Sorry for the de-rail but I got excited when I read advice from Yopper and Reevy in the same thread.

Back to the "Can he have 15% wine ready in a month" question?
I say it will be done fermenting but quite rough drinking...

That is exactly what I did with mine. It's the same old apfelwein recipe, just carbed high.
