I learned that to boil fruits isn't really a good idea before fermenting them.
I thought it would be a good idea to kill the "wild yeast" present in the fruit(as I read somewhere), so I boiled an orange and some raisins(dried grapes) before putting it in a gallon of mead which is now fermenting. I kinda mashed the oranges parts while it was boiling to get most of the juice out, than I put all the stuff in the mead mix.
But well, I would like to know if it's really not a good idea or if it's ok...as I would like to try out some wine made out of fruit... !
Thank you !!!
