Yes 5 gallon batch.
This is minimum # per gal. I would go 6#+ per gallon. Peach needs a f-pac as well.

Tom - why did you go 1.095 with the SG on this? Being a fruit wine i would have thought the SG would be around 1.085.

Is absorbic acid needed in a peach wine? I have read that apple and peach wine brown easier and to use this to prevent that.

God EYE.. a typo S/B 1.085
You could use ascorbic I didnt on this one. Also I have been bumping the fruit up to 30-35 # for 6 gal. The body seams to increase when I added more.

I like to thaw 1st in a straining bag as it will release some juice.
Whats the recipe and how many #'s you have?
Add yeast when gravity and temp is right. Leave bag in till gravity is 1.020ish
Yes punch it down 2X a day w/ lid laying on top

OK here's what y need to do;
Split the peaches in 2
1/2 in one bag 1/2 in another. Use 2 fermenting buckets
water to 2.5 gal ea bucket.
Use 1 gal of each bucket to heat and dissolve sugar and return

Just started this and split in 2 batches, one is 3 gal & one is 2 gal.

sg on 3 gal is 1.021 (sliced peaches) n on the 2 gal is 1.032 (canned peaches)

from the calculator i found to get 12.5% would be 2 lbs on the first and 1.75 lbs on the second does this seem right. i know you stated 10# for 5 gal?

im heating the juice now and desolving these amounts of sugar then ill add them back and stir and recheck the sg

Will soon be starting my peach wine soon. Shouldn't there be K-meta added to the peaches first?

Why the use of so much water? Is it because you only get like one gallon of juice from the actual fruit? It just seems like that is a bit much on the water, but I could be wrong.
