    Add juice to wine kit?

    Checking acid and ph levels would be a great next step. Thank you!

    Add juice to wine kit?

    Thank you. I like the 5 gal idea, but all 5 carboys I have are 6 gallons. Tonight I added 3 litres of Newman's Own 100% grape juice to a cheap shiraz kit, then added water to about the 24 litre mark. The SG came in at 1.095, up from 1.090 which seems usual for these kits.

    Add juice to wine kit?

    Can 100% juice (e.g., grape, cherry) be added to a cheap wine kit during primary fermentation to add flavour and compensate for expected loss due to racking? E.g., Add water to 22 litre mark (instead of 23), and add 2 litres of juice? Or, add even more juice and less water to fortify cheap kit...
