I am making a concord grape wine that I would like to add body to. Is there much of a difference in the outcome of adding glycerine or sliced bananas that have been simmered on the stove. I think that adding the glycerine would be much easier, but if making the banana soup and adding it does something other than adding body I would like to know.

Banana should be done before clearing as it will cloud up the must
Glycerine can be added at bottling with no effects on clarify

Thanks Tom
I've already had it clearing for about a month and a half and would hate to add something and have it cloud back up. I guess I'll go with the glycerine.
