I made this from grape juice using the amount of yeast called for, and after 6 weeks it was still very yeasty in smell and flavor. After a few more weeks it had mellowed and is very tasty now, though extremely potent. I did 2 more batches using apple juice, 1 cup sugar, and 1 tsp of yeast for a 96 ounce jug of juice. I am trying it for the first time after 6 weeks, and it is really very good. A little dry,barely sweet, and a beautiful color. Not quite as potent as the grape but I prefer that. Thanks for the recipe! I am having such fun playing with this, and it will make nice Christmas gifts. If I have any left by then.
