Question About Making Sparkling Wine/Champagne?? Answered
I have some finished wine that I want to make into sparkling wine. I understand that you may add a certain sugar solution to it and it will carbonate. There is a problem with this because there will be a residue at the bottom of the bottle. I was wondering if a method I thought of would also work. Here is how it goes.
1) Boil off and collect the alcohol from the wine, with a still.
2) Boil off and collect the water from the wine, with a still.
3) Replace the water you collected from the wine with tonic water that you are putting in the wine.
4) Re-add the alcohol
If I am correct I should have carbonated wine, aka sparkling wine. If anyone has any idea if this will or won't work and why, please answer.
Thank you for your time.
