Do I remove stones from damsons for wine making?

Do I remove stones from damsons for wine making?

by Mrs Michelle Macklam

I have never made wine before and would like to know if I should remove the stones before making the wine or leave whole in the fermenting bucket? Thanks

Michelle, it is better to remove the stones from the damsons first, before making your wine. This also gives you the opportunity to have a look at the fruit very carefully making sure that you don't end up adding any fruit that is spoiled.

Any fruit that is slightly spoiled can end up affecting your wine making process, and you certainly wouldn't want that.

Wishing you all the best with your damson wine, and do let us know how it turned out.
