    How did it turn out? Would you do anything different? You didn’t add any yeast?

    Hi Kealahi,
    I was back in NY about a month ago and got to try some of this soursop wine that my brother still had left. It turned out pretty well, a bit of residual sweetness and no harsh aftertastes. We did use a packet of Lavlin 71B yeast with this batch of wine.

    You said your soursop wine had a bit of residual sweetness, is that what you wanted. I love soursop and cant wait to make some wine with it but I want it to be on the sweet side, because of that should I change the type of yeast?

    Hi Dwaine,

    I only had this once, and the sweetness was fairly light. My brother, who brewed this one, might know better. I would probably use the same type of yeast, but maybe add a little more sugar or do some back-sweetening before bottling to make it into a sweeter wine. Let me know how yours turns out.
