Fermentation is complete! Do I just back sweeten to taste? How many cans of concentrate is normal? Mine fermented all the way down to 1.004. I am thinking two cans of concentrate will be good. It has a great sour apple taste, so I don't want to add to much. Can't wait to get this in bottles and carb it up and drink it!

Just ordered a Deluxe/Beginners wine making equipment kit-Glass from ebay last week.

I think this is going to be the first recipe I try.

I've had similar problems with beer not fermenting. Give it another day or so before you repitch yeast or add nutrient

Approximately how long do you let it ferment before bottling?

Adding on to that, is there any need to worry about bottle bombs if we don't back sweeten? If I just bottle it after 2 months of fermentation, can I let it bottle age safely without concern for it blowing up?

Just made this recipe. I screwed up and only put in 4 gallons of apple juice with the rest of the ingredients. Fermented for a little over a month. Then I backsweetened with the final gallon of apple juice, and added campden / K sorbate. Absolutely delicious.
