It took off for about two weeks then slowed to a stop. It isn't doing anything now looks clear and flat no bubbles. Mike

The frozen concentrates are what size? 12 oz? 6 oz? Some come in both sizes.

How big was your batch? I'm still leaning with pulling off half or 3/4 of a gallon, and cutting in with that much water. Do the same with what you pull off in a separate 1gal jug and then recombine at bottling.

In the original recipe, I would think you could reduce the amt of sugar according to taste? I prefer my wine drier, so I am thinking 1# or less per can? Any thoughts?

Oh yes. You can adjust it to your taste. If you want it to ferment drier you'll just need a lower starting gravity.

I used cranberry blend - old orchard concentrate. Should I be worried that there is no action in the airlock? It has been fermenting since Sunday. It is foaming up. First day I did not airlock it. I stirred it yesterday. Any thoughts?

If it's foaming it should be going. Is your airlock on there tight?

Hmm... I'm at a loss. My straight-grape concentrate wine is plugging along pretty well at the moment. Cranberry can be a little acidic so maybe that's having an effect?
