4.9 / 5.010 ReviewsExcellentGreat base, mix this with Rhubarb and you will have a lively, light, blush that will turn heads and make people smile on first sip... I wouldn't necessarily follow the can instructions verbatim - use as more of a guide - and grab a good wine making paperback.August 25, 2011Know your ingredientsI used an entire can to make one gallon of plum wine, it was delicious. I will be buying this again to make another gallon next year._x000D__x000D_This is an excellent base, but you have to know your ingredients. Plums require more cans than some other fruits to avoid a thin tasting wine. I typically use 4-6 pounds of plums per gallon_x000D_Don't be surprised if you make 3 gallons with one can that it comes out thin.January 9, 2013Pretty good, but use moreEach on of these fruit cans has 96oz(6lb) really thats not enough fruit for even a 3gallon. You should use at least 5lb of fruit per gallon of wine. These make some pretty tasty product if you use 1can per gallonAugust 16, 2012Subtle flavorAn excellent base, with a nice flavor and aroma. But it's not strong, so I use more than for other fruits. It's not enough for a 3 gallon batch, unless supplemented by grapes or other fruit. One can per gallon works fine.June 4, 2013Pleasant subtle flavorI use a ratio of a can to a gallon of water and made a pleasant tasting and smelling plum wine. You can probably get away with 1 can to 1.5 gallons of water, but I wouldn't go below that.September 17, 2013nice plum flavor, great when blendedIt really shines when blended. A can is not enough for 3 gallons, but 3 cans makes a great 6 gallon wine. It's also good when blended. I suggest getting a recipe book for ideas.October 22, 2013Dont skimpI made an awesome plum fruit wine using more plum concentrate and less water. I used 2 cans for 5 gallons, plus some extra base I had. 1 can would be ok for 2-2.5 gallons.December 3, 2013FlavorfulA quality base with a good but subtle flavor and aroma. One can makes a fabulous 1 gallon wine. I would use at least 2 cans for a 3 gallon wine, or at least supplement 1 can with other bases.January 30, 2014Rich thick flavorThe more cans the better, its a good quality base, that makes a good wine if aged.March 6, 2014Very light flavorI fermented up a 3 gallon batch with Montrachet._x000D__x000D_It came out slightly pink with a very light flavor. Very much like a lightly flavored tea._x000D__x000D_Tasty but not what I was looking for._x000D__x000D_I can see it being blended with something with a sharper but not overpowering flavor.February 2, 2012
