No attention is paid to acidity with this recipe. You don't really need to worry unless you use like lemonade concentrate or something with extreme acidity.

Anybody tried this with cranberry? I just put together a 1 gallon test batch today. I used 2 cans cranberry, 2 cups sugar, 1 tsp yeast nutrient, and Lalvin D47.

I've done 50/50 grape-cranberry but never straight cranberry.

Just tasted my cranberry batch and racked to secondary today. It's good but it's quite tart. I'm thinking it may need to be blended 50/50 with something else but I'm going to give it a while to clear up more first. Definitely encouraging but that 50/50 grape/cranberry is sounding like it might be my next attempt here.

What is tbls of nutrient? also what temp does this have to sit at? I was looking for an easy wine to get started in wine making, this looks like the one. i like that you give options to make it our own. As a beer brewer and never having done a wine before, I'm going to try this recipe. Does this bubble through an air lock like a beer would? I usually use a blow off tube for beer since they can really bubble off and explode your top even. Thanks!

A) I'm lazy and just do 1tbl of nutrient and energizer and don't really think about it.

B) No need for a blow off tube. No krausen to consider.
