So got everything juiced and getting ready to start up a gallon or two of a pear blackberry wine. I know i don't want to dilute the pear at all however the blackberry juice is significantly stronger in flavor, what do you guys thank would be a good ratio? Like 2:1 pear to blackberry or even 3:1 just picking your minds!

Also will be using red star cotes de blanc to get a gentler fermentation

I think I'd go 3:1, maybe even 4:1 pear:blackberry. Blackberry can easily overpower pear. Test you ratio by mixing up a cup or so & tasting; use the ratio that tastes best to you.

I actually ended up close to a 3:1, it smells strongly of Asian pear but just a little hint of blackberry, pretty excited to get this one started!
