I found 2 gooseberry wine recipes that call for 1 gallon of boiling
water; one over 3# of ripe gooseberries (with sugar, no yeast), the
other over 6# of ripe gooseberries (with sugar, raisins and yeast).
Do you want me to e-mail the complete recipes?

Anyone have a recipe for currant / gooseberry wine which has 
measurements for juice rather than fresh fruit.  Made my first pass at 
the steam juicer, the juice is remarkably clear, clean, nuttin but 
juice.  It took a lot longer than I thought, maybe an hour & a half for 
5-6 pounds of fruit but I got 3/4 gallon of juice from that amount 
which is easily double what I would have gotten using my old hand 
squishing methods.
Since fruit production is pretty sketchy this year with all the rain, 
Im hoping to make wine with all my ribes together.  gooseberries, 
black, white & red currant & jostaberries.
