Does anyone have a recipe including initial SG and acidity? We have a
lot of catcus in Texas this year and thought I would make some wine.

My $.02.....

I'm a newbie at this craft, but I helped my dear ol' dad for years, back
home...

After 5 tries at making ***ly pear wine, we finally threw in the towel.
We could come up with nothing but a pinkish, sweet, gooey substance similar
to overcooked okra!!???  

I would suggest getting plenty of info before starting this project.

Maybe if you freeze the fruit before you start???

Any way, best of luck!!

One of Papazian's books has a recipe for a ***ly pear mead
(maybe _Complete Joy of Homebrewing_?).  You could substitute sugar
for the honey.

Jeffrey: Thanks for your reply.  I am trying, in fact, have already started a
batch following the receipe from "Ghana" on this web site. The color is
beautiful. I found you can clean the fruit of "stickers" with sandpaper.
