Mike,

Do you carbonate your wine? I was thinking this would sound good for SWMBO if made into a sparking drink. Kind of like a wine spritzer.

Hehe, not intentionally. I left some pom wine in the closet for a month and lo and behold, it apparently wasn't completely clear of yeast because when I opened it it sounded like a gun went off. Tons of little bubbles, just enough to put some sizzle on the tongue. I think the peach would be stellar carbed, but I'm still very new to this whole thing and I'm not sure how to go about it. Any ideas?

I think carbing with carb drops, cooper drops. 1 drop per 12oz bottle, cap and shake every three days until 2 weeks go by

Maybe carbing like any beer. A standard 5 gal batch of beer needs 5 oz (weight). So an oz per gal outa do the trick. Bulk prime at bottling.

So for 5 gal mix 3/4 cup of sugar and 3/4 cup of water & boil, add this to bottling bucket and rack from the carboy on top and bottle.

You could do cane, beet or corn as long as its gonna get boiled.
