A modest 5L of Easy White Plus, the plus in this case consisting of a 500 mL bottle elderflower cordial I've had kicking around for a while and 50 g banana powder.

Giving us 1064 L.

Will we make to the two tonne mark again this year?

5 Litres of 'Red Juice'  Wink (2L Sainsburys RGJ, 1L Tesco Apple Juice, 700g Sugar, cup o' strong tea topped up with water then a teaspoon of pectolase, nutrient and Young's Yeast Compound).  My first non-kit wine - bit apprehensive how this will go   Undecided - wish me luck!

Mark, Your "Red Juice" wine will make an acceptable deep rosé so don't worry, it will mature quickly but will not be a great keeper, enjoy it young and chilled.
Richards "Richards Red" recipe makes a decent light red wine but I would add a little extra tannin and a tsp of acid blend, I like my wines to have a decent bite to them and if you like more body use 2 cans of RGC. Wink

Thanks for the responses and recommendations chaps!  I'll give 'Richard's Red' a go next with OB's suggested additions  Smiley

I've just started a Cellar 7 Merlot with an additional 3 Litres of Sainsbury's RGJ to add a tad more body and strength so...

Shamed to say, with "throat & stomach", ulcerations, have
24 li fruit juices, 4 li Grape Concentrates, 25Kg frozen fruits,
yet to be made --- 20+ empty glass D/J's, 35 empty 5 li Pets
Grape vines well maintained for this years "harvest", current stock of 45 li wines sound having racked, sampled (you must),adjusted, hopefully by end July will know outcome of biopsies.
Because of "acidity" of wine, am sticking to "Whisky/Whiskey", the latter for SWMBO who puts "diet coke" in --O M G!!
Cutting back, will be "selling" some of my equipment just now, but will continue to make, and advise until the "Reaper" calls. It's not all "doom and gloom".
Worst part had to give up "Judging", due to smell and taste problem.
