dunno and it might be gone before I bottle it.
This is a lovely wine, easily brewed and I sneak a cup at a time, Strictly for Quality control purposes! I hope there is some left for bottling!

Need a little more
I've used this concentrate a few times. 3 cans should be the minimum for 5 gallons if you age in a barrel. If you want more body... then added another can. The supplied recipe does work, but I have my own for this for my own liking.

A great Merlot
I used this merlot concentrate to make 5 gallons of wine. i used 3 cans ,fermented it ,racked it 3 times. I let it develop for a year and it came out great. Hase a great flavor, smooth taste,deep,dark, red color and has been getting exlent reviews. My second bath is 3 mounths into ageing and will start another in 3 mounths.Wish i hadn't waited a year to start second bath.

targeted flavor
The Alexanders concentrates are above par. I can get the specific flavor I want to target in my wine. One can makes a quality one gallon Merlot. This quality concentrate benefits form aging and I let it go 15-18 months before tasting.

do i add sugar ?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It is just the grape juice concentrate and isn't pre-mixed like the kits. The label lists their recommended instructions/method that include the following additional ingredients needed: water, sugar, yeast nutrient, bentonite, wine yeast and tartaric acid/acid blend. Of course, you can also use your own recipe/method if you want to.
