You should make it any grocery store concentrate(or bottled) I'd be very interested! I just start an old orchard blueberry pomegranate. I love these easy to make/cheap wines.

I have two posted- one for grape (white or red) juice, and one for apple juice. But instead of those juices, any juice (cran-raspberry, apple-raspberry, etc) will don.

Me too, especially in the winter when I have no fruit growing in my yard!

Dried Elderberry/Hibiscus is my favorite, I use Welches White Grape as the base.

What recipe do you use!? I have never used additions to mine yet. Such as elderberry or raisins or anything. I would love to try it

Mostly, I wing it...but here is the last one I made: 1 pound dried elderberries rehydrated in 1 gallon of boiling sugar water (8 cups), 2 cups of hibiscus leaves. Let steep overnight then strain. Add a handful of chopped raisons and 3 gallons of Welches Grape Juice. I have made some batches with concord grape juice and some with white grape juice. Pitch your yeast (I use Premier Cuvee for this one) starter and splash rack after a week or two. Then I use a simple syrup, 4 cups per pint of distilled water, and add 2 cups of syrup to taste in three or four rackings. When it is done throwing lees, or it is clear, I bottle and refrigerate. I drink my wine young so I don't add any sulfites. You will have to figure out the proper techniques as this is the way my family has done it for years, and this is what I know. Besides, I only use this for medicinal purposes!

PS, you can get dried elderberries at IHerb.com and hibiscus on Amazon or morethanalive.com...I am looking forward to using some elderberry jelly, my sister made, that didn't set, for my next batch. I also can't wait until my own elderberries are ready. In August, around the country, there are elderberries free for the taking, if you can beat the birds to them!

That sounds really good I am going to have to try that! But what does it mean to splash rack? I've been hearing that a lot recently.
