"Champagne"
 
I was thinking of making a "Champagne" using 2 pounds of sugar and 5 gallons of white grape juice (like ap ). Due to the Potassium Metabisulfate in the bottled juice, I was thinking of using the frozen concentrate. I was wondering if anybody had any experience with making something like this.

I make a sparkling apple wine that dries out well and resembles domestic "Champagne". I add a little Welch's white grape concentrate.

Sure - this is an easy one that I always keep around. It's deceptively delicious and it'll sneak up on you before you know it. I call it cider because the primary ingredient is apple juice but, as I said, it dries out very well and closely resembles domestic "Champagne".
