    DangerDave's Dragon Blood Wine

    Good lord this stuff disappears fast!!! Well over half my first batch is gone, and I want my second batch to sit in secondary for a while to degas thoroughly before bottling so I very well might run out before my next bottling... So far everyone who has tried it loved it, can't decide whether...

    Pasteurize SP instead of using stabilizers

    Just seeing this now, I haven't been around lately. I'm glad to see you went through with the project:b. How was the finished product?

    Wasn't expecting this

    Just thought I'd check back in and testify to the miracle of splash racking. It's totally, completely gone. Not even a hint of it left. I added k meta just to be on the safe side after so much aeration, but the batch seems fine to me. Gonna let it sit a while longer before I bottle it though...

    Drawback of over processing fruit

    If it doesn't smell like rotten eggs, and all else seems fine, I wouldn't worry about it. There is definitely a smell to fermenting fruit, just a normal part of the process. Let it finish out, dont be too quick to dump anything down the drain Ps I have a batch that tasted like burnt vinyl...

    Pasteurize SP instead of using stabilizers

    Yup I've done it with great results. A neat trick is to fill a plastic soda bottle and just squeeze it every day until it feels like a fresh unopened soda bottle. Then you know it's built up enough pressure, and it's time to pasteurize.

    Wasn't expecting this

    Hi everyone been busy lately so haven't been on here much. I decided to check on my batch again tonight and the smell/taste is nearly gone. It looks like the combination of splash racking and time have helped so I gave it another splash racking to see if that would clear things up further...

    Un-degassed Skeeter Pee

    If you bottled without degassing, yes there would be some carbonation. It usually wont clear unless degassed, so you could end up with sediment in the bottle (it will clear in the bottle) A fun project that I played with was to oversweeten after fermentation was done, bottle carbonate (like...

    Email notifications

    I'm at a loss here. No idea why this site insists on sending me all these unwanted emails. So far the only thing that works is unchecking all the boxes and then I dont get any notifications on the site at all

    Dried Apricot

    I can just imagine. I put mine in a nylon stocking but the stuff that got through it made a huge mess. Lots of light fluffy lees that wont compact out.

    Dried Apricot

    I ate the rest of the apricots I had bought and, in the aftertaste, I could definitely detect a bit of what I smell and taste in the wine

    Lifting Glass carboy when full

    I lift them by keeping my legs straight, bending at the waist and lifting with a twisty jerky motion

    Wasn't expecting this

    Thanks sour grapes. I'll do my own research, just seeing what you guys had to say. I drew about an ounce tonight, still smells terrible. I tried swirling the glass, still bad. I tried the penny again, and after a few minutes, there was a noticeable difference. There may be hope yet. Going to...

    Email notifications

    Ok so unchecking those boxes caused the bell icon to stop working, but I'm still getting the emails. That's the opposite of what I want. Under contact details, messaging prefferances, there is a box that says: Receive email when a new conversation message is received Email notifications for...

    Dry Dragon’s Blood Recipe?

    I used one bottle of lemon, got about 11.5% abv and I like it that way. It might just be me but I felt the tartness was more from the raspberries. But I drank quite a bit dry, it was pretty good, and i might bottle half dry next time to get a good feel for it. I should get another batch going...
