Raisin Wine No 3
To one hundred pound of raisins boil eighteen gallons of water, and let
it stand till cold, with two ounces of hops. Half chop your raisins;
then put your water to them, and stir it up together twice a day for a
fortnight. Run it through a hair-sieve; squeeze the raisins well with
your hands, and put the liquor into the barrel. Bung it up close; let it
stand till it is clear; then bottle it.
