We once again used beautiful ruby grapefruit from the farmer’s market as this maybe the last batch from the vendor. We used the medium batch which came out perfect this week. We added 1/3 cup grapefruit juice and 1 tsp sugar and made 11 bottles.
The large batch was also perfect we used some to finish the grapefruit. We made 11 bottles of plain w 1 tsp sugar.
The medium batch was good strength though a tad sweet. We found beautiful ruby grapefruit at the farmers market and squeezed out fresh grapefuit juice. We used 1/3 cup per bottle, 1/2 tbsp sugar to make 10 bottles of grapefruit.
The large batch was good strength but also on the sweet side. We used 1/3 tbsp sugar and made 13 bottles.
The grapefruit was pulled after 3 days and was not explosive. It was on the sweeter side so will used 1 tsp sugar next time if the batch is sweet.
Large batch was strong and slightly sweet but not too vinegary. We wanted to try something different so we added 1 tsp chopped fresh mint leaves, 1/3 cup blended thawed frozen pineapple and 1/2 tbsp sugar. We made 10 bottles.
The medium batch was strong as well and we made 12 bottles using 1/2 tbsp of sugar.
We pulled the first pineapple at 2 days and it had a pop with some decent fizz. The rest were refrigerated at 2 and a half days and with the additional half day bottles were started to ‘erupt’ more.
We used about 13 passion fruit and strained out the seeds w a little water and made over a cup. Using the medium batch (a tad strong just a little) added additional cup of distilled water and 2 pumps sugar water. We made 7 bottles w 1/3 cup passion fruit juice and 2 tsp sugar.
The large batch was on strong side we used 1/2 Tbsp sugar and made 15 bottles.
We pulled passion fruit at 4 days and was just right – a little bit of eruption but not much.
The medium batch was very strong probably due to warmer weather. I concocted a passion-orange mixture w 3/4 cup fresh passion fruit w seeds (mistake all fruit we had) 1 cup orange juice and 1 cup water and blended. Seeds did not completely pulverize like i had hoped and was left with tiny beads. We added 1/2 Tbsp of sugar and made 6 bottles.
The using large and leftover medium batch used 1 tsp sugar and made 15 bottles of plain.
We pulled passion orange 4 days and it was too long. Explosive but manageable if you pop and bleed about 5 times.
