Homemade Grape Wine

I've got a batch in the crock right now - here's the recipe for anyone who would like to try some.

Homemade Grape Wine

3 pounds black grapes
3 pounds sugar
1 ounce yeast
1 gallon water

Crush grapes by hand and set aside in the fermenting vessel. Bring the water to boiling point and pout in sugar. When the water reaches boiling point again and the sugar is dissolved, but off heat and pour sugar liquid over grapes. Allow mixture to cool, sprinkle yeast on top. Stir in, cover with plastic wrap tied in place with a string. Ferment 14 days, strain and bottle.
