How to Make Your Own Cranberry Wine

Slide 1 of 6

As when making any wine, you’ll need the proper equipment. There are various types you can buy, ranging from size to sophistication, and for our project we went with the most basic package. We chose to start our wine in a 3 gallon primary fermenter, where it would live in its early stages of life, and then purchased a glass carboy as the secondary fermenter. For the carboy, we also bought an air lock that would allow oxygen to flow in and out of the wine while it fermented for over a year. Along with the containers, we needed a hydrometer, a siphon hose, a racking cane, and a shut off clamp.
