I read most of the thread, but I admittedly didn't read it all. So forgive me if this question has already been answered.
If you're interested in making this taste more strongly of rhubarb (either because you don't have access to very much rhubarb, or just because you want to increase the rhubarb taste), is there anything you can do to increased the rhubarb taste from less fruit? Like mash it, or dice it, or.... I don't know. Something?
I haven't made this or any other wines yet, but I know that when rhubarb comes into season, I never see very much of it in my local grocery stores.

I have a V-Vessel, hanging fermenter for beer and wine making. I prefer the wine. I and my family have always been Rhubarb fanatics. I refuse to eat the pies unless we make them since they are always ruined by the addition of Strawberry. You mentioned in your thread that you wanted to make 5 gallons. The Vessel is a 5 gallon container and everything from start to finish, (meaning bottling), is done in this Vessel. Can you post you 5 gallon recipe so I can jump all over it? I have too much Rhubarb in the freezer that even we have run out of things to do with it. Regards from Reno, NV

Ok , How are ye all folks. i'm going to attempt this as i just got a load of Rhubarb but first i've a few questions
I'm fairly new to home brewing so be gentle

What do you mean by "lees"
Tanin ? what is it and is there a replacement for it or can i do without it ?
when i rack onto the campden tablets do i need to repitch more yeast (does campden not kill yeast)
also the yeast i have here is "youngs super wine yeast compound" it states 1 heaped teaspoon per gallon ! I'm going to try a 5 gallon batch !
Thanks in advance.
stephen

I bet Yooper responds soon to your questions. I'll give a swag too. BTW, our first batch from last June is getting pretty tasty. Bringing a 1.5L bottle up to the lake for Memorial. If I'm out picking rhubarb for our 2013 batch, its time to start consuming!

1) Lees are the yeast and fruit particulate that drops out at the bottom of your fermenter.
2) Tannin gives some extra flavors that might be lacking and helps protect it during aging. I would stick with it, but have no experience in this recipe without.
3) Camden is just used in the beginning prior to yeast pitch to control any wild yeasts in the fruit from reproducing. It dissapates over time so that the yeast you pitch are the primary fermenters. Camden added after fermentation is over is there to prevent oxidation and limit yeast reproduction to shut it down.
4 )I don't know much about the Youngs Super Yeast Compound, but from what I gather its usually used in really high alcohol ciders/wines/distilling. If it were me, I'd try and get some of the more commonly used wine yeasts like Montrachet.

Great, I would stick to the recipe for the first batch. Yep the year long wait sucks, but I made it.

Unfortunately I still have another 12-18 months before my first sour beer will be ready

You pretty much covered it! I have no idea what "super yeast Compound" is, but I'd use a generic wine yeast and not that unless you absolutely can't get any wine yeast.

I'm picking rhubarb tomorrow. We have lots, so I'll make about 6 gallons of wine.

Hey Yooper, thanks for the recipe. I am going to use this for my first wine and was wondering if you prefer using the juice concentrate or the light raisins?
