Default My First Batch of Wine

4# 14oz Red Seedless Grapes - Chiliean Wallyword special
2# 4 oz Dark Colored Plums - see above
8 fl oz Orange Purée - see above
(fruit was puréed in a food processor, total yield by volume about 3.5 quarts)
2.5 quarts of water
3# sugar

At 86 degrees the specific gravity reading was 1.110, temperature corrected I'm guessing is 1.113.

1 tsp of Peptic Enzyme

1/4 tsp of Yeast Energizer
added

Plan to pitch a package of Lalvin k1-V1116 yeast (INRA Montpellier)
In 12 hours

That recipe sounds interesting. Curious to see how table grapes, plums and oranges work out.

If the must is an accurate indicator of future flavor, then I think t is going to be pretty decent.

The plum flavor comes through, but only enough to extend the grape flavor. Since the oranges are such a small part, they really only add a slight acidity to the flavor.

Regardless, I'm looking forward to getting lucky on my first try or learning a lesson not worth repeating.

Cheers
