Can i make a cranberry wine with 5 gallons of cranberry concentrate (Ocean's Spray) 2lbs of dextrose and montrachet?
would that work?any problems?
I searched the forums and did not find much help and was wondering if anyone had any information! thanks!

It would be good to know a recipe if that doesnt work from someone as well?!

I started a batch 2 weeks ago, very active fermentation compared to my Apfelwein. I used 5 Gal. "Western Family" cranberry juice (no preservitives) 2 Lb. corn sugar and Lalvin K1-V1116 yeast. No clue what it tastes like, but it will work. I call mine "Crapfelwein"

I have five gallons of cranberry juice (ocean spray), and 2 lbs of regular sugar with montrachet yeast and it's still bubbling after more than a month! I'm calling mine CRAN.
