agreed. IIRC, are grape wines supposed to use very little water anyhow? i've only made concord from juice, but we only used ~3 gallons for a 7 gallon batch. was only going to be 1 for a 5 gallon batch, but the acid was too high. have not tasted it to speak for the flavor, but it's dark and i imagine it's full-bodied. we were wanting as much flavor as possible as we are making blends with it.Just took a look and 5 liters of juice to make 5 gallons of wine is not good, maybe a white but not a red wine.
It's probably crazy to be kicking this thread back up to the top nine months after it died of disuse, but since no one else who chimed in had actually made one, here goes:I was looking at thise and wondering, it appears that they are all Califonia concentrates, not as big as some of the other Kit producers...
I agree that the MM AJ is the only all juice. But some of the others are juice with concentrate and maybe a little water. I think Vineco Vinterra and Spagnols Premier Cru fall into this category.Im pretty sure only the Mosti Mondiale All Juice kits are all juice while others are juice and water so you dont have to add any water.
