Well it would help if you gave more information than "I am"

All I can say in response is that people make wine out of it all the
time.  The simplest thing to look for is to see if the concentrate had
sorbate or benzoate added, athough they normally do not.

Our stores here in Anchorage seem to have plenty.  I cannot find the
Old Orchid juices that some folks seem to like.

If you can get to a health food store, you should find Cascadian Farms
Organic Grape Concentrate. It's much more flavorful than Welch's,
producing a better wine. It's what i used to make my first batch, which
is approaching "ready to drink" status. :)

Not to nitpick apart your post.

But if it is your first batch, how do you know that it makes a much
better wine (more flavorfull?) than welch's?

I'm very curious if anyone hit the mark yet.  I have yet to see
welch's RED grape juice in concentrate form.  They all have the Red
grape juice in bottles around here, and I'm not sure of the  source of
these grapes.

The concentrates we do have on the shelves are the Niagara and the
Concord.  Of course the Concord is their purple and is not marketed by
color, only by name and all those grapes come from up here in the
north east.

In fact, that reminds me that I have 5 gal concord ready to bottle
tonight.

I guess I misunderstood the original post.  I thought he was having
trouble fermenting it.

Welches does not make a red grape concentrate.  They just have the
niagra and concord, every thing else goes into blends.  The red juice
is a blend of varietals such as bluebell and vailiant.

Concord is a red grape juice.  When we refer to Welch's red, it is concord.

I would be happy to find any kind of concentrated grape juice in the
supermatket that was not the white stuff.

Yes, but as Hoss alluded to Welches actually makes 3 colors of grape
juice all available in bottles.  While wine comes in two colors, grapes
actually come in 5 colors (red, white, green, blue and purple)

Welches make white, which is from niagra grapes, purple from concord
and red from an unknown (red and blue) grape source.  So if he was been
looking for "Welches Red Grape juice" in frozen concentrate, he is out
of luck.

Mdgzino, not being able to find frozen concord grape juice is puzzling.
 Both Welches and Old Orchard are widely available.  The easiest
solution is to contact the grocery manager at your favorite place and
ask them to get some in.

Welp. I found some Welch's Red today, but it says "100% with other
ingredients added",  What the hekc does THAT mean?  I tried to look at
the ingredient list, but my tired old eyes couldn't see the type.

Okay you kinda got me there...but what i MEANT was that I would assume
that since it is a much better tasting GRAPE JUICE that it would make a
better wine...the welchs just doesnt have as much flavor in juice form
as the cascadian farms. On a side note... i've just started a second
batch using home made grape juice that grew in my Great Grandmother's
back yard...it makes the other two taste like water.

well that is true.  you do have to have good grapes to make good wine.
Of course, I would caution that more flavor does not always equal
better wine.  some wines are better with a delicate flavor, like Pinot.
