The Home Wine Program currently has two main functions :-

  • Wine recipes. Create a recipe for a wine with chosen levels of alcohol, acid, tannin, sweetness and body. Typical values for commercial wines are given for guidance. Choose up to 11 ingredients from a total of more than 90, or add your own data which will be saved on your pc. Tables and graphs show how well your recipe will meet the targets set. Amounts can be added in a mixture of units, ie Metric, Imperial and US. Once saved, a suggested method of processing the ingredients using standard kitchen equipment will be shown, together with recommended yeast, nutrients, enzymes etc. A table of expected Specific Gravities will be shown. As well as designing new recipes, it can also be used for evaluating existing ones and storing them.
  • Notebook. Record the progress of each batch of wine. Display graphs of temperature, Specific Gravity, titratable acidity, pH, alcohol content and soluble solids/dry extract (body). Keep records of competitions entered and awards won. Each Notebook is linked to a saved recipe.

Downloading the application is free, and doesn’t require registration.

Updates will be made available when any problems or suggestions are sent by email. 

The minimum system requirements are a pc running Microsoft Windows™ 95, 98, Me, NT4, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8/8.1 or 10.
