Juicing versus boiling vegetables....how to convert?


Alex posted regarding juicing for carrot wine and it leads me to this more general question...
Has anyone come up with a rule of thumb quantity conversion for people who are going to juice vegetables rather than boil them?

As you know, my guess is to use the same amount of vegetable as in the standard recipe and add less water to make up your gallon. Anyone else got any evidence or anecdote on this subject?

I'd like to bump this thread in case anyone can confirm or correct my question. Any ideas?
Thanks, Jim

When I made chokecherry wine, I only used the juice from the steamer. I weighed the berries and then steamed. The wine was excellent, just lighter in color.

So that would seem to be one hand in the air for "dont change the quantities"
Are there any evidenced based practice databases for country winemaking?
