Alright..I went ahead and bottled it up..

While siphoning, it was surprisingly carbonated. After I bottled it up, I had to unscrew the caps about once a day to let the gas out.

So, the wine is pretty sweet, but less than the regular juice was. After adding 7lbs of sugar, to have it less sweet than it was by itself is a good sign. Weird cause you still can't taste the alcohol but you can sort of smell it.

The girlfriend and I both had two cups to see what the alcohol content was like cause I don't have a hydrometer for some reason. It was definitely pretty strong alcohol-wise. It takes me a year to get drunk but she was pretty buzzed already..

Last weird thing was that we both had some pretty bad heartburn for a while and just an overall odd feeling. Any idea what would cause that?

Carbonic acid from too much CO2 in the wine?

@DoctorCAD: I would have to say that's definitely it. You can still see some bubbling in the bottles, and I open the caps to let out the gas every once in a while. How do I remove the acid? I haven't added any kmeta or sulfides yet.
