I just hope justbrewit can find a decent bottle - If your still out there please go look in the German supermarkets when you get chance!
I've been told that most of the wine from pumps in the pubs in the UK take a grand total of 2 weeks to produce and the actual cost of product per glass is less than 5p.

You can buy a 7 day wine kit!

I understand the personal hell you'll have if you let SWMBO down. Most german wine kits are probably medium/towards sweet - grab a wine kit from back home/HBS/ebay and have a go, age it a bit longer and then add a bit of sugar if it's still unpalatable for her tastes.

Or just divorce her and spend the wine kit money on beer....

A little background on icewine. Personally I love it but it's quite expensive.

My "SWMBO" likes the cheap still moscatos like you can find in most supermarkets over here. (Barefoot is her favorite.)

I'm trying the muscat concentrate from Alexander: http://californiaconcentrate.com/grapeconcentrate.htm

One 46oz can plus 12 cups of sugar in 5 gallons of water should get you to a sg of about 1.069. Add a little pectic enzyme, tannin, nutrient, and acid and throw in some Red Star Premier Cuvee, a second small dose of yeast nutrient after 4 or 5 days and you should get down to a sg of about .095 by two weeks. If I'm right, that should be somewhere around 10% ABV? Rack it to a carboy and dose with sorbistat, potassium metabisulfite, and sparkalloid, let it rest for a couple of weeks, then backsweeten the bejeesus out of it and bottle.

I dissolved a cup of sugar in a cup of water, boiled and topped with the dry wine up to a half gallon for a test run, and that brought the sg to 1.040 and she seemed to like it quite a bit.

You can find the Alexander concentrate from a few different sources on the 'net, so I'd imagine you can find at least one that will ship to Europe.

Hope this helps you some.
