I'm, also, VERY curious about this. I have been thinking of doing some one gallon experiments. Any thoughts?

I am planning on doing a 3 gallon batch tomorrow unless i hear otherwise. i asked Joe at the Marion, IA HBS, he said he's not sure, but it will probably take a while to clear out, then a while for the alcohol to blend taste with the fruit. But he has not done it personally.

I had found a basic recipe online and I have two gal fermenting right now. I'm anxious to see how they turn out!

I'm sure improvements could be made, but for 5$ or so, it's worth a try.

I'm also planning on using juice concentrates in some future meads... Keep me informed on how this goes.

I will, I'll keep an exact recipe as well.
Any suggestions on what juice to use?
I think peaches make great wine, but strawberries, cherries, etc. I'm unsure of.

the link you sent, moscoeb, it says sugar and acid, sounds like that is back to the beer brewing where you melt sugar into water with citric acid to break the sucrose? down to dextrose? and fructose? i'm not sure the exact breakdown, but that might be close.

Anyways think you could kill some time in melting the sugar with acid?

Huh?!
I'm a noob to all of this, I may be wrong, but I just threw it all in, shook the crap outta it, and pitched the yeast!! If there is a better way, please educate me. I'm still learning every batch!

We've been having a discussion around types of concentrates to use over here as well:

Cool, I'll peruse through there and get some more ideas. I'm not expecting award winning wine, but it I hope it's decent tasting and it is easy to make.
