If Using Cherry Juice
If you're not using the container your juice comes in, pour one gallon of cranberry juice into your gallon jug.
Pull up the sweetness calculator, and decide how sweet you'd like your juice.
Using the values from the sweetness calculator, pour out some juice (you can save it to backsweeten with later) and add your sugar. Then, shake it all up!
Open your brewsy bag and pour the contents in. Seal your juice again and shake well.
Apply the airlock , then leave your container somewhere dark and warm (75-80°F is best) for 3 days.
If Using Cherries
Pit and halve cherries.
Add your fruit to your pot or blender along with your water and sugar.
Blend/boil until completely dissolved.
Strain before moving to gallon container and, if you boiled the cherries, let sit for about 15 minutes to reach room temperature .
add brewsy bag.
apply the airlock and leave the container somewhere dark and warm (75-77°F is best) for 3 days.
move to the fridge for 48 hours.
after 48 hours in the fridge, pour wine off the sediment that has gathered in the bottom of the bottle (best to pour into an extra empty bottle or large bowl, rinse out the original bottle, and then return wine to newly rinsed bottle).
store your wine in the fridge to keep chilled and fresh.
