Default Perry

I found some 100% organic pear juice at my Kroger recently, so I decided to make a perry, something I've wanted to do for a long time. I basically followed Ed's Apfelwein recipe except I used Nottingham yeast in hopes of a lower attenuation and more pear flavor. SG was 1.072, which seemed a bit high, but will hopefully still be light and drinkable.

Long intro. How many of you guys have done a perry?

Suggestions for improving the recipe?

Thanks!

Cb

Never done a perry, but 10% give or take should certainly kick you right back into the seat a bit.

After aging 6 months I added sugar and bottled today. The sweetness is just beginning to show. I could probably have aged this another 6 months and it would be better. If it turns out the way I hope I may buy a new 5 gallon carboy and put some on a shelf for a year to see.

true that. Its really hard sometimes to wait stuff out...but worth it in the end...I try to have a couple things in different stages of brewing to keep my mind off the one that is just sitting waiting to be ready

I have trouble with the patience end as well. What really got me was thinking it might be ruined after four months and noticing the airlock was really low and letting air into the carboy. I put more water in it and waited it out and it seems fine. I'm much better at being patient with it in a carboy than when bottled, so I don't think this'll make it to the one year mark.

I know I am bringing this back from the dead, but if you are still around, how did it go? My wife's new found love is perry and I want to make her a batch, but I know it will be expensive and take time. I don't want to invest in $30 of pear juice if it is just 'meh'
