To each their own with ingredients. Did you add yeast? You can make wine without yeast but its risky as to if it will ferment and to what wll come of it when it does. You can also make wine without a hydrometer but you or we will not be able to know what you have made if any by doing so. A hydrometer is a floating tool which ill tell you how much alc you can and have made by telling you how much sugar is in there in the beginning and when its done fermenting thus telling you ho much alc you have made without this tool you are asking us to do the impossible.

I wil raise a glass for its funeral.
Kidding aside please ck here beofre you try another to get some advise. Like what said you will need certail chemicals ( k-meta, wine yeast and sorbate) and equipment (hydrometer).
