Let me ponder this for a while.

Yuri would it be possible to get a discount if I bought EVERY product you had featured there?
I'm thinking the poster would go great in the dorm.

Don't dump it. If you believed it had some promise when you made it, give it a chance. let it age and see if the bad flavors go away, and some good raspberry ones come out.

The markup is already at the bare minimum, so it's discounted as much as Zazzle allows. If you look around the web, you might find some Zazzle coupon codes that will work.

Those half-gallon and gallon jugs make great experiment containers without tying up a carboy.

I tried some small batches with (off the top of my head) something like 33% and 25% cranberry. Evil, nasty.

So last time I backed down to 10% and 5% cranberry. The 10% was ok, not much cranberry. The 5% has promise, and actually tastes more cranberry-y. Or however you'd say that.

I bottled them all flat and will let them sit for a year and see what happens.

You could stabilize it and back-sweeten. The off taste may just need a bit of sweet to bring out the rasberry. Sugar to fruit wines is like salt is to food!

Whatever you do, don't dump it. Always remember the golden rule - it will get better
