Honey- is made up up approximately 70% sugar, the remainder is made up of impurities. Such as yeast, bacteria, water, albumen (Egg white is the common name for the clear liquid), and ash. But our main concern is the amount of sugar, for it is what the yeast feeds on to produce the alcohol that is desired. The yeast and bacteria are also our concern, but these are going to be taken care of while brewing.

If you use Little honey the wine will be dry, if you use ALOT of honey it will be sweet! Even if you want it to be sweeter you can also add more sugar like corn sugar, if u do not have corn sugar available, cane will work but defiantly not as good.
