Default Pear extract

I want to do a pear saison, adding pear concentrate after primary fermentation finishes. I cannot find pear concentrate anywhere except from industrial suppliers. Can I get it anywhere?

I really do not want to mash up all those pears myself...

That's going to be a lot of pear (and a hole in the wallet)! If you can get your hands on this, give it a try: http://www.knudsenjuices.com/product...&productID=241
I drink this juice, it tastes great and it's natural. I don't think they use any sulfites, which might inhibit fermentation or any strange preservatives. A jar or two of these should work.

Thanks! I've seen that brand around here, but I don't believe I've seen the pear flavor...

I know exactly what you mean. They sell the juices around Phoenix, but the pear is quite rare. I have only found it at WholeFoods, it's a pricey store so I only buy it once in a while.

They might work, don't think they have pear flavor. The problem is I don't remember if they were 100% fruit juice. I also can't remember if they use any preservatives. I would drink the juice but, personally, would not use anything less than 100% pure juice without preservatives.
