thanks jeep,
I was planning on using a niagra from welches (frozen). on your link I couldn't find how much volume finished wine those juice concentrates make. I plan on doing 6 gallons with a lb per gallon of barley. Now that I know if I just stir and give it some time (24 hrs?) i can dissipate the sulfites used in the welches.

If youve got sulfites in the welches your gona have to do some cuddiling with your wine.. Make a very strong starter out of your yeast and a portion of the wash.. Keep adding more and more of the wash to the starter untill it gets used to those eviel sulfites.. Also yes aeirate the wash as much as possible

how long would you wait? 24 hrs before pitching? stirring a few times a day hard, and introducing the must slowly. I have never used the welch concentrate before
