Default Newbie Q's

I made wine 20 years ago with fruit. But my 18 yr old son has convinced me
to get back into winemaking. (Soon beer too) I bought a basic kit from the and also purchased a lg #10 can of "Vintner's Harvest
Raspberry" concentrate. I found the directions vague on excatly how much
concentrate to use for a 1 gallon batch. If this can, can make as much as 5
gal, then would I just use 19oz? The directions call out a 3 gal and 5 gal
batch's with the whole can. Any feedback would be welcome.

Could any one point out a FAQ link for this NG?


I have used their Strawberry product before. I made 3 gal batches
from each can and the result was outstanding. Good color, plenty of
body and a great nose... It pulled a first place in berry wine in our
State Fair. I have not attempted to make five gallons per can.
