I have 1 more question, can I use some more of the store bought concentrate to top up with? This the old orchard frozen concentrate. Primary Fermentation is done. SG is 1.00

Sure that shouldn't be a problem. If you're keeping track of your gravity to calculate the ABV you'll want to make sure the juice you top up with is the same SG as your wine started with before fermentation.

awesome. I'm probably going to start a cran-grape or mixed berry batch once I get paid here soon.

pom juice at food lion?? What state are you in? I've never seen this in NC.

And I'm sure someone around has done a pom wine if you look around. It'll work the same as these directions (substituting juice for concentrate).

I have a question about my cranberry wine from orchard farm frozen juice. Its been about 2 months cleared nicely. Thought I would back sweeten today. Siphoned into a glass to try some. Took a sip and there is not a taste of the juice at all to it. Any thing I can do about that? Does it need to sit longer? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

If its just a simple wine from fruit concentrate, my advice is to let it age atleast a few months, if still nothing then backsweeten and add a small amount of salt with you sugar[ im talking a couple pinches] salt helps bring flavors out in cooking and wine.
