    here`s a couple of recipies for you ,the 1st 2 are from c.j.j. berry

    beetroot wine

    1.8kg (4lb) young beetroot
    1.2kg (2 1/2lb) sugar
    yeast and nutrient
    1 lemon
    4-6 cloves
    1/2 oz root ginger
    4.5 ltrs water

    beetroot and parsnip wine

    1 kg frosted parsnips
    1 kg old beetroot
    1.2 kg sugar
    grape tannin
    pectic enzyme
    2 lemons
    2 oranges
    yeast nutrient

    also another from john wright (hugh fernly whatshisnames mate )

    2 kg beetroot
    1.2 kg sugar
    1 tsp pectic enzyme
    1/2 tsp amylase
    pared zest and juice of 2 lemons
    250ml tim of white grape comcentrate
    1/2 tsp grape tannin
    1 tsp yeast nutrient
    1 ripe banana (optional)

    this last one is for parsnip , carrot or beetroot and he says parsnip is a great wine ,carrot is a good wine and beetroot is an "if you really have too " wine

    "beetroot wine ,on the other hand ,does not seem to be much liked by anyone for the simple reason that it tastes like dirt "

    cheers for the compliment hazel

    hope this helps out any more questions then just ask ,cheers
