Default First Strawberry Wine

Used this recipe from Keller, and altered it a bit:

Quote:
3 lbs. fresh strawberries
2-1/2 lbs. granulated sugar
2 tsp. citric acid
water to make 1 gallon
wine yeast & nutrient

Place all ingredients except yeast in crock. Crush fruit with hands and cover with 5 pints boiling water. Stir with wooden paddle to dissolve sugar and simultaneously mash the strawberries. When cooled to 85 degrees F., add yeast. Cover and stir daily. Strain on 7th day, transfer to secondary fermentation vessel, top up to one gallon, fit fermentation trap, and set aside. Rack after 30 days and again after additional 30 days. Bottle when clear. Allow to age at least 6 months. Will improve to one year.
Changes:

Scaled up for 5 gallons.
Added one 11oz cans of strawberry juice concentrate
Used Montrachet
Will not rack after thirty days. Will rack at three months and bottle in November.

You NEED to rack. Get it off the dead yeast or it will pick up that flavor.

Sure, I will keep this updated. Keep in mind the taste as it goes into secondary will not represent the final product, which I won't try until Christmas 2012.
