Youre gonna have to pull some out and dilute with water if energizer and nutrient didnt work.

So I did a gallon batch of this in January. I just added the sorbate and campden tablet. It has been sitting in a dark closet for 4 months, it tasted great and strong. I made a noob mistake and did not get the fg reading. Tomorrow I plan to bottle so I'll get the reading tomorrow. My question, how long should it sit in the bottle before drinking? It seems like its ready to drink now.

I always fill my cup from the spigot while I'm bottling. In a fit good state of mind by the end of the process.

Status update: After repitching yeast (starter) didn't work, I tried the dilution trick. Saw no changes after 24 hrs. I left town for 6 days and came home to find the airlock bubbling every 10 seconds or so. Seems to be going again, just slowly. I took a gravity reading and it's down to 1.021...almost there. I'm going to check it in a few days to see how it's doing.

Any ideas as to why adding new yeast to wine with a gravity of 1.030 didn't work? It shouldn't be an issue with high sugar content at this point and I don't think it's a viability issue either. I'm stumped.

I assume that yeast have a hard time starting out in an alcohol medium?

Hmm, not sure on that one. Only once did a new yeast not start it back up for me. And that time i did the dilution.

I have a quick question about the Welch's grape juice wine. I tried it the other day and it seems that it's very watery. I have fermented it and in the process of clearing, how do I add body to it?

I'm making this tomorrow and will use 5 cans of red grape concentrate and 5 cans of blueberry pie filling. other than the blueberry pie filling the rest will be per your recipe. Question: do I dump the pie filling in the bucket, then pour the rest in over it?should I stir it really well? Also I plan to rack into a carboy for the secondary...will there be pie filling on the bottom that I need to plop on over into the carboy? how does that work? This is my first time making wine so I'm unsure. And I cannot thank you enough for making this recipe that is easy for new people like me!
