Default Apple Raspberry Juice Concentrate Recipe Help

While buying some Welch's White Grape Raspberry concentrate for my first batch of homemade wine, the wife bought some apple raspberry concentrate as well and wants to make wine with it.

We're using the recipe from this thread for the grape raspberry:

Will the same thing work for apple raspberry?

Yes. That recipie will work just fine. With just two cans of juice per gal it will be a nice light wine. For a stronger flavor add more frozen juice and less watter and suger.
One can of juice and two cans of watter ratio will make a full flavored wine with no need of extra suger. So you can use three cans juice with half the recamended suger for a medium flavored wine. Just remember the more suger you add the higher the abv will be and the longer it takes to mellow.
Enjoy!

Started the first batch of grape raspberry this morning. I did two cans of concentrate and 3 cups of sugar. My starting gravity was 1.100 so I assume it'll come out a little sweeter and a bit higher ABV?

I'm pitching D-47 tonight.

D-47 will go to 14% abv. If the wine goes compleatly dry it will be about 14.25%. Sometimes the yeast will give you a higher abv then expected. If after it is done and you think it is too light in flavor drink some and top off with more concentrate. That will bost flavor and sweeten it at the same time. It may restart fermenting if you don't sorbate it. However the yeast will probely be alcahol poisened by then.
Enjoy!
