Patience is rewarded
This juice makes good wine if used as small batches. I use two cans for 2.5 gallon batches which yields 12 bottles. Lalvin 212 works well to keep the color dark and gives a nice texture however it needs at least a year to mature. Less than this and it will taste very green but if you wait your patience will be rewarded.

i like it as a one gallon batch just the way it is. after many experiments i found it was almost to easy. its perfect just the way it is as a one gallon the acidity is the same as the wine expert kits and turn out the same. i only found a few yeasts that worked really good with zinfandell red star premier cuvee and icv gree ,yeasts for the cabernet do not work very good with zinfandel...the icv gree took more ageing than the cuvee

how many cans will need?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 1 can works well for a 5 gallon batch. It finishes sweet. Clarify and rack properly to minimize the solids. I finish off the batch by adding cherry brandy before bottling....but that's by personal taste.
Just wondering how to make this, do i need to add pectic enzyme,yeast energizer, acid blend.. ect? thanks!

BEST ANSWER: My experience in making a 5 gal. batch was to use (2) cans of concentrate. In using Lalvin yeast I add a yeast nutrient but no acid blend or pectic enzyme. Be sure and bring your specific gravity up to 1.90 before adding the yeast. Before bottling taste a sample (of course). If it seems a bit watery (to your taste) add cherry or apricot brandy.
If this is concentrate how much should it be diluted?

BEST ANSWER: I used the concentrate with the amount of water instructed in the Northern Brewer video for the home made Wine kit. I followed it to a T and it came out great.
