Default Strawberry Jalapeno Wine

Well I just put a 4 gallon batch of Strawberry Jalapeño wine into primary... Should be quite interesting...

3lbs Jalapeños - de-stemmed only, left vein ad seeds for heat
3.5lbs fresh strawberries
2lbs golden raisins - simmered to soften
3.5kg dextrose (corn sugar)
Water to 4 gal
3tsp pectic enzyme
6tsp acid blend
2x packs of Lavlin EC-1118

S.G. : 1.120

Hoping to finish dry at 0.990 and get about 17-18% ABV

Wish me luck

Will be more of a cooking wine then a sipping, but ya never know

Any input or suggestions? Has anyone else done anything like this? I made a straight jalapeño wine that turned out great... This strawberry jalapeño could be interesting (read pain in ass) due to complexity of acids on strawberry. Here's hoping

Well... just thinking that dosn't sound like NEARLY enough strawberries... I do a strawberry watermelon with 10# of strawberries and 10# watermelon and it's hard to tell they're in there...

They smell really strong... I will have to watch it and maybe add more in secondary after I sample it...

That's going to be some seriously hot stuff! Uh, good luck!


I did a Jalapeño Apple Peach wine that turned out nice. Just enough heat to give it bite and Jalapeño flavor, but still has distinct apple and peach flavors.

About 3.5 gal. of must yielded 3 gallons net. I used:

10 medium Jalapeños
2 gal. fresh peaches, halved
2.5 gal. fresh pressed apple juice
1 lb. golden raisins
1.5 lb. sugar

6 tsp. pectic enzyme
3 tsp yeast nutrient
1/2 tsp yeast energizer
1.5 tsp tannin
3 tsp acid blend
Lalvin K1-V1116
SG 1.090

Going to have to try the jalapeno apple peach... the wife has finally gotten into playing with brewing and she'll throw those scotch bonnet peppers in everything if I don't watch her so a spicy wine is perfect for her. Really curious how your strawberry jalapeno turns out since its high abv, strawberries, and hot.
