adding raisins ?
Ok newb ? time. In alot of recipes i see they call for raisins or grape juice concentrate, why is this? Is it to add tannin w/o adding powder form? Balance of some sort?

Raisins (or bananas) are used as body boosters. They provide body, and some fermentables.

thanks yooper. Does type of raisin matter? or do you use light or dark raisins depending on the color of the wine you are making? as most recipes in the book i have just say raisins
