    Knocked this upo this afternoon and was bubbling within 30 minutes. Quite impressed. I had to remove 500ml from the DJ to avoid it overflowing;
    4l Lidl Pineapple juice from concentrate @99p a litre
    700g white sugar disolved in 500ml RO water
    teaspoon yeast nutrient
    Lalvin yeast

    Forgot to add any pectolase so will add in a few days once fermemntaion slows a bit. Should end up around 14% if it ferments out. May backsweeten with more juice and carb half the batch.

    Lidl sell freshly squeezed orange juice with bits for the same price. Has anyone tried a wine with this?

    The WOW I made with 1L of pineapple and 1L white grape juice + sugar produced one of the most active/vigorous fermentations I've ever seen.

    Therefore be prepared with your 4L of it! If you haven't done so already I'd ditch the airlock and rig up a blow off tube.

    Pineapple and Orange is even more dramatic, not to be attempted without putting the DJ in a tray and shielding surroundings from splatter!

    Fermentation finished a few days agao and it's starting to settle. After 3 days i topped it up with 500ml of the juice and sugar . after 2 more days i added some pectolase and nutrient and 200ml more of juice. Hopefully its going to be a nice dry pineapply wine for late summer.

    This has got down to 992. Think thats around 14/15% so not bad and can definitly taste the pineapple. Racked it and will have a taste in a few months.
