I'm going to attempt a grape/pineapple "adult beverage" (don't want to offend or confuse anyone and call it a cider). In going to make it a 4 gallon batch and my process is going to be very similar to one of my cider batches. Wish me luck.

So far I've added 2.5 gallons of the grape juice, 1.5 gallons of pineapple juice, 4 cans of grape juice concentrate and 2 tsp. of pectic enzyme. I went with Wyeast 4766 and will add that also when it's ready.
