hey i heard that If you end up with a pectin haze you can use pectic enzyme when the fermentation is complete to clear the haze, Yeast nutrient can be substituted with 1 banana, pureed into the brew ingredients at the beginning. You can do 1 per gallon or 1 per 5 gallons, is this true and can someone verify it works

I don't know about the banana, but most wines don't need nutrient anyway.

You can use pectin enzyme later if you want to, or just leave it out.

It really depends on the recipe. Some things, like honey, aren't nutrient-dense, so nutrient is crucial. Most wines are made out of fruit, though, which usually is a good food for yeast. I'd still get some yeast nutrient when you get a chance, for in the future, but if fermentation goes well without a sulfury (rotten egg) stink, you won't need to add a banana or anything.

If you do notice a bad odor, let us know and we'll give you some instructions to help keep the yeast happy.
