One of the best sites on the web for wine making recipes is the Jack Keller website, I think it is http://www.winemaking.jackkeller.net where they have recipes for just about everything to be turned in to wine.

It is an American site so some of the quantities are in odd measurements and occaisionally you wonder what on earth some ingredient is but it's well worth a look. I have never made Seville Orange wine but did make his Jalapeno wine recipe a few years ago when I had a glut of peppers and it was a storming drink,  went down nice and dry and then what can only be described as afterburn in the throat when the peppers kicked in.

Hello, Vagabondic. Welcome and thank you very much for contributing.

That site has some good info, even if it is difficult to read. Nice one.

Here's a traditional French way of making vin d'orange:

I haven't tried it yet, but I do intend to if I can get bitter oranges in La Caunette next weekend.

Welcome Vagabondic - memories of a long time ago - I used to belong to a club called The Vagabonds. Interesting what memories can be dragged up !!

ok my orange wine has been maturing for a month now: so this morning I began the filtering stage.  I naively assumed this meant pouring through 2 pop socks.....nope!  2 filters through with this method and the wine was still cloudy; so, some lateral thinking later and now it is dripping slowly through coffee filter papers in 2 sieves.  It may take some timeConfused but it finally looks like the clear stuff I remember!!

Oh yes! it smells fantastic too!ChefChampagne

Well done, shelly. I bet you're looking forward to the tasting.

I filtered my bramble whiskey through some coffee filters and was delighted at the clear liqueur that came out. I'll be using the coffee filter method again when it comes time to filter the raspberry vodka.

After a long double filtration, I am very pleased with the clear liquid that has resulted!!  A friend dropped by and says it tastes yummy so double pleasure!!Medicine

I was wondering how yours was getting on Shelley! I had the same problem as you; I filtered through muslin, but it was *very* cloudy. So I left the filtered liquid to settle for a couple of days, poured off the clear part, and now I'm leaving the claggy remains to drain through a coffee filter. It tastes a bit strong at the moment, so I'm hoping it will mellow slightly with time.

It tasted a bit strong at this end too, so I added a bit more sugar to mellow it to the sweet syrupyness I remember tasting!
