I'm new here, first post. I'm going to try this for my next batch. I read on this thread about not putting in the acid blend because of the tartness. Should I or shouldn't I? I also like a semi sweet not dry,suggestions on the recipe? Thanks....

If you're only making 1 gallon, you might as well make two 1 gallon batches- add acid blend to one and omit it from the other- I've just followed the original recipe adding some golden raisins to boost the body.

I'm going to make 5 gallon. I was also thinking of adding raisins. How much did you add and when? Thanks. Great place for a lot of info.

I've only done 1 gallon batches of this and I used a handful of raisins when I transferred to secondary. Word of advice- put them in a cheesecloth bag or something because it becomes a PITA when transferring- they get sucked up or stop your siphon and end up in the new vessel.

Following the recipe with 1 1\4 cups of sugar does it make a semi sweet wine?

No sir. I dont' know how much sugar you'd need to add, check around on here to see if someone posted how much would yield a semi sweet wine (or mead even).

Scratch that- Yooper probably knows.

I've made Hillbilly Wine, as I call it, many times. Sorry if the term offends, I tried Sons of the Soil Wine, but it just didn't stick.

It's dry, I like it that way though. The only problem was that it was a little thin- hence the raisins.

Has anyone used this recipe then distilled the product into cognac (assuming doing so is legal where you live of course). If so how'd it turn out?
