I was looking through recipes here and came across a frangipani / plumeria wine recipe. It sounds very intriguing and if it tastes anything like the flower smells...

So the recipe sounds straight forward except in the area of the yeast. One suggestion is 71B, other recipes relate a "general wine yeast". There are not many recipes. I think the one here is actually from Jack Keller. To that end, I'm looking for suggestions on a yeast that will take some time, ferment cooler to preserve aroma and flower nuances, and not strip too much from the flower profile.

It's not your typical recipe, but I'm in Florida for a short while more and attempting to find some plumeria flowers that I can freeze and bring back to NY. Sounds like a good winter project. And while my head is in the tropics I might as well round the project out with some passion fruit and mango wine too...

Thank you @salcoco

Looks like Plumeria goes dormant in November and December and starts blooming again in the March to April timeframe. There are a few online places that ship bulk blooms so I'll have to wait until then. To be continued ~
