I picked myself up a cheapo Cornucopia Pear/Chardonnay to make some table wine for next summer and had a question about the "pear" juice that comes with the kit along with the wine concentrate.
I'm not interested in making a sweet wine so I will NOT be following the instructions and adding the pear juice after the fermentation period. Ideally, I would just like to add ALL the juice together for the fermentation, tweak it a bit with bananas for body, and ferment it out to a dry wine. BUT, my concern is that there might be some sort of sorbate in the pear juice additive that would hinder the initial fermentation since it is a "post-fermentation additive".
Long story short, does anyone know if the companies usually add sorbates or any sort of inhibitor to the additive juices?
Thanks for any info or advice....
