Grape and Granary proudly offers Vintner's Harvest fruit puree in a wide variety of fruits. Fruit Puree allow the brewer or winemaker year around availablity for making fruit wines and fruit beers without the mess of dealing with fruit pulp.
For home brewing, we generally recommend adding 1 or 2 cans of Vintner's Harvest fruit puree into a 5 gallon batch of beer. The best time to add the puree is during the secondary fermentation. By adding the fruit during the secondary fermentation, less aroma and flavor of the fruit will be lost and the beer will remain clear without any chance of pectin haze. Use one can for a mild fruit character or use two cans for a more intenst fruit flavor.
For the making of fruit beers, we have had great success with the Sweet Cherry, the Peach, and the Raspberry.
For home winemaking, Vintners Harvest puree's can be used to make up to a 3 gallon batch of fruit wine. However, when making more than one gallon of wine per can, additional amounts of sugar, Acid Blend, Yeast Nutrient, and Pectic Enzyme should be added. A Hydrometer should be used to correctly start the wine with a Original Starting Gravity of 1.080 using regular household table sugar
