Peach Wine from Canned Peaches

Post by Mark - N1 » Fri, 22 Oct 2004 01:01:46



A friend who works at a warehouse of a large supermarket chain,
stopped bye last night and dropped off numerous cans of peaches. Guess
they were damaged either in the warehouse or in shipping (and the
price was right, FREE). Anybody ever done peach wine using canned
peaches ?  Recipes ?

Thanks, Mark

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
left.

If I were in your shoes, I'd use more peaches per gallon, and skip the
tannin.

I used to have a book full of recipes for wines from canned and dried
fruit- don't recall the author.

    I'm a big fan of blenders. I'd frappe the hell out of those peaches
before I fermented the whole lot.

If it's not too late, I suggest draining and freezing the peaches to help
breakdown the cell structure. Also you need to add pectic enzyme to break
down the pectin. If you don't your wine will never clear. You will also need
to add some acid blend. Search for recipes with these ingredients.

Good Luck,
Robert

Mark, go to http://winemaking.jackkeller.net/reques21.asp for a recipe.

It can be very good or just so-so.  Fruit quality is the determinate.
