Re: First time, trying a batch of jaom and need help
I would suggest that [next time] you use wine or ale yeast, not bread yeast. You don't need to live near a brew shop to get the right stuff. Dried wine, champagne and ale yeasts will ship just fine. I can't imagine the sort of flavor bread yeast provides.

had a taste of alcohol. It was very sweet but definitely strong alcohol. I am not at all a big drinker and dont drink much, so maybe this is why, but i did catch a small, quick buzz feeling, off one taste. Hard to describe, but it went straight to my head, but didnt taste strong like a wiskey wouldve.
