Yooper or others - can you verify that you add pectic enzyme after you pull the fruit out? Or should I add it with the rhubarb? Thanks.

I still do it the same way I did in the instructions, with no changes, and I don't plan on changing it since it works so well.

Just had to comment that this stuff rocks! I think it will be a permanent part of summer trips to the lake. I have lots of requests from family/friends already. I hope to start our 2013 batch within a week or so, as we now have enough Rhubarb for 6 gallons again.

Last year we snuck in 3 lbs of strawberries. Mostly rhubarb flavor, but a subtle hint of strawberry. This year we might go peaches instead.

Mmmm- peaches sounds really good in this. I'm surprised I never thought of that!

Anyone have an opinion on Lalvin yeast in this one? I have K1, 71B, and D47 all on hand. Thanks.

K1 or 71b both are fine, this time of year d47 might get a little too warm for its liking...

Finally started my batch for 2013 with 15 lbs rhubarb and 3 lbs frozen peaches. Smells awesome and it's only been soaking 1.5 days.

Going to bring up 2 or 3 of the 1.5L bottles from last year to share at the lake during the week of the 4th. I'm sure it'll be gone by midweek.
