5/3/2008 -- how much volume does one of these kits produce?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: This is not a kit, per se, but a large can of berries and juice. To make wine, you would need to add sugar, yeast and some other additives. Typically, one can is used to make 5 gallons of wine.

11/3/2006 -- What would the average alcohol content be for wine made with your blueberry fruit wine base recipe?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: About 11.5% by volume.
3/4/2006 -- I keep hearing from different sources that fruit wines should be consumed within a couple years because they will go bad. Is this true? What is meant by "go bad?" What is different between grapes and other fruits that affects the shelf life?Thanks.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That's the problem with "lots of sources". Everyone seems to have a different opinion. Here is one more.Made and stored properly, fruit wines can age gracefully, and get even better for years."Going bad" is a relative term. Not much meaning. I would only say a wine has gone bad if it had turned to vinegar, or had oxidized.Fruits other than grapes are no different with repsect to shelf life.
3/4/2006 -- I am considering making wine with your fruit base, probably blueberry. All of my equipment is sized for six gallon batches. Would I be better off to use two cans of your fruit base or one can with one or more bottles/cans of your fruit concentrate?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Personally, I would go with two cans. You will get lots more fruit flavor that way. Cut down on the sugar accordingly is all.
1/29/2006 -- I wanted to know if this wine base blueberry what is it + to as far as fresh blueberrys or is it consintrate?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It is blueberries, packed into a can. Not concentrate.
3/22/2005 -- I'm using Blackcurrants as a fruit base,and having just read the recipe in the Q&A's section and was curious to hear suggestions on the juice concentrations and nutrient type as I was intending to make a heavy one.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We don't sell a blaccurrant fruit base.
10/10/2004 -- A friend of mine is into making wine at home in his spare time. I asked him what it would take to make me some fruity wines, perhaps a blueberry or blackberry wine. He said I would need a fruit puree enough to make 5 gallons. My main question is this, would I be better off to purchase the Oregan fruit puree or the wine fruit base of my choice? How long does it usually take ship and what forms of payment do you accept?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I would go with the fruit wine bases. They are larger than the cans of puree, and are made for wine. A recipe is on each can.Shipping time depends on where you live(?)...typically, ground shipment takes 5-7 business days if you are east of the Mississippi, and less if you are closer to us. We are located in Everett, WA.We accept VISA, Mastercharge, American Expresss, Discover, Paypal, and if you mail your order in we take checks, money orders and even CASH!
8/2/2004 -- i was looking for a plum fruit base & came across your complete package for wine making for fruit bases. does it come with instructions on how much of each ingredient is needed & would i then be able to buy that & then 3 cans of fruit base to make 15 gallons of wine? how much sugar is needed?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The fruit bases come with a recipe (instructions) on each can. Recipes (5 gallons)typically call for:one can of fruit base6 cans of water (4.5 gallons)11 lbs of table sugar7 tsp Acid Belnd3 tsp Yeast Nutrient3 tsp Pectic Enzyme1 tsp Tannin5 tsp bisufite solution (potassium bisufite mixed with water)1 pckg wine yeast 2.5 tsp potassium sorbate to stabilize
2/2/2004 -- Do your wine bases come with a receipe for that particular base and what additives are needed.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes they do.Each can of fruit base also comes with a couple of different ways to make each one.
10/31/2003 -- Instead of ordering your peach wine base, would a large can of peaches from the grocery store work just as well?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Probably not. Most have been sweetened AND treated with preservatives that would prevent it from fermenting properly.
10/17/2003 -- Can you take one on these bases and use half the can in the 3 gallon kit and save the other part for the next batch? How about the other wine kits?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, you can do that, but be sure to seal up the container well. Tupperware works well for this, but something similar is good. Refrigerate it also. The idea is to prevent contamination, oxygen and wild yeasts from getting to it until you are ready.
7/28/2003 -- Even though you say one unit of fruit base will make 5 Gal. if I use one and a half or two units will I get a richer flavor and a fuller body wine?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, absolutely! Just be sure to cut down on the sugar a bit. Shoot for a 1.090 (or so) specific gravity.
6/23/2003 -- Is one unit of base enough to make 5 gallons of wine? What is the cost of shipping?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes; along with sugar, yeast etc. For a really FULL flavored wine, we recommend using two cans.The cost of shipping depends on where you live (not available to me) and how you want it shipped. You can determine the shipping cost, however, by adding the item to your online shopping cart, and then clicking on "Determine Shipping and Sales Tax". No sales tax is charged on out of state orders.
