Thanks all.
I tried to take an hydrometer reading at the start but it was so dence that the hydromiter hardly sank to the shoulders so i couldnt get a reading.
It still smells a lovely fresh orange but i can only smell it if i put my nose to the top of the airlock.
I will try the mead another time though it does sound good but ill complete this one first.
I dont mind how strong it is but i guess itll be quite potent. I just hope it dont get sour.
And yes its still bubbling away lol Many thanks for all the helpand advise peeps

My Tangerine wine... not a lot of help... I have been meaning to pull a bottle out of cellar and give it a go. Was bottled in May'11.

The Orange is still bubbling but very slowly now so iv started a diffrent one whilst im waiting for it.
Iv done an appple attempt. Its about 6 pints of pure aple juice with about 3 pounds of brewing suger, a little black tea, a hand full of raisins and some chopped up Granny Smith with a white wine yeast.
Its been bubbling like Bill Ho for a few days now and smells lush.
Any thoughts on this one please ? Shall i just do it the same as the Orange please ?

Yes Daz! That sounds to me like an Apfelwein - there is a sticky about it in the cider forum that may help you out. Any high-proof (e.g. wine yeast) apple concoctions usually take a few months before they get to be really nice.

My apple wine has been bubbling away for 5 weeks now but has almost come to a stop and only bubbles once every minute or so but it is still very very cloudy and the raisins are still floating on the top.
I used 1.5 KG of brewing suger and a gallon of fresh pure apple juice with a white wine yeast.
The orange wine is the same very cloudy and almost stopped bubbling all together.

Any advise please ? Am i doing anything wrong please ? What sould i do next please ?

So here is my update,
I just racked off the apple and orange wines into 2nd demijons and had a little taste of both.
The apple wine is still bubbling very slowly and tasts like rocket fuel and the orange wine had stopped bubbling and tastes like very sweet oranges but very very sweet.
I added some water to top up the orange wine as there was a lot of sediment and iv put some more rasins in with a few bits of orange and added another yeast but this time a white wine yeast.
It is starting to bubble again now.
Am i pissing in the wind or on the right track please ?
