No, haven't added them yet. Was going to wait the full two months in primary... but it seems clear enough now to do it. Just not sure if I should rack once more without raisins and then wait a month or if I should add them now and start the next step.

I'm in the same situation. I think I'm going to rack it onto the raisins. What did you decide?

I would go ahead and rack and add the raisins. Don't forget to top up.

Ok then, I'll rack it onto the raisins tonight. That stuff looks SUPER hot right now... could probably run a car engine off of it.

I racked it onto the raisins today. I didn't chop them up, as I was a bit limited on time. I'm guessing the yeast will chew threw them just fine.

I racked onto chopped raisins tonight. I only needed about 4-5 cups of water to top off after all the raisins for my 3 gallon batch.

have made this a few times now. with minor tweaks each time and has been awesome every time. just wondering if anyone has tried just bananas and sugar, without the raisins, acid blend etc? have two 5 gallon batches going right now thinking about skipping the raisins for a lighter bodied wine..

Anybody have an idea how I would scale the fruit if I were going to use strawberries as well? Or have a strawberry-banana recipe? Thanks


CHEERS!

Could probably leave it as is and add strawberries to secondary. Or cut back by 1/2 lb per gallon and add strawberries to primary recipe. I would opt to add puree to secondary forgoing the raisins. I think with strawberry added you would want a lighter body wine..

I would probably get the large container of frozen sliced strawberries and put in primary. In a bag, 5 days, drain don't squeeze. One container per gallon.
