Well I went a little crazy with my new steamer this past weekend, I ended up with 5 plus gallons of Rhubarb juice ( closer to a lite syrup ). Now I have been searching for good recipe and haven't had much luck. any Ideas ???:?

When I can get some fresh juice I plan on making a blend of strawberry and Rhubarb.

You can probabley figure it out. Get Juice to say 1.09 or1.085. I'd add some strawberry personally, Add some yeast nutrient. PH on Rhubarb should be low enough no problem. Add some pectic enzymes. I would go with Levon 1118 yeast. . Put pe in then let sit 24 hours before pitching yeast. As far as adding strawberries goes I this you could try adding strawberry Jam for flavor. Luc makes his strawberry wine out of Jam. If all else fails I can drive down Hyway 9 and take the juice off your hands. Really, I dont know who new to wine making you are. Need a hand ,let me know

Sorry it has taken so long to get back to my post, had to make 2 trips to Alaska and now I am playing catch up. So I went and got 15 pounds of fresh strawberry's and put them through my steamer and got about 1.5 gallons of juice and a coffee can of pulp that is in the freezer. What do you think about 5 gallons of rhubarb, 1.5 of strawberry and water to make a 10 gallon batch ???? I also have huckleberry and cherry juice. Will try and get a batch going next week.
