September is month of preparing wines. This time it will be another experiment – quinces wine because this year was good for them and we get more than 20 kg these sour, yellow, hard fruits
Here is more than 5 kg of quinces in vintage basket
Usually size of quinces are around this one. In internet you can find size that remembers pear
For us this is the main reason why we have quinces. We chop them in slices than strew sugar on top and wait 12 hours than you can get tasty syrup and sliced quinces which we dry out and eat in winter
After chopping in slices you get core with little seeds which I throw in squeezer to get juice. I thought that 2 litters of juice will be enaught because it is quite extremely sour and these are particles which stays after all is done.
Recipe is: 2 litters of quinces juice, 10 liters of fresh water, 3 kilograms of sugar, yeast. Gravity was 1090 or 21. Done and wait!
Some inspiration from hoppy Brew Dogs beer called Challenger which has ultimate taste and extraordinary way of exposure
