Every recipe I have ever seen about taking fruit like say,blackberry's or Elderberries or such, the recipe always calls for a household sugar addition ???. Household sugar is 100% fermentable so it will be fully fermented out thus as well as adding the alcohol it will thin out the wine and leave it without body. Has anybody here made a fruit wine without the addition of sugar.
