Tell me more about how you added the pears. I'm getting ready to start a Cellar Craft Viognier and was thinking about Golden Raisins.
6 ripe pears (3 lbs.), cored & chopped into small bits (I used my blender). You will need to add 6 tbs. of pectin enzyme as well. I also put golden raisins into this batch (3 lbs.). As Joe said, try to keep the ABV to 12% or less. My SG was 1.088

Added the pears and the raisins. Just bottle the CC Viognier yesterday. Wow. It is great. Having trouble finding another CC kit. May have to try the WE 8L kit, but worried about the reduced volume. They are $57.19 at LP.
