Ended up putting frozen tunas in a boil and mashed them with skins spines and all It was rather easy I thought. They smashed real easy and not much of anything left on the skins. Strained thru a fine screen and then thru a fine mesh grain bag. Ended up with four gallons of juice from 30 lbs. Used a gallon of water. Topped up with one gallon of blue berry pomegranate juice. 8 lb sugar and 1/2 cup lemon juice a little energizer 5 c tabs and 1118 yeast sg 1085. Smells really good now that the yeast is going.

Tuna is another name for Prickly Pear Fruit?

It looks very good. We are moving to AZ next Fall and it would be good to know this because my wife loves sweeter wines.

Thank you for sharing.
