-6lbs per gallon of wine). If you are limited in the amount of fruit you have access to, make sure that you buy the correct size equipment.

Equipment list to make fruit wine

*Size is determined by how much fruit you have available to make wine.

Find our full line of Wine Making equipment here.

As for the wine ingredients, they will vary depending on the type of fruit you’re using. Our Fruit Wine PDF Library has instructions on making wine from several different kinds of fruit. A Fruit Press and Fruit Crusher are not absolutely necessary for smaller batches of wine, but they are a big time saver if you plan on making 6 gallons of wine or more.

If you’re making wine on a budget, take a look at our PDF titled “I don’t want to invest in expensive equipment. Is there cheaper equipment available to make a small batch of fruit wine?” There are some good hints for extracting the juice using household items instead of a wine press or crusher. But remember, the suggestions in this fruit wine making guide are only for 1 – 3 gallon batches of wine and can get very tiring for larger amounts.

A hydrometer is a must for making fruit wine because a hydrometer is the only way to accurately know how much sugar to add to the wine. If you don’t have one, we suggest picking one up. They are not very expensive, and they go a long way to making better wine at home. A Hydrometer Test Jar and Wine Thief are also handy, and make taking readings with you hydrometer much easier.

We have several options available to help you make fruit wine at home. You are sure to be able to find an option that suites your needs. Midwest Fruit Wine Making Equipment Kits
