    I'm keen to try elderberry juice if I don't find wild berries soon. Anyone tried elderberry and banana wine? I did, forty years ago. It was like a shop-bought red, with body and taste. I do NOT have the recipe!

    Has anyone made a WOW Gewurtztraminer?

    Hi all

    I've been struggling this issue, and have spotted this...

    I used a don simon peach and white grape juice to make a "lilt" WOW that was excellent, but since I made it u can no longer buy the juice.

    Has anyone tried using tinned peaches in grape juice as a WOW ingredient?

    If so would u remove some peaches and just use the juice in case their flavour was too pronounced!

    E.g.. 4 tins but only the peaches from 2 of the tins blended and chucked in with other ingredients.

    Cheers!

    Members generally use cartons of juice so i don't think you will get an answer why not give it a try and see how t turns out.

    Has anyone managed to find out why there is a white grape juice shortage in the first place?

    Red grape juice makes decent wine.

    Yes, it turns out great, I started a Rose' using the tesco forest fruit juice from a few posts up, really dark in the demi, chugging away nicely.I'm going to buy a ltr of white grape concentrate (£12)as it should do 4,x1 gallon brews.Ive never used wgj so worth a go just to compare.athumb..

    What is the intended use of the Wilko grape juice? I have been adding it to a few of my mixed juice wines along with water just to top up the Demi John. I am thinking it wouldn’t work on its own

    I was going to make a gallon brew using 1.5 ltr apple juice and 250ml white concentrate in place of 1ltr wgj ( no longer available in supermarket) hopefully make an ok white wine.

    The Wilko grape juice concentrate description is below, when WGJ becam scarce members suggested you could use the full 220ml bottle in place of a litre of WGJ I don't know if anyone ever did.

    I know I am repeating myself but give red grape juice a try it makes a light coloured Rose wine but to me it tastes somewhere between a white and Rose.


    This Italian white grape concentrate is an ideal addition to your country wine recipe to add extra body and roundness and generally improve the final flavour and finish. Perfect for lighter wine styles such as elderflower.

    Latest creation, bit of an experiment

    2 x 500 grm bags frozen mixed berries from Lidl
    1 x punnet raspberries
    1 x jar clear honey
    450 grm sugar
    Lemon juice
    Black tea
    Yeast
    Yeast Nutrient
    Pectolase
    Glysterine

    Probably best one yet but only if you like your wine sweet

    Almost all of my wines are made from supermarket juice. (best thing supermarkets have ever done.)
    Its just outrageously cost effective.
    A smaller amount is made from local berries.
