The Pros and Cons of DIY Bathtub Wine


So, you want to make your own bathtub wine. Or you already did, in which case, congratulations! Maybe, like me, you were stuck inside the week after the hurricane with all the supplies necessary and nothing else to do? Good, great. It’s pretty low-risk, high-reward proposition, assuming your materials consist of Welch’s frozen grape juice concentrate, sugar, and yeast (which they should). It’s also much easier than making beer, and pretty worth it for the YouTube tutorials alone.

But before you dive into a weird rabbit hole of internet forums (and invest in disinfecting tablets, corks, and a huge, airtight container), you maybe want to think about all the possible eventualities for this DIY project? All the dizzying highs and devastating lows? Of course you do. Let’s explore that.
