Most females I know like their wines slightly sweet. I think I need to find a way to sweeten this up but not make it taste funky at the same time.

Ah those are the best juices! I used to buy them all the time when I lived in Cape Town, practically grew up on them. Ceres and Liquifruit.

Wish I could get em here

Add a splash of Sprite - That will sweeten it up. You can also use Splenda - it's non-fermentable so you won't have to worry about the yeast having an extra snack.

I think using 7up or sprite would work. Good too since the alcohol is rather strong in this cider. Thanks for the suggestion.

I have to agree. But I had drank before Harvey Fresh (Australian brand) and in my opinion, it taste better. More "appley" so to speak. However, both are the best I can find here in Singapore.

I'm making an apfelwein with 5 gallons of apple juice, 1 gallon of half pomegranate half white grape juice, and two pounds of corn sugar. I'm using the same wine yeast, but I think that it will be very good.

For me, I added 1kg of dextrose instead of 1lb of dextrose. It is pretty strong wine I am having now. Thus, I think it will need a little more aging for it to really shine.
