Rhubarb Wine

Rhubarb Wine

I haven't tried it yet, but I have heard that homemade rhubarb wine is one of the best! I will try it when my plants are ready, but I have to wait a year or two before I have enough.
Rhubarb wine is definitely one way to use up additional stalks, and let's hope that you are using just the stalks! ;0

The only problem with rhubarb is of course the oxalic acid that you need to remove from the rhubarb first before you make your wine. To do this you need to use precipitated chalk, which is basically calcium chloride that has been produced using precipitation.

Anyway, I am not sure how much rhubarb you are growing at the moment, but to make a batch of rhubarb wine you are probably looking at 6 lbs of stalks.

Good luck with your wine when you finally get around to making it!

Perhaps when you do you will be able to send us your recipe and some photos?
