I had tons of plums on our tree this year and have made loads of wine. If you need the equipment try eBay as a lot of shops don't stock homebrew/wine making equipment these days.

My friends mum bought a load of secondhand wine making equipment at a Boot-Sale and she gave it to me. I should manage to get at least 44 standard bottles of wine for under £10 (UK Pounds Sterling).

The main tip I would give anyone - make sure to steralise everything thouroughly, and try not to expose the wine to the air. Also, don't have bowls of fruit nearby when you are working with the wine - as it is those little fruit flies that can infect your wine and turn it to vinegar.

Also, there are two ingredients that you can add to wine to help it clear - called AMALAYSE and PECTALAYSE. AMALAYSE is for vegetable wine and PECTALAYSE is for fruit wine - it helps to stop it being cloudy.

For you wine bottles - make friends with a local pub or restaurant and ask if you can have their empty bottles. Again - make sure to steralise them properly. NEVER USE OLD CORKS! Invest in a proper airlock as well.

This looks So do-able : ))

Do we cover the jar loosely? tightly? not at all?

Cover the jar loosely with fabric.

Editor's Note: Cheesecloth is good for this.
