Flavor Extracts offer ease and convenience for adding fruit flavors to beer, wine, mead or cider. Flavor extracts can be added prior to packaging. Gently stir the extract into the beverage without introducing oxygen, take a sample and taste. If enough fruit flavor is present, bottle or keg the beverage. If not, add in additional ounce(s), stir and repeat the process to achieve the desired flavor and aroma intensity. Each extract bottle label provides recommended dosing amounts as guidance.
