Flavor pack. Generally used for sweet wines to add flavor after all juices have fermented out.

What MN Winer said, its a flavor pack. I created one for my apple wine by taking apple juice and simmering down to 50% of starting quantity then added to wine. Sweetened it up a bit and added back some of the lost flavor.

I hear this term used, what is an f-pac?
F-PAC

How to make a F-PAC = Flavor Pac


Add 20-30% of #’s of fruit what was used in the primary (if you used 30# in recipe then you will need 6-9# more for the f-pac) in a large frying pan or pot. Simmer to extract all "flavor" and reduce the water from the fruit. Strain thru a kitchen strainer and add AFTER you rack and after the wine is DRY ( .990) You MUST have added k-meta and Sorbate before adding the f-pac. Once adding the f-pac you can add clearing agent. You will have to rack at least 2+ more times. Then
back sweeten to YOUR taste using simple syrup.
