Default Pineapple cider..... Wine?

2 gallons Motts natural fresh pressed 100% apple juice
2 1/2 gallons pineapple juice
4 lbs corn sugar
2 lbs dark brown sugar
OG 1.100
Wyeast 4766 cider

So this is what I have going in 6.5 gallon bucket. By day 2-3 airlock was bubbling like crazy with some wonderful fruity smells coming through the vodka. Today is day 9 and still bubbling consistently every 2 secs but the smell Is a little more yeasty???? Kind of like the smell of the spud made in prison but with notes of pineapple. What should I do with this experiment?

grab a current gravity reading, see where it is and sample it.

Okay, I racked this into a 5 gallon glass carboy. I took a gravity reading of 1.000. This gives me just over 13% ABV if I did the math correctly? OG was 1.100. It is very cloudy. I also tasted it and WOW! It really packs a punch! It tastes like liquid heart burn! I'm hoping with time it will become a much smoother and enjoyable drink.

Okay so here's an update, after 2 months I just took a gravity reading of .990 I tasted and WOW! Lots of burn! I just added a packet of red star Montrachet wine yeast and the airlock started bubbling within seconds. Tell me what you think!

I'm curious as to why you added yeast with a gravity of .990. Seems like it would be time for aging/clearing, doubtful the gravity will drop any more.

I've worked in one for nearly 10 years now. I've found many gallons of it.
