Here is an article that I wrote for a homebrewing magazine that 
might be a start.  If you have other questions, let me know.

  Thanks, everyone for the suggestions!  

  Bob, I have never heard of "perry" but would love to find more information.  I make wine and beer from kits now but look toward using my own homegrown fruits in the future.  I don't have a cider or wine press but might try making some perry on a small scale using a small juicer or Kitchenaid fruit strainer attachment.  Do have any instructions?

  Too many Asian pears is a great problem!  First I would eat all them
  that you can.  This helps you to learn the differences in tastes and
  textures.  There are many recipes to try.  Here is a link to several
  Asian pear recipes.

  Asian pears are also great to juice.  Unlike European pears that
  grind into almost nothing, Asian pear texture is more like apples.
  If you have a cider or wine press you can add rice hulls to get better
  extraction.  After you have the juice, you can ferment into perry, a
  hard pear cider with ~7% alcohol by volume.  Perry is like hard apple
  cider but has a small amount of residual sweetness from sorbitol
  that makes a unique drink.
