I appreciate that it has been said that we will not be able to make a red wine from supermarket juices but it would be jnteresting to see how close you have all actually come to replicating a half decent 'house red'. Here is my first effort using a recipe linked to by Chippy some time ago and known as Richard's Red. Don't know how the colour will show in the picture but there it is on the right and significantly different to the Purple Rose on the left. I wonder how it will turn out! :wink: I did this one with 3litres of Waitrose Merlot Grape 100 % juice, a can of Youngs Red wine enricher and water to the shoulder. 500g sugar and the usual pectinase, glycerin citric, tannin, nutrient and used Youngs Burgundy yeast. Not the cheapest of WoWs and with a starting SG of 1.116 could be a bit hefty! Fingers crossed.
