Sounds like some good wines. Are these Welches mixes?

How is the peach?
I don't use kits or concentrates so I'm always interested in how the fresh fruit wines do.

Greg, I have made quita a few wines with frozen concentrates. I particularly like DOLE brand. My very first wine was a Pineapple Orange Mango made with the DOLE brand, actually want to do it again now that I am a bit more knowledgable.

Just make sure it is 100% juice. Juice "cocktail" just aint gonna do it.

peach isn't easy. we have done it 3 times. it's hard to clear and the acid is usually pretty high. this last batch was great though. the first was too high in acid (used to use pH strips). the second was ok, but nothing impressive.
