I agree, and recipe formulation is something I have done a lot of reading on. I've got a few of the style-based books to get a idea of the traditional ways to make certain styles, and try to draw...

I heated 3 gal of the apple juice and steeped the hibiscus in it for a while. I steeped it at 175F to make sure the hibiscus didn't bring anything to the must I don't want.
