Many people think that wine brewed by themselves is not adulterated and cost-effective, and tastes more delicious. Therefore, brewed wine is widely studied and promoted by many families. However, compared with the regular breweries, home-brewed wines can be similar in taste, but the restrictions of technology, hygiene, storage and other factors, more or less, still exist potential health hazards.
1. Easy to mold.
Wine grapes need high maturity, no damage, no moldy, etc. Grapes are not easy to preserve at room temperature, easy to occur mildew, if the freshness is not high, will make wine easier to breed mold. Therefore, we must choose fresh grapes, grapes must not be bought home to store a few days before the beginning of wine.
2. Containers are prone to chemical reactions.
Usually wine, the family bottles and cans, buckets, vats are almost all in use, glass bottles, cola bottles, mineral water bottles and so on often "battle". In fact, when making wine, it is better not to use plastic, stainless steel, aluminum containers and other containers to hold, in order to avoid chemical reactions, produce harmful substances to the body. Wine making is best choice of glassware.
3. Excessive sugar is a danger to health.
In fact, most wines try to avoid sugar content. In wine-rich countries, people have carried out round after round of hard exploration to make wine less sugar or even no sugar. But in the process of home brewing, we choose to add more sugar to help ferment. Wine itself is good for human body. Even diabetic people can drink it. But if we add too much sugar, it will do harm to human body.
4, fermentation time and temperature can not be controlled.
Generally, home-brewed wine starts to drink within a month, but under normal circumstances, white wine needs 3-4 months of fermentation time, red wine needs 1-2 years of fermentation time, fermentation temperature also has strict requirements, generally no more than 20 degrees. But family BREW can not guarantee time and temperature.
5. Hide harmful substances.
Home-brewed wines may contain methanol and fusel oil, which may have toxic and side effects on the body. At present, there is no process to remove methanol and fusel oil from home-brewed wines, so some people will have headaches and stomachaches after drinking their own wines. Moreover, because the hardware is not up to standard, can not achieve the whole closed sterilization production, home-brewed wine is also difficult to achieve sanitary standards, there may be E. coli exceeded the standard, resulting in gastrointestinal discomfort.
6, less phenol content
As for nutrients, according to the wine tasters, there are fewer phenolic substances in home-brewed wine, and there is still a big gap between the real dry red wine.
Homebrewed wine is very interesting, and can experience the hard work and joy of wine brewing, to a certain extent, can be advocated. But to sum up, online wine gurus believe that occasional home-brewed wine or drink some is okay, but not suitable for regular drinking. Want to drink healthily, good health, or choose regular manufacturer bottled wine is better.
