    Anyone else tried this white grape powder?? Just put a 5 lt one on using it for the first time, smells nice.
    Bought off eBay for £15 comes with free yeast and nutrient too. You need 460g to make 23 ltrs and 4kg sugar, so scaled it down to 5ltr for a first attempt. IMG_20190513_145319_2.jpg

    My results with the white on it's own were not great so it got used to add a little vinosity to fruit wines and that worked well.
    The red made a drinkable wine for the money better than the £20 - £25 kits I'd tried and just £8.5 for 23l (plus sugar).

    I made a rosehip and and mango wine that when back sweetened was really nice just using the powder.

    There's a long thread here that relates to the grape powder (red mostly).

    Interesting thread that one led zep, I don't hold out much hope for my white after reading though. One post did mention it gets better with age but this ain't gonna happen with my Mrs.

    My go to cheap white is just tesco value tinned peaches min 12 cans but more is better sugar and 2l of apple juice made to 23l. You can add tannin/tea, sultanas to taste but I like it back sweetened to bring out the peach.

    I put them and the syrup in a 10l plastic bucket with a lid, add three tsp of pectolase and blend with a hand blender and leave for 24hrs. Then it's just in to a 25l F.V. with sugar and apple juice topped up to 23l with water.

    The red and rose are good, the white is a bit trickier. I've tried it as per instructions, took an age to clear (I don't use finnings). The body improved with age and ended up OK. I tried it with 50% more grape powder, not good. Tried again with a bit of citric, not good. The latest Gallon has some pectic in, to help clear and looks OK but is early days.
