Default Perry recipe?

Folks, I've been looking for a Perry recipe due to the 6 gallons of waiting-to-be-fermented pear juice in my basement. Perry is fermented pear juice, not pear wine. Does anyone have a recipe that they have used and would be willing to share?

Many thanks.

I'm pretty pleased with the one in my drop down so far.

Thanks BK. Looks good to me. I am not sure how to translate this into a "from Juice" recipe, as opposed to a "from fruit" recipe.

There was a recipe in the Terry Garey winemaking book - my library has lost it in the 3 days since I returned it - no longer in the system. Should have copied that page.

I just didn't trust some of the recipes that google turned up. If only Jack Keller had a recipe.

I'm still a bit of a noob, but I think you would want to judge with your hydrometer to match the recipe. Dilute until your OG matches the recipe. Would that be right, BK?

I'll look in that book when I get home and see what she has to say about it. I remember it being very simple....and was what inspired me to make mine.
To convert to a juice recipe...just take a gravity reading on your juice, and start adding honey till you hit that magic 1.060 (YOU COULD be pretty close with juice) then add the vanilla and yeast.

Thanks for the idea guys! That sounds easy.

IIRC the Terry Garey recipe was like 0.5 lbs sugar per gallon, some acid and tannin I believe? Really easy.

all 3 of Terry's recipes for pear wine are just that...wine. 2# + sugar per gallon plus either fresh, canned, or dried fruit.

I think I remember a "box" on the page opposite a wine recipe that had an adaptation for Perry?
