I would like a good Pear wine recipe, preferably one that DOES NOT involve
boiling the fruit in any way. I just need a good guideline to follow and any
info anyone can give me on problems they may have run into during the
process. I am new to making wines with anything other than grapes and need
as much good advice as i can get.

Thanks
Robert

     Hi, Melissa.  You could use any of the recipes that you have for
boiling on raw fruit.  One of the things that I do is to core. and
segment the pears, and put them in a lemon juice wash made with 1/4 cup
LJ to quart of water (the "wash water" can also be added to the wine).

     Freeze the fruit immediately until ready to use (cores to).  When
you're ready, put the fruit wedges into a blender and puree (do not
puree the cores, gently crush them so as not to break the seeds).

     Add the appropriate amount of pectic enzyme, acid, a can of
Welche's white grape juice per gallon of puree (add only one can of
water per can of juice), and  yeast.  

     Pour the puree into straining bags while they're in the primary,
and cover.  Squeeze the bags at _least_ daily and after about a week,
press the must from the bags and rack as you would normally.

OF THEM FROM THE BOOK" THE JOY OF HOMEWINE MAKING" BY TERRY GAREY.  SHE
IS VERY FUNNY AND INFORMATIVE.  REALLY LEARNED ALOT ABOUT WINEMAKING

Robert, I have several pear wine recipes posted on my web site.  Go to
the section "Requested Recipes" and look at the first two listings at
the bottom of the page.  Also, if you have Bradford pears, you can use
Jim's advice or the recipes under "Bradford Pear Wines" in the section
"Making Wines in Texas."  Personally, for hard pears like the Bradford
I always simmer them first as they are incredibly hard to puree raw.
