Default has anyone ever seen this stuff before?

I was at my local international market in this stuff caught my eye the only things in it are sugar, juice and citric acid. Anyone here ever tried to make wine out of it?

You could, but wouldn't it be more cost effective to buy juice or berries?

the bottle is $5 and the sugar content is pretty high. 26g of sugar per ounce according to the label so about 3 cups of sugar per bottle.

seems like itd be about the same as making a wine from concentrate.

i think it would probably be awesome for backsweetening.

they had a few flavors too. i think ill try to make a gallon to see how it works. think one or two bottles for a gallon worth?

also juice or berries would be way more expensive than this stuff.

I would say go for it I have my second batch of wine just using grape juice frozen concentrate. I also added even more sugar. If you do that though add some yeast energizer. You will get some strong stuff.

so i was right. one bottle of syrup came in at 1.08 when made up to a gallon. added a little extra from a second bottle to get an sg of 1.09. 1/2 teaspoon of nutient and pectic enzyme plus d47 yeast.

That REALLY looks good! One of my favorite wines in Pom Blueberry, even though I am not fond of blueberries in their natural state. I think I was reading that Yooper made cranberry wine out of canned cranberries you get at the holidays.
