If you look at the start of this thread everyone was using 800g plus approximately 250g for the juice (2 litres) so we called it 1100g for 13%, the only way to know for sure is to take a hydrometer reading when you start and finish (even then its not 100% accurate as you never fill the DJ when you start and top up later).

You have a wine somewhere between 13% and 15%, to be honest i now only use a total of 900g as it the original put SWMBO to sleep after a couple of glasses.

She only had a couple of glasses of the 13% before she fell asleep especially if she had been on the late shift, to be honest i wasn't far behind if i had been up early for work, we find the 10% version much less sleep inducing

Hi I think I have just made a mess up> I am about to make my rose but a bit stronger this time than I did last time. But when I done the sugar instead of 800g + the juice sugar which would be approx 10.050 I forgot to do it on this mix and made up 1200 gm of sugar forgetting to add the Juice sugar which would bring it up to 1450 Gm So gods knows what alcohol level it will be. Can anybody help or any advice on this besides anybody drinking this should straight away go to the nearest hospital

Whilst the yeast may give up anyway, what stage are you at? Water down perhaps?

Options? Try it and see what happens? Redo the sugar solution properly and then add it?

Another way of adding your sugar is to throw it into the juice etc and beat the hell out of it with a wand until it dissolves. Dispenses with the need to heat etc.

So I've sampled my first 2 Wows with like 1400gms of sugar in them and they are the alcohol equivalent of crystal meth but drinkable when diluted with lemonade so will keep them for nice summer days (if we get any) as the underlying taste isn't bad. I put another couple on...anyone tried/made any of the below?

2×Asda Clementine
1xAsda Pineapple
400gs sugar

1xAsda Apple
1xAsda Apple & Mango
1xAsda RGJ, Strawberry & KiwI
400gs sugar

That would still not be strong enough for the old Memsahib I mean she drinks Absinthe for crying out loud When you said you put 1400 grams of sugar did that include 250grms of sugar that is already in the juice when you buy it
