    Cherrys StrawBerries and apples all turned out good. Have also used sorgrum but tha doesnt really count as a fruit does it? Want to try some habenjaro peppers eventually.

  4. Default Re: Using fruit

    I haven't tried a pepper mead yet, but I did make a jalapeno wine. It has a bit of fire in it. My brother mixes it with tomatoe juice to make bloody mary's. Says they're better that way than any other recipe.

    Here's the recipe I used for 1 gallon.

    ~14 peppers (with seeds for fire)
    15 oz of raisins
    2 # of sugar
    1/8 tsp tannin
    1 ? tsp citric
    pectin per size
    Blended peppers until they were finely ground. Put in boiling water with sugar. Allowed to cool, added other ingredients. Added yeast starter. Racked when fermenting had slowed considerably and bottled about 4 monthes later.
