Pear Wine

Recommended Posts

Hey all given pear a go so thought I'd share the process and recipe for anyone interested,firstly you need:

 

2kg of pear,any variety

1kg sugar

Yeast

Yeast nutrient

Pectolase

Citric acid

 

Then,roughly chop the pear and boil for around 20 mins,pour the juice over the sugar in primary fermenter and stir to dissolve,make up to one gallon,allow to cool to room temp then add yeast,nutrient acid and pectolase,leave for around five days before straining into demijohn with airlock,when fermentation has ended rack into clean demijohn then leave 3 months before bottling.

 

Here's some pics of the process so far,

Leave it still I think,once I've made it once and know if I like it I might try sparkling stuff...

Here it is racked off to clear,lost that cloudy pear colour,which I really liked,but has turned out nice,tastes good and will be left for a while before bottling...
