Sounds interesting. Was the 1/2 gallon water used to dissolve the sugar before adding it to the juice?

I just used that water to rinse out the juice bottles. The sugar seemed to dissolve pretty well in the juice when I shook the Carboy.

I think I'll let this ferment out, then maybe age is in a little oak and serve it still.
