in case you wanted to know.... welch's uses either concord (red) or niagara (white) grape juice. I dont think I"ve ever had concord wine, but niagara wine is usually a fruity sweet white with hints of apple. Definitly a drink most swimbos would enjoy.. (unless they dig dry).

Got a case of the white grape on the way from SWMBO's mom.

Beware the welches White Grape Raspberry. It came out way to tart for my tastes, and now I'm just hoping that after a little ageing I'll mellow out a bit. Hopefully I'll be able to blend it eventually with something else, but on its own its way too bitter. It also had no body at all, had to add glycerine to it.

honestly the only luck i've had with welches has been the white grape peach.

I tried making some from a can of "Cranberry, Rasberry, Grape" and my tongue nearly fell off it was so sour. It was definitely drain cleaner in the making.

I'd like to try some ordinary grape (concord?) wine at some point, but I haven't been able to find the right brand just yet. I usually buy a few, and make juice out of them to see if I like them, and if I do I buy more of that brand for making wine out of later.

I've heard that welches grape wine tastes like alcoholic grape jelly. I haven't done it myself, just what i've heard in passing.

As you all know, I like the Welch's 100% concord and drink the wine made from it. Tastes like "communion" wine, I think. Like a dry Mogen David. Not fine wine, but definitely tasty and easy drinking.

I can attest to that first hand. Glad I only made a small batch.

Made a batch from Welches Grape juice. Yeah tastes like communion wine or that cheap wine you buy in the 5 liter boxes; And for 22 bucks to make it works out for my girl. She likes the cheap wine.

Cheap box wine (5 liters) = 9 bucks

Welches Homemade (26 liters) = 22 bucks and two months though to wait.

I got plenty o' carboys - Plus when you buy wine or beer, you never know what preservatives and crap they put in it.

Mine is going to be really cheap wine. Got 24 cans of white grape peach for free. Probably wont make it for a week or two.
