Looks right to me

So If I made a 5 gallon batch with 2 pounds of sucrose and it fermented dry, what would my alcohol percent be?

How to make the wine shown in the photos? They look very good taste!! I really want to drink them! I never brew wine myself before, I just saw my freind brewed the grape wine.

I just checked my batch (original recipe) that I started approx 2 months ago. The SG is now at 1.002. How about putting it in beer bottles now and letting the rest of the sugar carb it up? Would this be asking for bottle bombs?
Thanks,

Just got done checking my batch also. I didn't take an OG but guessing it was pretty much per recipe. its about a week into fermenting (can't remember if I made this last sat or sunday)

here is what is in it:
10 cans Meijer Apple Juice Concentrate
3 "heaping" cups of Brown sugar
water to 3.75ish gallons (was going for 2 gallons but for some reason I thought 1 can = 1/2 gallon and thats not true)

sg is now 1.0ish (you getting a sence of my measure accuracy here )pretty clowdy still and still the occational bubble.

might rack off tommrow or might just forget about it till after I get married and go to flordia end of next month. although that is 5 weeks away prolly 7 by the time I get back and settled in before I can bottle

I didn't intend to serve homebrew at the wedding but could be cool to have a case of this stuff avail since ferment is about done would this clear quicker if I racked to a glass carboy? any chance I could bottle say a month from tommrow and be in good shape?

It will take 3 more weeks for it to clear and 3 weeks to carb unless your kegging.
