Red Fruit Sangria
Start with a base of only cranberry pomegranate juice in your gallon container.
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.
After 3 days, move it to the fridge for 48 hours. You can remove the airlock and set the original cap on top of your drink. Be sure not to tighten the cap!
After 48+ hours in the fridge, your yeast will have fallen to the bottom of your container.
Now, carefully "rack" your wine by pouring it off of the sediment into a different container. You can discard the sediment at the bottom — you won't want it in your final product. Then, pour a glass and give it a try!
After the sediment has been removed, add the tart cherry concentrate and shake the the bottle to mix.
Serve with slices of strawberries and frozen red grapes to keep it cool and add extra fruity flavor! Cheers!
NOTE: If there is leftover wine, return to fridge. If there are leftover strawberries or grapes, they can be left in the wine as it chills in the fridge - the fruits will gently infuse the wine as it ages.
