Someone Finally Made Wine In A Crock Pot!

It’s a meme come true!

Well, maybe not exactly…

The guy used juice, not grapes. And instead of a plain old crock pot he used a multi-function cooker called an Instant Pot.

Whatever. We’re calling it wine in a crock pot.

David Murphy is the mastermind behind the experiment, which he blogs about at FOODNSERVICE. He says that while the wine making process isn’t difficult, it does require a little bit of patience.

You’re not just going to wake up one day and start throwing juice in your Instant Pot and expect to have wine by the end of the day. That’s not how it works; however, starting the process off in your Instant Pot will GREATLY reduce the amount of time it takes to have drinkable wine in less time than normal.

Murphy offers a full recipe, instructions, and helpful hints on his blog. There are even photographs from various stages of the process. He also mentions his experiments with aging.

TYPICALLY, you can wait up to a month to drink it to be at a fabulous spot. However, you can drink it way before then. I found that after 8 days of being int he bottle, I really didn’t notice the fizziness anymore.

So now you know you really can make wine in a crock pot! Well, an Instant Pot anyway. We have to admit, we’re curious to try it ourselves. There’s just one more thing… the most important question when it comes to wine.


How does it taste?

Honestly, it was so much better than some of those cheap bottles of wine that I’ve bought. Dare I say, even better than the 2 buck Chuck from Trader Joe’s!

Not exactly a ringing endorsement, maybe.

Still, if we can lay hands on an Instant Pot we might whip up a batch! What about you? If you do try, make sure to come back and leave a comment, so we all know how it worked out!
