In my intro I said that I was making a peach wine. My first fruit wine since I only have 20lbs peaches after destoning and as per Tom's rule of thumb I'll make a 4gal batch. Here's the recipe.
20lbs fresh Georgia peaches
5 Bannanas simmered for 20min then strained and juice added
10lbs sugar
5 campdon tablets
1/2 tsp pectic enzyme
2 1/2 tsp acid blend
1/4 tsp tannin
5tsp yeast nutrient
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/4tsp nutmeg
f-pac made from 4lbs peaches
Cote des Blancs yeast

I pitched yeast today. It was so thick that I couldn't get a hydrometer reading. So whatever its going to be is what it's going to be. I hope I did'nt screw it up.
