    Wine from Grapefruit Juice

    I just aquired about 30 litres of pink grapefruit juice. It's the shelf stable kind, just past its expiration date, but still tastes ok. There's no sorbates listed in on the label, so I think I'm good to go. A quick googling turned up a few recipes, but they all seem to use the skins or...

    Hi; I've been making wine and beer for about 20 years. Mostly from kits and concentrates, but I have experimented with some fruit wines and ciders from scratch. I've just gotten the space to expand my hobby, and I have a Kegerator with equipment for making force carbonated beverages.
