I have a recipe for pomegranate wine, which calls for X number of fruit per gallon. However, I can get pomegranate juice in bilk much cheaper. Does anyone have or know where I might find a recipe for pomegranate wine using juice, or a method of calculating how much juice replaces how many fruits?
Sorry so late in replying Chirotus. I have made a fairly good red wine from welche's grape juice. If you can find pomegranate juice in a 100% form or concentrate it should work fine. Use brewer's yeast and not the bread type yeast and maybe add a lil sugar at the begining to give the yeast more nutrition.
I have recipes from juice concentrate, I suppose. I guess I didn't think about just using any old juice recipe. Pomegranates are a little tart and not always as sweet, so I wonder if that kind of recipe would carry over ... I guess I'll just have to try it and find out.
I think I'll keep it simple at first and just sweeten it up a bit. I suspect it will turn out similar to the cranberry wine I made a few years back. Maybe when I get a recipe down I'll start to tweak it a bit. Much of the Pom juice tends to be mixed with blueberry juice, and I might try that.
