I really don't know if your pointers helped or not, good of you to tackle the vague subject. But, seriously, I'm still laughing about the kook aid wine!! Kook aid? it enables/aids kooks to make their own wine? What are you trying to say? We are a bunch of kooks because we make cheap wine sometimes?

Great response you gave, sanitize and all that.

Yes, take a glass 1 gallon jug, 2 half gallon bottles of grape juice, boil about a cup or so of extra sugar to add to it, pour the juice into the jug, minus the amount to leave room for the extra sugar, plus leave maybe 4 inches head space, add some wine yeast. There ya go.

Added: check the juice you buy, pick one with at least 30g of sugar per serving, and still add more. The wine yeast will eat up the sugar fast, longer you leave it, more dry/less sweet it will be. Taste after a couple weeks, still to sweet, let it go longer to increase the ABV but at the same time, reduces sweetness. You can always add more sugar at any given point.

Forgot to mention airlock. In a pinch, sanitize a balloon and sewing needle, poke 6 or 7 small holes in the end of the balloon, the top portion, put the balloon over the top of the jug. You will be making your own pruno in no time flat!!

Wine yeast, not bread yeast. How long has your pruno been fermenting? Under your bunk, right?
