Guys, before you get down on the poster, I do believe that Chrisy is referring to themselves as the one having a "thick head" meaning a little dense, that's why, the next part of the phrase is a direct question about when to add the yeast.

I think we would say something akin to "I'm a little dense with this wine stuff, when do you add the yeast?" or "I'm a little confused by all this, when do you add the yeast."

Or maybe, "You have someone with a thick head [here] Peter, when do you add..." or perhaps, "Peter, you're dealing with a person with a thick head here, please clarify as to when to add the yeast."

Methinks you're a little quick on the trigger here gang, I read the poster as being self-abasing, not attacking the answerer. The "you" who has a thick head they're referring to is themselves.

Maybe it's because I've been watching a lot of Masterchef Australia/New Zealand that I'm seeing the linguistic differences.

Oh, I totally misread that! You're right, and I am totally wrong.

I see what you are saying, and I must apologize profusely to the OP. I read it as an insult to someone else, and not in regards to themselves. I'm sorry for ME being thick-headed. I am very sorry!

Regardless, one of the gentlest ways of preparing a good juice, suitable for fermenting, is to cover the fruit with boiling sugar solution, 15% to 20%, and allow the flavours and colours to be extracted osmotically overnight. This is a good technique for both beginner and advanced wine making because the fruit is only blanched, avoiding evaporation of delicate aroma components, and avoiding solubilizing pectic acids and other things which will cause cloudy wine.

I think that's "WHITE" grape juice frozen concentrate, not "wine" juice concentrate. Same thing as frozen orange juice concentrate, just with white grape juice instead of orange juice.

You should be able to find it in most grocery stores, it's pretty common.

If you can't find it, you could add chopped raisins. The most common raisins are actually made from white grapes. They'll add a bit of body, some sugar, a bit of acid & maybe a wee bit of tannin. Just pulse them a few times in a food processor & add them to the must with the rest of the fruit. A dose of pectic enzyme will help to break 'em down.
Regards, GF.

I think that you might be able to get various fruit cordials? I've read that the British don't have frozen concentrate readily available either and they say that cordials are pretty much the same thing except theyre not frozen. Maybe this is available in NZ?
