This is a very versitle wine. It can be tweaked easily.
I say follow the original recipe before you start tweaking it.
No need to adjust for the cranberry. Mix up the batch the way Lon told us!
Just substitute the amount of cranberry juice for water.
There is absolutely no reason to use the "reverse" method Darren just mentioned! It will work, but my point is...follow the original recipe first!
If you dont use a slurry from a previous batch, use a strong starter. It WILL go!
Do you make chocalate chip cookies and add the chips after it it's done?
Follow the RECIPE!!!!!
It has worked thousands of times this way. If you decide to tweak it before even doing it the way it was designed, you may not get alot of sympathy if it doesnt work out for you.
I have some ideas n variations, but you get the first one going and then we can talk. I am drinking one I made with ginger added to it!! Quite nice.
I just started my 6th batch of the summer today. The other 5 batches are going fast.it turned out fantastic. i shoulda started a 2nd batch allready lol
