So I'm following a recipe and it says:
Thaw strawberries and grape juice concentrate.
Dissolve sugar in 5 pints water and bring to boil.
Strain juice or syrup from fruit and save liquid. Put thawed fruit in nylon straining bag in primary and crush fruit with hands.
Pour boiling water over fruit, cover primary, and set aside to cool. When cooled to 80-85° F., add grape juice concentrate, tannin, acid, yeast nutrient, reserved juice or syrup, and 1 pint water.
I'm assuming they are referring to the boiling water of sugar... Is this correct? Thats just how I'm reading it and since I'm new to this, I don't want to mess this up.
