Wow, I somehow never saw this thread before making my banana wine! Weird!

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f25/banana-toffee-wine-315909/

I'm not sure how much of a difference it will make, but I mashed my banana (both physically and chemically a la malted barley), didnt use any of the banana skin, and caramelised the sugar. It was a ridiculously active fermentation, but after it calmed down and I racked it, it's looking (and smelling) very nice!

Here is my finished product, bottled on Sunday 4/22/12.

This one had about 1lb of golden raisins and 3lbs of dried apricot.

Bought bananas for this last night, going to start a 3 gallon batch....if I have to wait 2 years, might as well make a couple years worth of it. (I assume since I make other wines, I won't drink 15 bottles of this two years...but who knows)

I'm getting ready to rack mine off of the raisins in a few weeks, and will need to top it off. I thought it said to top it off with white wine, but can't find it in the thread. What kind of white wine should I top it off with?
Thanks,
wickerman

I've used sauvignon blanc and pinot grigio with good results.

Racked 4 gallons into a carboy last night. The bucket was filled right to the 4 gallon mark so I grabbed a couple of extra containers so I could keep the extra for topping off. I put 4 boxes of raisins in the carboy and filled it up and I had just over 1 qt. of extra wine remaining.

I thought the carboy was a 2.5 gallon, but maybe it was a 3 gallon? There was a fair amount of lees on the bottom of the bucket.

We watched the whole War Horse movie while I chopped those darned raisins. I gotta find a faster method...
