We decided to make a very fruity rose, so this recipe mixes the Merlot grape for its slight hint of plum and other very ripe fruits, with a crisp and balanced white grape for it’s clearer fruity flavours. The balance is perfect for a rose. Drink it well chilled!

A hydrometer is used to figure out how much alcohol is in your beer or cider. It measures the density of liquid (called gravity). Alcohol is less dense than sugary pre-fermented beer, so measuring gravity at the beginning of fermentation (at the end of your brew day) and measuring it again two weeks later at the end of fermentation (when you’re ready to bottle) will tell you exactly how much alcohol you have on hand. It’s a great way to let a little science into your otherwise relaxing brew day adventures with a hydrometer.
The Merlot grape is similar to the Cabernet Sauvignon, the main difference is that it contains less harsh tannins so this wine is better balanced immediately after it has been made. From the Merlot grape, we get the typical hint of plums and balanced aftertaste. This medium dry Merlot red is a perfect choice to go with most meat dishes.
