Put a rubber glove on the neck of the bottle and make a hole in it through which all excess gas will escape.
To understand that the fermentation process is completed, you can glove . When it is blown away, the wine can be filtered. To do this, strain it through a piece of gauze.
Now you need to add another half glass of sugar to the filtered drink. After this, the wine must be removed to infuse in a dark place for two months. Be patient, this time is needed for the drink to ripen.
Gently pour the wine through the straw. Try to keep the residue at the bottom of the tank and not get into the new bottle.

You can make wine from jam without added sugar. To do this, jam must be mixed with water in equal proportions and boil 3-4 minutes, stirring continuously. Then remove from heat and let cool. Pour into bottles, leaving about a fifth of the container free, and add raisins there. Put rubber gloves on the bottles and leave the wine to ferment.

There is another recipe homemade wine from jam without sugar. For it, you will need a three-liter jar that needs to be disinfected: wash with soda, rinse with warm water. Put jam and raisins in this jar, add boiled water. Mix everything, close the lid and put the jar in a warm place for 7-10 days. Then strain the liquid through cheesecloth, pour into a new container, put on a rubber glove on top and leave to ferment for 1-1.5 months. When the glove falls off, bottle the wine and leave it for 2 months in a dark place.
If you do not want to wait a few months, you can use the recipe for instant wine. To do this, put a liter of jam, 200 g of rice, 20 g of live yeast in a cleanly washed bottle and fill it with warm water.

If jam old but not fermented, such a recipe would do. A liter of sugared jam should be put in a 3 liter bottle . Pour there 120 grams of raisins and pour warm, up to 40 degrees, water. Close the container tightly with a stopper wrapped in cotton and leave to roam in a warm place. After about 10 days, open the bottle, strain the liquid into a clean container, put on a rubber medical glove over your throat and leave it for another 1.5 months in the same place, protected from light and draft. After 40 days, the wine can be bottled using a thin hose, cork the bottle tightly and lay horizontally in a storage place. Two months later, the wine is ready, it can be served to the table. The drink may turn out to be foamy, so you should open it with caution.
Wine can be made from any jam, but raspberry, strawberry, apple, currant and cherry are best.
In order for homemade jam wine to retain its taste, the rules for its storage must be observed .
First, use only clean bottles in making wine. It is important to ensure that all containers are thoroughly disinfected at all stages of the manufacture and storage of the drink. Wine will be better stored in dark glass containers.
The ideal temperature for jam wine is 10-12 degrees. In such circumstances, the wine will retain its fresh taste and fruity aroma.
It is very important to keep home-made wine for the period prescribed by the recipe. Wine that has not reached the right time will not have a pronounced taste and smell.
Wine bottles should not be placed vertically. In this position, the plug may dry out and break the container. It is preferable to store the wine in a horizontal position.
Temperature changes can negatively affect the taste of the drink.
You can’t transfer wine from one container to another, it can go bad. An open bottle of wine can be stored in a cool place (preferably in the refrigerator) for several days.
Wine can absorb foreign odors, so it’s best not to keep the bottle open next to products with strong aromas.
