Hey guys,
I'm making a cider and wanted to mix it up a bit so decided that I'll add peach puree. I ordered some Oregon Peach Puree and got it today. Originally I was planning on adding the whole can but after receiving it I've noticed how liquidy it is and now I'm worried it will overpower the cider if it's nectar-like. Does anyone have much experience with using Oregon Purees? How do they compare to using fresh fruit? Thanks for the tips!

Oh, also, does anyone have experience storing the puree after it's been opened? When I open the can I'm going to assume it's sanitary but how to keep it if I have extra?

I've used the Oregon cherry puree already in a cherry wheat. It was the normal sized can (about 50 oz) and liked the results from one full can. It wasn't overpowering and it was somewhat noticeable. A good brew. I would think the results would be similar for your cider too, depending upon what other ingredients you're putting in there. As for storing extra, I would put some vodka over the top of it and seal it up the best you can.
