DetailsThis 49 oz. can of Oregon fruit puree is prepared from peaches grown in Oregon's fertile Willamette Valley. Commercially sterilized and containing no preservatives, you can add this puree directly to your primary or secondary fermenter to flavor beer, mead, or wines. As the puree contains no seeds, add 10-15% less puree as you would fruit. One 49 oz. can will make 1 gallon of fruit wine. You should never boil the puree as it can create off flavors.

4.6 / 5.08 ReviewsSmells and tastes realMuch better than extract. After pouring it in with a funnel I slowly stirred it in. I repeated the stirring a weak later. Secondary fermentation lasted 3 weeks. This is much better than the peach extract I used once.January 28, 2014Adds a nice taste to beerThis tastes different and more mellow than the extracts that some kits come with. Its a subdued and natural taste and aroma. I added an entire can to the secondary while racking and gently stirred it in. It caused fermentation to restart and I gave it a couple of weeks. When I kegged there was some sediment at the bottom that I strained through a fine mesh hops back to recover additional beer.September 10, 2013Good PureeI got this in a mead melomel i purchased and expected i guess _x000D_like applesauce consistencyOctober 13, 2013Good for Mead and BeerI've used this several times in Melomel and Beer. It's so much better than artificial extract. I recommend using it in a bucket, not a carboy, so you can gently stir it in after pouring it in.November 22, 2013The real thingI've used this peach puree three times. Its got a nice natural taste. I pour it into my secondary with a funnel. After a few days I'll gently stir it up, because it settles, and I want to make sure it gets mixed in well. I usually end up with a little sediment at the bottom of my bottles, along with some yeast.December 28, 2013Great Quality Fruit PureeI purchased this puree and used it in my secondary with Midwests "Boundary Waters Wheat" all grain kit. It came out fabulous with a great hint of peach in a freshing summer beer. The fruit is A-1 quality but adds a large expense to a five gallon batch of beer. I also had a problem straining the finished beer. I do not know if I would do it again because it involved a lot of extra work. I think next time I will just add a little peach extract also available from Midwest.March 12, 2013Adding peach Puree to Brew.I added 1 can of the Puree to my batch of Blonde Ale. Bottled it on Dec. 19th. Sampled it on Christmas day. I think it is going to be good. We will see after New YearsDecember 28, 2015Peaches without the pits or skin!This concentrated juice, when added to Riesling juice and Oakes a bit makes a lovely white wine. I've made it once and hope to replicate the first batch, but in a greater amount!February 18, 2016

Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 9 answersIs one can enough for 5 gallons of mead or do I need 2?BEST ANSWER: It might be enough, depending on how strongly you want it to smell/taste of peach. I've seen a recipe use this for 3 gallon a batch, and a kit on another site uses both the apricot and peach in a 6 gallon batch, so it seems ppl on the internet prefer one per 3 gallons. Since your goal of 5 gallons is closer to the 6-gallon recipe, I'd recommend getting 2 ... or getting the apricot in addition to peach. However, I'm sure it would still taste great with only 1 can of peach. That said, I haven't used my can yet, so I don't know how strong/weak it will taste with only one.I added this to my Chardonnay after fermentation was completed but I am not tasting any peach flavor in my wine. It has been in the carboy about a week now. I looks like it all settled to the bottom but I don't want to stir it too vigorously. Do I need to wait several days for the wine to absorb the peach flavor?BEST ANSWER: I would stir it at least once a week for another month. , and see if additional flavor evident. If no luck rack and add some canned peaches for another month. good luckCan I use the peach puree to make Bellinis?BEST ANSWER: Sure can!When would I add this to my beer ? Secondary or primary ?
