So some comments:

I made a 1 gallon primary and a 5 gallon to give it some room.

The SG was only 1.060, so the little guy I bumped a bit with some maple syrup.

I have nothing in the house to bump the 5 gallon and felt I had to pitch yeast today, so I was wondering what would happen if I plopped a can of white grape juice concentrate tomorrow night if that would be cool.

Thoughts?

That seems like it'd be ok. I've never done that, but I don't see any harm.

I thought the same thing.

I do wonder what the maple will do for the flavor on the little batch.

Bottling mine tonight. Started the batch on 7/26. I added 4 oz of strawberry extract because wifey liked that sample much better. Just in time to give a few bottles for xmas.

Wow- that's really beautiful! It seems crystal clear and a nice golden yellow color. I'm glad it came out so well!

Well, it looks good. It's tart and the strawberry is not very obvious. I'm bringing you and Bob a bottle tomorrow to judge before I give any away. I need the feedback. I know when my beers suck but I am no judge of wine.

So glad to see this. Mine is that same color. I've yet to bottle it. I've made it as far as getting my bottling bucket out and my bottles out of storage

Just bottled mine tonight. It's definitely not sickening sweet like the guy's I had last year. It's still kind of sweet for my tastes, but I'm not really a sweet wine fan. I think if I do it again next year, I'll add something for some tartness. All in all, I was pleasantly surprised when tasting. Much better than I thought it'd turn out. This stuff looked like water while bottling. The tiniest tinge of gold when poured.
