    Thanks for the help

    I have found some supermarket goosberrys and 300gm tin on the label it says 12gms of sugar per 100gms I presume that that's fruit and all. So if I just add the juice which is described as a light syrup then I wont be adding a lot of sugar.

    Can someone confirm?

    IMO most of the sugar is in the syrup.

    If most of the sugar is in the syrup then what sort of SG does it end up with

    That's a good question. Looking at my notes, I have never measured the SG afterwards. Everything was done to taste really.

    You know, I never got round to making this !!
    I really should, as I have the gooseberrys in the cupboard already !!

    Can anyone tell me if there is a reason for putting the goosberrys in after? If I like my wine dry then would it matter if I put them in in the beginning?

    Yes it would matter.

    You only add the juice and not the gooseberrys themselves.

    If you add at the beginning, most of the flavour can be lost during fermentation. Adding as a late addition or in this case after fermentation has finished the flavour is preserved.

    I have a batch of this which I keep meaning to bottle (and more to the point taste - again). Really very good indeed - that will be about a year in the DJs (I mixed tinnned gooseberry and tinned lychee juice).
