make a wine kit stronger

Post by homebrewcrew » Wed Nov 06, 2019 12:15 pm

Hiya folks, new to this so please be patient. I bought a Beaverdale red wine kit and followed instructions exactly. Three months later it tastes great but it's only 12.2 abv.
How do I make the next one stronger, say about 15%.
many thanks

Make up less than the suggested volume! If you make it to 4 litres instead of 4.5 litres you should end up with about 14%.
