Default quick random question. fresh squeezed/inmate brew?

What is diffrent about fresh squeezing fruit juices to just fermenting shop bought fruit juice out a carton

Sorry if this is daft question i mainly just starting out to brew beers as a hobby but i have been experimenting with brewing fruit juices as i have got alot of diffrent yeasts and it dont take my fermenters to brew just a 5ltr water bottle with a spair air lock on top and filled with fresh fruit juice.

The word that comes to mind is: preservatives. You can get juice from the store that doesn't have them but if you overlook that on the ingredients list you'll have funny-smelling orange juice but no fermentation, as best I can tell. And you can't add zest, which is apparently helpful in how it turns out (says the lady who's been reading her winemaking books like crazy but has yet to do a juice wine)

So far, so good.

Most wines are pretty rough tasting right after fermentation. Let the yeast settle out and let age for a month or two before judging the taste.

Wine making requires patience.

As far as kits go, the are good to learn with. Seeing you already brew beer, you know the fermenting basics. The kits I've done come out well and gets me excited to get my next batch going!

You could start with some very easy juice wines. I have an apple juice wine posted, and it's really good!

I don't know if you get some of the same brands of juice we do, but I also have a Welch's juice recipe posted. You don't need that brand, just make sure it's 100% juice and not with corn syrup or weird stuff. Some of the people I've talked to have done juice wine with things like Apple Raspberry, etc.

Take a look at those recipes. They are either found here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f79/ or under my avatar on the left. Seeing how others are doing it can be very helpful. My banana wine is especially good, and it's easy too!

Patience, Iago. Wine is aged for a reason. It tastes better after aging.

The photo is of the 747 that carried the space shuttle Endeavor to California. Endeavor landed here in Houston, at Ellington Field (to torture us, since NASA here didn't get one) :-) then flew over Austin as well so everybody could see it, before heading west. It was taken by an Austinite that morning.
