HI there, I might make some banana wine using Jack Kellar's recipe: http://winemaking.jackkeller.net/request177.asp I might use the wine to add body to other fruit wines, but if like the taste, I might use an F-pac with some Reisling juice and make it a full-on drinking wine. I have two questions about banana wine. 1) How ripe should the bananas be? I posted a picture below with some examples of ripeness. 2) In this recipe, the peels are separated from the bananas, so you can have different levels of ripeness for the two. How ripe should the peels be? Thank you as always for the great advice!
