2 months agoPlums?? Bloody Plums???Thar must have been a hundred of them in there! Attacking me!
I got them in the bucket and poured fermentation capable warriors upon them!!! Now Plum wine is not just for breakfast any more!
Sincerely, this was my first attempt at anything resembling plums (odd since they look like big grapes!), and it is a delightful treat. I Quite encourage and recommend it. Do not offer it to Non epicureans for they will surely over indulge. It is delicious!February 11, 2018Purchased
9 months agoRich thick flavorThe more cans the better, its a good quality base, that makes a good wine if aged.March 6, 2014FlavorfulA 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, 2014Dont 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, 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, 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, 2013Subtle 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, 2013Know 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, 2012
