Stir them in boiling water just don't get to hot or the sugars will caramelize

We are making a apple jolly rancher wine also and we put them in a fementationg bucket and added hot water and kept stirring.. it eventually melts down and turns liquid. We followed the skittle wine recipe and now it has stopped fermentating to early. So we need to get it going again any ideas from anyone?
Good luck SMH200

You didn't say where (s.g.) it stopped, but maybe try warming it up some, some nutrient or energizer, stir the crap out of it to add oxygen. Any one of these can make it quit fermenting. Last thing to try is pitch another batch of yeast, probably with a good starter. Arne.

when i have melted them down, i used a double boiler system....put your jolly ranchers into a pot, with a small amount of water in comparison, and put that into anoter pot of boiling water....stir frequently and they'll dissolve without the worry of caramelizing...
