I suppose I could do that. It's super concentrated for sure! I probably have a full bottle of wine for each 375ml bottle!

If you are still interested in making it, post tour recipe, I might be able to make some suggestions.

Strong as in, it's very alcoholic. I watered the pomagranite juice down a little bit, so it would be less tart. It tastes pretty good though for not really trying hard. Gonna let it sit until Christmas. Excited to try it then.

If you want to continue on making wine, buy a hydrometer. This measures the specific gravity of your sugary liquid. Water measures 1.000, when you add sugar, the specific gravity is above 1.000. 1.090 will give you ~12%.
+1

Also, POM juice is extremely tart! Consider diluting it with another juice or something of the sort

Eh. I was kinda wanting it to be over the top. It was just an experiment. I'm actually making most of the bottles carbonated. Should be fun.

Or make a blueberry wie and blend them. This could be a great blending ingredient even if you never drink it straight. Since you don't wish to pry your face out of the back of your head... :-D
