I have visited the country of Belize, several times. They make a wine out of the Cashew apple inwhich the Cashew nut comes from. I am trying to make this wine from Cashew Apple Concentrate I purchased at the local Thai Market.

10 16oz. bottles of Cashew Apple Concentrate
10 pounds of Cane Sugar
7 teaspoons of yeast nutrient
1 packet of Lalvin Champagne yeast
and enough well water to fill a 6.5 gallon ( 25L ) carboy.

It's been fermenting about a week now.

make sure to oak the cashew wine

Oak the the wine for six month, before bottling.

I recently tried a bottle after aging for two years in the
bottle.
It came out excellent, just like the wine in Belize...

Congrat! Your work and patience have paid off handsomely.

I like these threads, which provide followup after long periods of time.
