It gets better with some time. My 1 year old juice wines are much better than the new stuff. Some that I didn't really care for have become quite tasty with time. They will never compare with wine from grapes or most real fruit wines but still quite drinkable. They make great spritzers.

I just added sorbate and campden and bottled my first batch after back sweetening. I hope 60 days of aging will make it much smoother... what I tried was very strong so I hope it mellows out.

I just racked my second batch from primary to seconday onto american oak chips. How long should I let it sit in the secondary before raking it off the oak?

This is a thread that I've looked at for a long time and finally have an excuse to make.

Last week my wife was talking to her doctor about migraines and he mentioned cutting back on sulfites. "Sulfites" rang a homebrewing bell

I have limited experience with wines. i tried one from a kit and it took about 7 years of aging before it tasted decent. By then, most of it had been used for cooking because I gave up on it after two years.

So I've mainly stuck with beer, cysers, and meads.

Here's what I'm thinking of making for her:
4 gallons 100% cranberry juice
4 cans Welches grape juice concentrate
2lbs of honey
Red Star Montrachet Yeast (my other option is Lavlin 71B)

I figure it should end up pleasantly fruity.

way too much acid I think and I would add a teaspoon of tannin. I have been using 15 cans with sugar and the flavor and body has been good. I normally add just two teaspoons of acid blend.

I was having some crazy ideas and wondered if adding a pack of jello (no potassium or recognizable yeast killers) to my primary fermentation would be detrimental to the outcome of my wine? Any thoughts?

From other things I've read gelatin (jello) works as a fining agent. I wouldn't add it untill secondary fermentation if at all.

It could mess up or cause a stuck primary fermentation
