That was actually the first batch of wine I ever made. I think I used
2 cans of peaches for a gallon, three pounds of sugar, and various
additives (ntrient, pectinase, acid, energizer, tannin) as usual.
It turned out to be a short-lived wine; it tasted very nice when I
bottled it, but lost a lot of peach flavour by the time I opened the
first bottle a few months later. By the time it was a year old, all
that I could taste was sugar, *** and tannin- not a trace of peach
If I were in your shoes, I'd use more peaches per gallon, and skip the
I used to have a book full of recipes for wines from canned and dried
fruit- don't recall the author.
