Hello!

I stumbled across what i think to be a plum tree! I'm going to pick some this week at some point!
Was wondering if anyone has a recipe as im struggling to find an interesting recipe for a gallon or 2? Has anyome made plum wine? How would I go about it?

Thanks in advance
Tori

Give some thought about the type of plum wine you want. Recent bottled what is a classically wine. But there are also some excellent dessert styles that are both rich in flavor and higher ABV. I've had the latter only as commercial products but both are great.

I'm not sure if this is interesting, but it worked very well:

26 lbs with pits
19 Lbs pitted Pitted Plums
14 lbs Sugar
5 gal Water
3/4 tsp Tannin
6 tsp Yeast Nutrient
1 tsp Yeast Energizer
3 Tablet Pectic Enzyme
5 Tsp Acid Blend
1 pack Premier Cuvee yeast

What is the starting volume of that in gallons 10/12

It was started in a 7 gallon primary. Even though I used a bag for the fruit, I only would up with 20 bottles. Early on, I spilled about 3/4 of a gallon!!

Hi.
I have read somewhere that plums seed's/pits contain amygdalin. So I rather stay away from them. But might be it's just bull....
Anyways, for strong taste fruit's I always use some apple juice mix. From 10 to 30% of total. Try it some times.
I personally hate, clean apple wine. But 50/50 apple/ red berries, 5gram/liter of final sugars and 9%alc, love it when sparkling.
Generally my not so long experience tells me that main fruits are:
Apple-sour
Red berries
Gooseberry-geen
To those I add other, strong/full taste fruit's.
My best regards.
