Ingredients: Make Banana Wine

2 1/2 lb / 1,100 grams mashed bananas
2 lb / 900 grams sugar
1/2 pint strong black tea
1 tablespoon citric acid
Water up to 1 gallon
Yeast nutrient
Sac ch. Oryza wine yeast

Method - What to Do

Place bananas in water and bring to the boil. Strain and pour into a fermentation bucket over the sugar, stirring vigorously to dissolve. When cool add the citric acid, strong tea, yeast nutrient and wine yeast. Cover and leave to ferment for five days stirring daily. Using a fine sieve strain the liquid into a demijohn and use an airlock to seal the jar.

Store in a warm place and allow the fermentation to work. When fermentation has ceased, rack the wine into a clean jar and place in a cooler environment and leave for a further few months. When the wine is clear and stable siphon into bottles.

Why? Custard would have been my preference.
