What fruits are best to ferment
 
Complete novice has started fermenting orange juice and a mixture of orange
juice and sliced apple. Are these good fruits to go for or would I get
better results from other fruits?

Also I would be grateful to know very roughly how much sugar to how much
liquid produces what percentage of alcohol? Thanks.

Midway down the page is a chart listing amount of sugar in a gallon or added
to a gallon of water for percentage of alcohol.
You will also find recipes for any type of fruit listed on the web site.

Orange juice should have a Brix of ~10.7 and an SG of 1.057. It will ferment
dry at 7.82 ABV. You can add sugar to it to increase both the SG and the ABV.

I'm not a big fan of fermented Orange Juice.

I've had very good reviews on my pear wine. I've also made apple, elderberry and quince wines.
