I started a concord grape wine yesterday. I followed instructions per the Winemaker's recipe handbook and found that mid-way through adding my ingredients to the crushed grapes, the juice started turning a brownish color versus the pink/red color it started as. Is this normal? Will I get the red color back since it's fermenting with the skins?

Yes it is normal with a concord. Mine this year stayed a really nice purple color but mine last year changed to a more brown color. Last years batch cleared just fine. We sweeten ours at the end a little bit too.

It cleared red. Not as purple as the year before but not an off looking color either
