Default advice needed on cheap orange wine

hi i am making a few gallons of cheap wine just because im bored waiting on my lager to brew i have used 4ltrs of fresh orange juice, 2/3kg of dextrose high alcohole wine yeast also added neary 1 tea spoone of nutriants when it started to ferment. what i need advice on is that the juice had bits in it and the bits are all swirling about in the fermenter i have read in a few places that bits in the wine are not a gd idea will this still work ok. ? it is still fermenting and i am glad i tryed thing i never expected fermentation would cause so much movement and the bits make it more visable...

Yeah your bits are ok. I'm interested to see how yours turns out, because my recent orange wine was absolutely horrid.

i am thinking it might not taste so great specialy due to the fact i added much more sugar than needed also i appoligize it was tropical juice but when i tasted the extra stuff when started making it it tasted just like orange juice i will let you know in a few weeks how it turns out. oh one more thing in the shop the cartons where in fridge next to the milk whats stopping my juice from going off?

you might be right but its not like i used cheap ingrediants so fingers crossed and its all about learning more about the process of fermentation without wasting slightly more expensive ingrediants but i will update post in a few weeks to let you know how it goes...

i searched for a recent orange wine thread.

had some commercial orange wine from korea. it was 13% alc and overall quite drinkable, i remember a minty/toothpaste taste with a fair bit of orange. i'd personally never brew it, but if you do, give it some care and see if you can make something tasty.
