dralarms could I have your recipe for banana wine please
Get as many bananas as you can (my wife buys them every week and I get what's left when they start turning).
Peel them and freeze them,
Dump in bucket, add about 3 tablespoons of pectic enzyme for every layer of bananas.
Place a bowl of kmeta on top of fruit and cover bucket.
While thawing you can remove the bowl, push the fruit below the juice level and replace the bowl of kmeta.
Once thawed take bowl of kmeta out and throw away. Add sugar ( I added 5 lbs to 5 gallons)
Make yeast starter, get it rolling good and dump on your must.
I do not add any water, if you must add liquid the add white grape juice, the fruit will break down and you get what you get. I had 67 lbs on my last batch and ended up with 6 gallons. It's still in the clearing stage but if it's anything like the batch I made 2 times ago it's strong and very good after backsweetening.
