OK, my first batch is at the sit and wait for it to age and clear stage.

I've GOT to do something to keep me from messing with it now.

I've got a couple of quarts of antique rose petals I gleaned from my favorite rose bush this Summer. I don't ever use chemicals on my roses, so I sealed them up and tossed them in the freezer.

I am aiming for a semisweet to sweet rhodomel in a 3 gallon batch.

Has anyone got a tried and proven recipe for me? I'll be running a 3 gallon batch. My local wine store is partial to Lalvin - and so far I am too, but I'm not set in stone on yeast type or brand.

Thanks in advance.

Let me know how this works for you. I have been curious to try a Rose Rhodomel. Here is a link to one of the rose recipes here.

Thanks GntlKnight,

I've seen this recipe posted here and elsewhere on the web. I will modify it for my 3.5 gallon carboy and hopefully get started this week.

I'll letyou know how it goes.
