What concentrates did you use by the way? I've never done a strawberry one.

One batch is grape concentrate mixed with cranberry strawberry juice and the other is grape concentrate mixed with raspberry lemonade

Mine tend to end up sweet and thick with flavor but still strong. Seems you may be shy on the concentrate if the alcohol is coming through so strongly. hmm...

That may be the case. This was just a tester and I wouldn't mind tossing it if it doesn't come out right. In the cranberry strawberry batch, I used one concentrate and one 64 oz container of juice. It's only been 2 or 3 weeks so I'm going to let it finish up and see if the flavors blend a bit better

I'm going to try a test batch today of 1 gallon. Has anyone used a different sugar then white, like corn sugar?

I've tried brown sugar with apple concentrate, that's about it.

Hit it with a little energizer/nutrient and stir up the yeast on the bottom. Should be enough to get it fermenting again for a while.
