Default Use excess wine for a port?

I saw an online recipe for making port that calls for 1 gallon of grape juice. I just so happen to have an extra gallon of juice that has already fermented for a week or so. Can I use that instead?

That would depend on the recipe, care to share it?

You would need to drop some Camden in it first to kill the yeast, but I do not see why you couldn't.

That recipe calls for a gallon of grape concentrate, so if you have a gallon of juice, cut everything by a factor of four.

Good point... So really I would need almost 3 gallons of pure juice to make 6 gallons of this port so it's not ultra diluted?

More like four and reduce the water the same amount.
