So got home a few days ago, but have been busy with the usual mundane details and building a son of fermentation type chiller. No bottle bombs have gone off! Between friends and I about 10 are gone...no gushers either. Only myself and one other person seem to like it though. Typical comments seem to be "Wow! It's tart." and "It smells kinda funky." One guy even complained that it tastes "kinda like fermented plums"... Oh well, more for me.
Oh yea, and no laxative effect noticed jessup. Strike that one off the list of possible home remedies I guess.
