    water this is the beginning batch, made like any standard wine.

    Week Number:
    1. 2 lbs brown sugar to 2 cups water boiled cooled, and fed to wine

    When this has stopped bubbling add 3 campden tablets and let settle for 1 week naturally. Rack
    again, fine with gelatin, and let sit for another week. Finally add 1/4 - 1/2 oz American un-

    there you have it.
