Picked up a few tins of this a while back with the intention to brew with it, but never got around to it. Anyway, I've had a big home brew declutter today and decided to use these up.
Recipe so far, fermenting on pulp -
2x tins Hartley's Black Cherry Fruit Pie Filling
1 campden tablet
A few simple questions. one, is this enough fruit or should I add some juice to this brew? I have approx 695g fruit so far - I assume I'll need more than that. If so, can anyone recommend a juice to go with this, preferably berry or apple rather than grape?
Second, should I add acid? I have citric, malic and lactic acid to hand. I would like to use a combination of citric and lactic acid if so, but will it have enough already? The tins of pie filling contain citric acid, but I don't know how much.
Third, will there be enough tannin in the cherry and blueberry skins or should I give it a little nudge?
