Fantastic. Freeze the juice, do some research and make your wine 5 or 10 gallons at a time. This will allow you to space it out while you learn how to make good plum wine............

or

buy a lot of toilet paper and make it all at once.:)

Yep, just adjust, and use a packet of yeast per every 5-6 gallons of must being made.

Plum Wine

I just put in 18 gallons (12 gallons in one fermenter & 6 in another) using Wade's recipe.

I used 120 lbs. of plums and it is turning out nicely, already racked 6 gallons over to secondary and will pull the 12 gals. over tomorrow, I hope.

Wade's recipe was right on que!

Good Luck...
