    Brazedowl--I used the same idea. I actually used hot water, this allowed the raisins to be
    chopped up quite fine. By the time it was in the fermenter, it was just cool enough to melt any
    added sugars....

    Good choice on the oak, especially if you're a Cab-Sauv fan. This turned out to be a people
    pleaser (read: semisweet) so it's not really my style. I've got some Jack Daniel's soaked oak

    No sugar added. Straight juice + raisins, so I'm guessing about 8% ABV with plenty of body.No
    backsweetening necessary. It's still in the keg waiting for me to bottle and cork--I just run
