Easiest way to make wine!
I found it the easiest way to make wine, using the concentrated grape juice. I recommend it.

Enjoyable Wine
I find it easier to make beer or cider than wine but this concentrate provided a favorable table wine.

Easy and flexible
This was my first attempt at a concentrate. I adjusted the directions a bit to make more concentrated and included a can of cherry purée. So far it seems to be coming along nicely though it's still aging with oak and completing MLF. Very nice flavor and I'm looking forward to completion!

California Concentrate Zinfandel
I have used Alexander's concentrates for years and have had good luck with them, always in addition to our garden or wild fruit (which seems to be in short supply and iffy quality all too often). The concentrates greatly help to fill in the flavor profiles of wines and help to get a ferment going well right off the bat not to mention you don't have to strain out so much mess after the primary fermentation.

Made a good Zinfandel
These are the next best thing to having real fruit. They keep your ingredients consistent, and are of good quality and make good wine. By adding a can to your kit it turns it into a high end Zin.

Quality base, it enhances a Zinfandel kit. It also lets me increase the wine volume, making up for that lost to trub so I can fill up my head space without Oxidation risk.

makes a good zinfandel
I added a can to a lower end zinfandel kit and it came out great. The flavor was fabulous and it have great body. I didn't need to adjust the acidity either. The wine now tastes like expensive wine that would retail for $25 a bottle.

Its good if used properly
I first used it in a 1 gallon test batch that I liked. Then I scaled up, using about 1 gallon of water per can. For $20 you can make 5 bottles of wine that would cost $12 - $18.

Makes a great 1.25 gallon batch
This makes a good red, but you can use too much water or you wont get the result you want. It has a good flavor and aroma, with good body which is to be expected form quality ingredients. I also like to use this to add to lower end kits to make them excellent full bodied wines._x000D_

Good concentrate
I made a good Zinfandel with this concentrate. Good aroma, flavor, and body with this. I use a gallon of water per can. I also use these kits to supplement some of the kits I buy. I also like to experiment and add or cut the batch with other things._x000D__x000D_

does it come with the receip on how to make the batch one gallon ?
A shopper on Nov 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No sorry, it only has directions for 3 and 5-gallon batches.
The can says use two cans for a 5 gallon batch. All the reviews say use one gallon of water per can. What's up with that? I was given two cans as a present. Will I get a decent wine if I make 5 Gallons like it says?
D B on Dec 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 2 cans of Concentrate to 11.5 cans of water. That is a little over 4 Gallons of water. I use Distilled water.This will make good wine.If finished wine is too Dry just add a little more sugar after you kill the yeast,if you are going to bottle it.I leave mine in Gallon Jugs.
This will be my first batch from concentrate. The details/instructions section here doesn't list anything. Can anyone tell me what additional components I'll need? I have the equipment but other than yeast what's needed? I'd like to order everything at once.

BEST ANSWER: For 5 gallons finished wine, I used 4 cans of concentrate. First I put 1 gallon of hot water in the fermenter. Then stirred in 4 tsp. Bentonite and 3 tsp. nutrient. Then added the four cans of zin concentrate, and cold water to 5-1/2 gallons. Starting gravity was 1.094. Let sit overnight. Next day add your yeast (I used Red Star Pasteur Red). After two weeks, final gravity was 0.996. After racking to a clean carboy, I added 4 oz. toasted French oak chips and let it sit for 3 months. Then racked off the oak, added Sulfite and Sorbate, and let clear in a cool place for 2 weeks before final racking and bottling. I did not need clearing agents, but you can always use them as a final step before bottling if needed.
