  • Posted in thread: Help! Backflavoring Gross Pumpkin Wine on 01-07-2017 at 01:56 PM
    All the guys saying to dump - don't yet. Go forward with the spices and brown sugar. Little
    cost and time investment. I've made several batches of pumpkin, and it's the spices that give
    the flavor. Pu...

    Take 1 bottle out, add some ground cinnamon, whole cloves (1 maybe), and nutmeg. Maybe some
    pumpkin pie spice too. Mix it up. Try that. Good?If so, scale up, and flavor the whole batch,
    then bottle. I...

    Squeeze the Cherries until they disappear into solution, and only the pits are left. Let the
    pulp settle, then rack off of that. I do that for most every fruit!

    If it's weak, it's not going to get any stronger. I'd consider some other alternative. Maybe
    you could blend it with fruit juices, and make a lower ABV sangria, and bottle that? I've had
    some weak win...

    niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice! 100% juice? What is your ABV? Oak, etc? How'd it turn out?

    You can finish it by TG! Don't listen to naysayers :)Start in a bucket, keep in open, covered
    bucket until 1.000. Maybe 4 days? Rack into CB, let it finish to 0.990. Maybe 7 more days. Rack
    it, add Su...

    start small, you can always add more. check often to be sure you don't over do it.

    I would rack the bucket into a carboy now to finish out. No more air or stirring needed. You'll
    have a LOT of lees from the strawberrries.I think it might be a sickly sweet rocket-fuel no
    body mess - ...
