6/21/2015 – I am making blueberry wine, and have been using red concentrate at the end right before bottling. I was wondering if I could use white grape concentrate instead of the red? I have good color in the blueberry so I was not sure if the white would work.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Certainly. It will work just fine, just expect a little less color in the end product.

10/14/2009 – I am making a wine from my homegrown grapes and they are not going to be fully ripe. I know it would be best to use fully ripe fruit, but it's not going to happen this year. Would using this grape concentrate to bring up brix be any better than just using sugar?Also, what would the flavor contribution be? I am going to make a cabernet . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it would help to bring up the sugar level (brix). Certainly this is better than adding sugar. Since it's a grape concentrate, it will contribute to color as well. It's not 100% cabernet concentrate, but blend of red (or white if you choose) grapes. Should be close enough!

3/12/2005 – I’m a new customer and new to wine making bought 2 months ago I started a 3 gallon batch of blueberry wine using a fruit wine base my starting S.G was 1.095 and is now 1.00, only the wine taste like alcohol almost like gin. Any idea on why or how to make it taste better?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It IS pretty alcoholic. use less sugar in the beginning next time. At this point, you can do a few things...1) add some water (dilute)2) sweeten with wine conditioner (be sure to add some sulfite too, so that you don't get a re-fermentation)3) sweeten with grape concentrate (again, be sure to stabilize)4) blend with another wine . . .
2/20/2005 – I have made some red wine going on 1 yr old from natural grapes. It doesn't have much body and is a bit harsh. COuld you please suggest which product I could use to add body and deep red color. I have seen super smoother for the harsh taste just require to add body and deep red color. I have approx 50 litres.Please confirm the cost to . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There are really two ways to add body to your wine. The first is to use a concentrate, but this will cause a re-fermentation. If that is ok, we have a red concentrate that can be added directly to the wine. It will also add color. Use about 2 liters per 50 liters of wine.The second way does not require refermentation, but it is normally . . .
11/16/2004 – Hello again, I just recieved my grape wine concentrate and am going to make a 5 gal batch of lambrusco from sun cal concentrate. I am looking to make a sweeter than normal lambrusco. Should I add the bottle of grape concentrate when I start the primary fermentation or should I wait until my 1st racking?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I would add it at the beginning. Depending on how much (other) sugar is there, and the type of yeast, and many other factors, however...it may NOT make it sweeter. Only more alcoholic and full bodied. Those grape sugars ferment out, after all.
11/3/2004 – I have a recipe for Port that includes a gallon of "red grape concentrate". It also includes elderberries and bannanas. I was wondering which concentrate would you recommend?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Here is a link to the red grape concentrate:
7/20/2004 – Is this concentrate a good additive to fermented red wine?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, but it does add sugar, and would need additives to keep it from (re)fermenting.
12/16/2003 – How much wine can 500ml of this "grape concentrate" make?DO you ship to the Caribbean?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: This would make only about 1 gallon. It is normally used to "supplement" larger batches by bringing up the sugar level and to add additional flavor.Yes, we ship to some Caribbean locations...but not all.
8/22/2003 – How concentrated is the grape concentrate? What is the volume reduction?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That's a very good question. You can probably find fault with my measurement techniques, but I believe the concentrate to be appoximately 60 brix. Really quite thick. About the consistancy of pancake syrup. Some sugars settle to the bottom, so you need to shake the container well.For reference, the starting point for most (wine)grape juice . . .
