    Pear Wine

    As you cut up, add a tablespoon of lemon juice to the bowl to keep them from turning brown as you cut them up. Stir as you go In it.

    Pear Wine

    I would use the EC-1118. Are you going to freeze whole or cut up and freeze?

    Pear wine

    Frozen Concentrates

    My peach stopped at 1.006. It is dry not sweet at all. My blackberry and raspberry both stopped at 1.010.

    NEVER AGAIN ! This is "Black Raspberry" Flavored Concentrate? I don't think so!!!

    Just rack my Coloma peach today. Started in April 2021. Taste good. Looks clear. However I used 4 qts for 4.5 gals. in primary. After a couple racks I have 4 gals and a qt. aging.

    Cocoa nibs or Dutch chocolate

    Getting ready to rack my raspberry wine and want it to age 3 months on chocolate. Should I use roasted nibs or Dutch cocoa powder? Seems it would be easier to use the nibs. For the Dutch cocoa powder, can I blend it up in wine to make a liquid mixture to add to the carboy if I chose to use it?
