Hi Miriam! I made a raisin wine a couple of years ago. I used 4 pounds of blue raisins in a 5 gallon batch. The feedback from a number of people was that I should have used 8 pounds of raisins.Miriam said:That's enough for now, although I have some dim ideas about a raisin wine or pyment based on raisins, and a carob concoction of some sort - for later.
Well, I'm pretty sure I too suffer from UFUS. Everytime I'm at the grocery store or farmer's market I find myself shopping for my mead instead of shopping for me.Miriam said:I believe that I'm in the advanced stages of Uncontrolled Fermentation-Urge Sydrome. Let the eye rest ever so gently on any vegetable or fruit, and the brain feverishly begins to calculate how much water and sugar; which yeast; and what other additives needed to make make liquor out of them.
