Well, here in Arizona, the Prickly Pears are getting ripe. My Dad and I just started brewing this week. We have our first batch of Wheat Beer fermenting in the closet right now. I'm hooked.
I was thinking of making a Prickly Pear wine and then thought about trying a soda first. Has anyone ever made one? I would like to have the Prickly Pear be the main flavor of the soda. The fruit doesn't have too high of a sugar count so I have to figure out how much sugar to add to it. I think I'm going to try using a Champaigne yeast for the carbonation.
Any suggestions on quantities and additional ingredients would be very much appreciated.
