Hello,

I've contemplated at some point using wild plums in my rhubarb wine. I see below there's a plum wine thread, but I think that's more about domesticated plums. I have tons of wild plums around me. I would like to make a gallon of it this summer to see if it is even worth messing with in a larger batch of rhubarb.

So, anyone ever use this? Recipe?? Think it would be a horrible idea??? They taste very different than a regular plum you get from the store. I'm guessing they have less sugar.

wild plum recipe is not different than a domestic plum just adjust specific gravity and acid then pitch yeast.

I made wild plum port once, I kept feeding it sugar till it got to 18%. Tried to adjust the acid without using too much water. After three years it was pretty good, prior to that the young wine would have made very good cleaner or disinfectant. Never again. Now my wild grape port turned out real nice after three years. I call them port because of the alcohol level.
