View Full Version : Fruit color preservation

So I have a batch going that taste great so far. But, the nice erd color (cherry) I started with has moved toward brown. I have read before there is a chemical I could have added to keep the nice color. Please tell me what it is. Thanks

Plain old pectinase is supposed to do the trick, but Scott Labratories and other companies produce enzymes for professional winemaking that are made specifically for color retention (http://www.scottlab.com/uploads/documents/downloads/223/Opti-Red%2012-7-10.pdf).

Yup what he said, along with sulfites, and just plain trying to avoid oxidizing the mead.
