The proof is in the tasting
So here we are 14 months later and time to taste and bottle. It cleared in the carboy several months back by itself to a crystal clear but orangey hue, but it is a quite beautiful yellow in a crystal glass. Taste is slightly hotter than commercial wine but a lovely crisp taste. Not semi sweet but not semi dry either – maybe just above dry is the best way to describe it. Interestingly, it has very different tastes at room temperature and chilled. I could not have asked for a better outcome. Just goes to show you that even first timer brewers get lucky!!! Thank you all for the encouragement and for those who if you haven’t tried – jump in!
Now it is time to get on a schedule of at least one batch per month.
