5 gallon batch smells ok and taste high alcohol. SG-1.020. 3 gallon batch smells ok and taste good and sweet. SG-1.100. 3 gallon batch seems to be ok. Can I do anything to get the high alcohol taste out of the 5 gallon batch? Maybe put half of it in another vessel and add water?i will check hydrometer when i get home tonight in water. i will also take new SG reading. and do a smell and taste test again and let you know the results.
