Not sure if thread is still active but having read all 39 pages twice I am starting a 3 gallon batch now.
Used method of freezing and grinding skittles in food processor until a powder then added to boiling water and it was quite simple and no goop hassle with stirring to dissolve. Freezer for three hours to garden and skim wax off top repeated twice but some stlll remains. Using welches white grape peach concentrate. Hoping for some springtime skittles wine!

Also measured out precisely equal amounts of each color. Pictures show ground up skittles and after first and final freeze to remove wax.

Having good luck so far with a very active fermentation. Did foam ovér on me and was thankful for prior post having mentioned this happening as my foam over was with it in the sink!

Also love your name! Laura Mars was a Faye Dunaway movie back in the 70's about a photographer.
I think it was called The Eyes of Laura Mars or something like that

I know this thread is older, but I'm sure there are others like me who go back and read these.

I picked out all the green Skittles. They're apple now. Apple skittles are gross. And instead of Welch's grape, I used limemade, 8oz per gallon, to make up for the lack of lime skittles. It's bubbling away, it tastes awesome, just the right amount of limeyness without overpowering the skittles, and it's pink. I waited a day to pitch yeast because the limeade had some preservatives.
