Frozen Strawberry Wine

 

5 gallons

 

It's basically Jack Keller's #162 Frozen Strawberry with the addition of pectic enzyme and oak.

 

15 lbs. frozen strawberries 

5 11-oz. can Welch's 100% White Grape Juice Frozen Concentrate 

9 1/2 lbs light brown sugar

10 tsp. citric acid

2 1/2 tsp pectic enzyme 1 1/4 tsp. grape tannin water to make 5 gallon

5 tsp. yeast nutrient 

1 package Red Star Côte des Blancs wine yeast 

 

Starting SG was 1.102 on this batch. I don't have any acid figures because I didn't have my tester then. I also used a French Medium OakBOY for the 4 months it was in the secondaries.

 

Word of advice: De-gas the crap out of this wine as much as you can. I thought I had and we opened a test bottle (375ml) not too long ago and it still has a little "bite" to it. So, more aging....
