1 gal Tree-top apple juice (or any kind without preservatives)
1 C warmed molasses
1 packet winemakers yeast (mine was the dry/champagne kind)

Put your check valve on until it stops bubbling. (about 4-5 weeks)

Check the finished alcohol content (about 8%).

Add 1/2 C. brown sugar.

Wait another week.

Pour and enjoy the sparkling applejack you made at home.

Total cost less than $ plus the $9 for the 4.5L jug of Carlos Rossi Rhine wine for the carboy)

from the three glasses I've had and the sugar I put in last week, I think it's well on the plus side of +8%.
