Default Im a special kid

When i went to the store to grab some Apple Juice from the store for my 2nd apfelwein, well, i was in a hurry and grabbed Apple juice from concentrate that i only 15% juice..haha.

We'll needless to say I didnt realize til after i made it but im going to let it go and see what happens. It was only a 2.5 gallon batch so I am not to worried about the 6 weeks lost.

You will have only 15% Apfelwein. Sorry.

I'm guess thinking, but if you put in some frozen concentrate, shouldn't you be able to overtake the 85% water of the juice you bought?

LOL!! That is funny!

I'm sure it will be drinkable, but I personally would not call it Ed's Apfelwein if'n it were me. I doubt Ed would approve.

Wouldn't it be fine though???

If you think about it, "concentrate" is literally concentrated apple juice by taking the water out of it. It is then "reconcentrated" by adding the water back in. It should still have the same amount of sugar by volume.

What's the difference?

I would be more worried about the preservatives and what they might affect final fermentation.
