My pears showed up. Now I need a plan of attack.
What I have: paint strainer, cheesecloth, various pots, all my regular brewing stuff. I don't have a juicer, or access to a juicer.
When I crushed blackberries, I just got two pots that nested together, put the blackberries in the bigger pot, and stood on the smaller pot to squish the berries.
The pears aren't ripe yet. I was thinking of waiting until they get ripe then just squishing them whole. Is that a good idea? I also thought of cutting them up or grinding them, squishing them in the pots, then squeezing the pulp in the bags to get more juice out.
i was also thinking of brewing a session mead on some of the pulp to get some more flavor from it.
