I use an average of 8 pounds per gallon when I make my apple wine. Comes out wonderful.

It seems that apple wine can take quite a while to age. I was hoping to be drinking some sooner rather than later. How long do u like to age?

I think it normally got in 3 months. Mine ages maybe 2 months. It's pretty quick and taste good.

Well, my apple wine is actually really good. I decided to back sweeten a bit with some apple juice concentrate and wow! What a difference. I used 2 cans of apple juice concentrate, 1 can of welches white grape con. and about 2 cups of white cranberry juice(cause it was kicken around) I can't believe how good it tastes. Can't wait to age it and see how it changes. I want to take a SG test to see how sweet it is. I would say it might be a medium sweet. ( FYI this is a 5gal. Batch)
