Do you break the cinnamon sticks up or live the whole?My apple pear wines were great. Aging will improve them. I add cinnamon sticks for 6 months before bottling. I made a semi dry and a sweet batch. Started with 5 gallons each.
I also took some pear wine and blended juice to create a Peach Mango Pear. Also really good.
Jon, I had a gallon of a neighbors apple that I added 2 cinnamon sticks unbroken and for my 5 gallon of apple I added I think 4. I let them age 6 months. It wasn't too much cinnamon taste just enough to taste.Do you break the cinnamon sticks up or live the whole?
I made a perry last fall and it is great! I used ripe apples and green pears(not quite ripe, but not sour). If remember right it was about 40% pears and 60% apples. It was a nice smooth juice and the wine really cleared out nice. We didn't back sweeten it at all, but it turned out to be pretty sweet!Oh at first I thought you put apple & pear together , that sounded really good . i say it good to sample so you know you're doing the right thing by letting it age more .Were they just small batches ?
Yes it does. I sweetened it to 1.020djsteve,
does your pear wine have a good pear taste when it is done? i have always wanted to buy a few bottles fo homemade pear wine
