I received about 8 lbs of Rhubarb from a relative and had a bunch of frozen strawberries on hand, so decided to try making a batch of strawberry/rhubarb wine.
I looked at a couple different recipes and made one of my own, will see how it turns out.

Some measurements may be modified a bit once I get an SG reading.


3.1 Kg chopped Rhubarb
5.4 Kg frozen sliced strawberries
5 x 295ml Minutemaid grape punch frozen concentrate (sugar, grape, apple, pear juice, absorbic acid)
3 Kg white sugar
2 tsp yeast energizer
5 g fermaid
1.5 tsp pectic enzyme
20 g acid blend
1.45 g potassium metabisulfite
19 L water

I'll take some measurements tonight once everything has had some time to mix and will adjust the above values as needed.
Aiming for about a 10% fruit wine.

I'll be using 1116 yeast for this one.

Doh, both of my ph meters are broken. Have another one coming tomorrow.
So I don't know know ph yet.
I'm guessing it's way too high, as TA is just 3.5.
Added 600g more sugar to get to 1.07 sg

Fermentation is moving along, down to 1.06 now.
TA is now 0.6, pH 3.11.
So TA is now much more normal. dunno if it was a fluke reading I had or if the rhubarb is bringing it up.
