My batch of ed worts apple wine is just about done fermenting (3 weeks in primary). i only used 4 gallons in a 5 gal better bottle. I want to add another gallon of juice to it. I was thinking maybe cranberry,grape,blueberry or just to top it off with more apple juice? anyone have experience or suggestions?

What was your recipe? Have you done apfelwein before? If you haven't, and you have added 2lbs to 4 gallons, then add 1 gallon of apple juice so you end up with the original recipe.

You can easily add any of those flavors (or all for that matter) by simply putting a splash or small quantity of the juice in your glass of naked apfelwein or use flavored sodas for a fizzy mix.

either add the apple, or leave it alone.

My wife made "sangria" with it – said she wanted to try something… she used strawberries, watermelon, blueberries.... I was highly skeptical; then I was incredibly inebriated.

After fermintation is complete, use something to completely kill the yeast. Then add one part white grape juice to two parts wine. What I don't drink, my wife's family pounds down. Bottle and enjoy. Also I either completely degas the wine or force carbonate in a fat pig. Both are pretty good but with differant tastes due tho the co2.

P.S. I just did a small batch adding apple juice and it was kinda weird. it was like taking a bite from 2 apples at once. It sounds interesting but i think a contrasting flavor is more suitable.
