This guava wine has been curing for some time now but if you get your hands on some guava this Christmas season here is a simple wine recipe to make guava wine. There's not much to it because you're not really cooking lol 🙂 but it will still take some skill and close attention. First of all make sure all utensils used are sterilized with hot water. Then pay attention to the measurements in the list of ingredients and length of time for the fermentation process. In time maybe I'll perfect the wine making process and be able to come up with a ratio if you want your wine dry, sweet, or sparkling.
But for now we'll be sticking to the traditional sweet fruity wines we all look forward to during the Christmas season. Enjoy.
Guava Wine Recipe
4 ½ dozen med Ripe Guavas, burst in half with hands
4 cups sugar
2 tablespoon instant yeast
5L water (about 21 cups)
5 cups sugar
1 cup raisins
Note: Cleanliness is key to making wine. Sterilize all utensils using hot water.
So 21 days has passed and the whole room is smelling of guava when we opened the bucket lol .
But we're not finished yet....
raisins. Leave for 10 days.
After the 10 days strain again and pour into sterilized “bottles” and store in a cool dry place.
Note: As you can see the wine will still need to strain as the residue settles while the wine cures overtime.
Well we're on a roll again and I do apologize for having you all wait so long for a recipe post but as they say good things come to those who wait....And good things are coming for you all from Simply Trini Cooking. Stay tuned.

Just right 🙂 Happy Christmas Holidays and blessings 2014 and 2015 too...
Guava is a little hard to come by up north (and if you do come by it, it will be pretty pricey) so it didn't make my xmas homebrew list for this year but instead i've done plenty with other fruits - cherry, grape, pear, and blueberry. I use the technique of putting all the sugar, fruit, and raisins in at the beginning. Has worked well so far.
'In time maybe I’ll perfect the wine making process and be able to come up with a ratio if you want your wine dry, sweet, or sparkling'....any update on that ratio for dry, sweet or sparkling as yet Felix? 🙂
Not as yet dc but maybe later down in the year I may give it some thought.
about how many pounds of fruit do you need, would you say?
I can only average but I would say about 8 - 10 lbs.
