I made this wine for the first time exactly as stated. It turned out alright, but was a bit too bitter. I found that the reason the taste was so off, was because there was no way for the gases to escape. I have made a few small changes, that made the wine phenomenal! First, dissolve the sugar in water before it is added to the jug, and I use 2 juice concentrates instead of one, it gives more flavour. before placing your balloon on, use a small needle or sewing pin to poke a few hole in the top of the balloon. This will let the gases out, but it wont let the air in. After your wine has fermented, use a funnel and some kind of strainer (I use nylon stocking, their about a dollar at most stores) and strain the wine into wine bottles, or another gallon jug. After that, the wine is done, and tastes great! For a richer flavor though, let it sit in it's new container for about a week longer, and the wine is PERFECT! Enjoy. :-)
