Notes

**1/2/2020- I stopped fermentation with 8g of a sorbate/sulfite mix from a wine kit and added 1qt of Pear Juice in to back sweeten. Then cold-crashed and kegged and after 4 months it is amazing! I bottled the whole keg in order to make room in the keezer, and also because it's not an everyday drinker.

12/19/2019- Made this with 1.75G of Apple Juice and 3G of Pear. Unfiltered, unpasteurized. Ascorbic Acid in juice, but shouldn't be a problem. It was poured onto a WL-007 Dry English Ale yeast cake. Fermentation started in about 1-2 hours. NOTE: The sugar is not really added to the recipe, the OG here was lower than my measurements.
