1 gal. juice
1 3/4 lb. sugar
2 1/2 tsp acid blend
1/2 tsp pectic enzyme
1/2 tsp energizer
1 campden
yeast


I just multiplied everything x5, per the book. Except sugar, 8 3/4 lb. seemed crazy to me so I put 4. Book did not specify yeast type so I used cotes des blanc.

Double check your juice container to make sure you don't see the words "sorbate" or "benzoate"!
