I just picked up a 3lb 1oz (46oz) can of Vintners Blueberry Puree. I cannot find any recipes online for this. Does this one can make 2.5 gallons?
I looked for a recipe online for this particular purée. It said 49 ounces makes 1 gallon. One gallon is 128 ounces if my math is correct. ... we made a blueberry that was excellent and used 3 gallons of purée plus 2 bags of frozen whole berries that were 4 pounds each. This is was for a 6 gallon batch.
We started our blueberry September 19,2016. It was still harsh in June 2017. We bulk aged, did bench trials and back-sweetened and bottled in August 2017. We had tasted it in June 2016 and it was stillFrom what I have read, it will take at least 1 year for Blueberry wine to age. Was this the case with your batch?
The purees, if you read the marketing information are really aimed a those folks wishing to add a flavor to another wine variety. While they certainly can be used to make a great fruit wine on their own, the larger 96 oz cans are the ones that will make a 2-3 gallon batch of wine on their own. Your 46 oz can is probably best for making not more than one gallon of wine. Anything more than that amount and you run the risk of ending up with a rather light flavored wine unless you add additional fruit of the same variety or another variety for a blended wine.
I only use frozen blueberries for my recipe 2lb to a gallon but frozen or pureed a lb is a lb so if my math is correct yes you are short about 2lb. Good luck. You will also need to add some sugar to get your alcohol up.
