I started a two gallon batch of wine using Ocean Spray Craisins. I used a recipe for dried cranberries. It is still in the primary so I do not have any information on it yet. I'll up-date as soon as I test. The per gallon cost for the craisin wine is less than the cost for the raisin wine I plan to start on Friday.

Sounds good. Keep in mind Cranberries have natural benzoate in it and it might give you some trouble fermenting. If you run into any problems of course, give a shout.

How about posting the recipe for us?

It's fermenting along quite well. I plan to transfer it into the secondary on Wednesday. I'll post the recipe then and provide the test results but it was just one for dried cranberries.

The recipe:

3 pounds of Craisins
5 pounds of sugar
2 tsps each of pectic and yeast nutrient
couple of Campden tablets
yeast
water up to two gallons

My ph is low at 3.4 with the a range of 3.6 - 4.2. I did not adjust and will test the next time I rack.
