Made a pineapple melomel last week.

3 lbs orange blossom honey
1/2 gallon Dole canned pineapple juice
Lalvin D47 yeast
Enough water to top up to the neck of a 1 gallon jug.

Very vigorous fermentation! Wish I had used a blow-off tube instead of continually having to clean out the airlock. Week and a half into primary the airlock is still bubbling once every 4 seconds.

I made some pineapple strawberry wine with dole concentrate and welshes strawberry breeze concentrate. Now it smells alright... but let me just tell you the best approximation of the taste is razor blades. It's PAINFUL and AWFUL. 5 gallons of death.

Let us know how yours turns out. I'd like to know if mine was a fluke.

My Pineapple is turning out great! I used Pineapple nectar for mine. 3 weeks out from bottling and it really cleared up nicely too.

Been thinking of trying a pineapple wine. Anyone care to share the recipe? I am new to wine making. I have many batches of beer under my belt. Two batches of mead that haven't been tasted yet. They were made right after Christmas. I currently have 1 gal of Blueberry wine, 1 gal of Grape wine, both made from 100% juice. I have 5 gal of Apple following Edworts recipe. (tasted that today and so far so good). Last I have 5 gal of mixed berry made from concentrate. Everything seems to be going just fine. the hardest part seem to be just waiting.

Klcramer-This is the recipe I followed but instead of using fresh pineapples I went to walmart and bought 8 boxes of Petit Pineapple Nectar ( they are $1 a box) and mine is working out great..Been under airlock now for 5 weeks and tastes awesome. I mixed extra so that I can sweeten when I rack it.

my pineapple wine came out at something like 12-15% alcohol and i backsweetened a little too much, but it still turned out fantastic for cooking(almost a liqueur) I caught my wife and her friend doing shots of it!
I can't remember the recipe, it was years ago, but definitely one i will try to do again.
