Should I expect this to come out clear? Or should it look like the commercial mikes hard lemonade? I used a passion fruit concentrate.

I used apple/kiwi/strawberry and it was cloudy for a couple of weeks and was crystal clear at around the one month mark

Helly,

I basically copied your recipe today except I used Welch's white grape and raspberry concentrate. Do you have any other tasting notes other than tart? Did it finish dry/sweet?

Thanks!

I have found that the cranberry tartness mellows and it's been a really nice easy wine to drink after a couple months. I tried a batch that was red grape & cranberry mixed (1 can each for a 1 gallon batch) but I didn't like it as much. For me it was too thin and not a real full flavor. Fine for something to drink as table wine or to chill and drink a glass but so far the cranberry only is my favorite version of this. I should note that I haven't tried this with the white grape juice though. Raspberry sounds great, let us know how it turns out.

I've never done any with raspberry, but it sounds nice! so I can't give any tasting notes, but with this recipe I've never had it finish dry. If you want it drier you need to cut the sugar some.

You recommend stabilizing, what does that mean? Sorry but I'm a noob when it comes to wine being this is my first attempt. At the end of March it will be two months. Do I bottle at that point? How long does it have to sit in bottle before you recommend serving it? Do you have to add anything when you bottle it?
