Simplified wine making
Used this method literally hundreds of times over the years.

I use 2 pans which when full of liquid will fill a demi-john, add your fruit/vegetables and boil for approx 15/20 mins. Remove fruit/veg and add 1kg of sugar between the 2 and allow to simmer for 10 mins. Add to demi-john and allow to cool before adding yeast, add air lock and fermentation will take approx a month outside of winter temps.

To further simplify I've used regular bottles to ferment wine with no air lock and only a cloth laid over it to keep out flys.

Always used Youngs wine yeast (because its the cheapest available locally to me) and never had any issues with it. Was once gave a tub of Youngs yeast which was 8 years past its use by date and brewed up fine so wine yeast keeps well beyond the UBD
