Default RW Knudsen Juice Wine

I'm considering venturing back into wine making, but not with grapes. My one attempt at it was less than successful.

The thought occured to me this morning that I could buy RW Knudsen juices at the grocery store, pour it in a 5 gallon carboy and ferment it.

They aren't from concentrate. I don't think they have preservatives.

I was thinkig of using a dry or sweet mead yeast.

Anyone see a problem with it?

I'm not sure what juice I'm going to use yet. But if I do it, I'll have to pick up the yeas. In the next 2 hours.

I've used Knudsen's juices for wine and mead with great success. I'd use a traditional wine yeast though - maybe D-47.

I grabbed WPL-720: sweet mead wine yeast.

I was thinking about papaya or mango but I'm not sure they make it anymore. If not, I might go with a black currant cyser.
