ok, this is definitely something on the list. After reading most of the thread how could you not grow curious just to taste this? I tried ed's apple wine a few years back and it was amazing.

I used two mesh bags and a turkey fryer pot (7-8 gallons) for my 5 gallon batch. Barely enough room.

I made a 6 gallon batch in my 8+ gallon turkey fryer pot. It was filled to the top. You could always do two split batches.

I was just at the store. I weighed some bananas. I had no idea how dense they were! One bunch is 3 pounds? This won't be nearly as hard to fit in one pot as I thought!

I am looking for a banana wine recipe that uses frozen bananas and not boiling them. Does anyone have any directives?

okay i have a question on this one, i just scored 25# of bananas for $2. half the recipes i see say to leave the skins on and half say to peel and puree the bananas. either way i'm to boil the batch and muslin bag what i can.

my question is why leave the skin on? does it add anything to the wine?
if i freeze this lot before using should i peel it first? i can't imagine putting black banana skins in a wine mix but you never know.

a quick answer would be great since i'll be trying to tackle this tonight or tomorrow.

thanks
Ben

I made mine with the skin on because that's what the recipe in the original post called for. I froze my bananas for a few days before I made the wine and the skin was black, but the fruit inside was still golden yellow. There weren't any off flavors from the black skins when I tasted the must before pitching or when I tasted it when transferring to secondary. So, I don't think there are any bad effects from leaving the skin on.
