Default A few pics of various progressions

Here's the white grape/raspberry in secondary (center,) and apple/cherry (right) about to be oaked,


A glass of the apple/cherry stolen from the wine thief...OG 1.110 FG 0.096
cleared nicely


And the apple/cherry with French Med roast oak added


In primary is 6 gals of skeeter pee, can't wait to try this stuff!


From what I've read, the pee can be a cantankerous fermentation. But with attention to detail and the right temps...


GANGBUSTERS!

These all look wonderful! And good call on the skeeter pee. It's time to start thinking about spring/summer of next year.

Quick Qs. What was your apple to cherry ratio? Did you use juice, whole fruit or something else?

Nice color and clarity on the cherry. Never done skeeter pee. Just can't seem to fit anything extra into the schedual. ...

Don't know the ratio, from concentrate... old orchard.

About the pee, This is my first attempt. I think I've done every thing right...I plan on taking to our annual canoe trip in june along with the apple/cherry.

Thanks. As for your schedule, there's nothing on it more important than starting a new batch... pick up some more carboys!

Lol, you bet. But its tough to convince SWMBO that "one more fermentor" won't take up too much space.

On a side note: bottling today!

And here's the oaked apple/cherry ready for bottling! got 12 1.5L bottles filled plus two pint masons. The flavor doesn't seem to have changed all that much (Not that the non-oaked flavor of this batch is fresh in my mind) but the mouthfeel has improved incredibly, I will be doing this again for sure. I added the oak at the time of above photos and bottled at the time of this post. The bag of chips I used said it was enough for 25 gals, I eyeballed half the bag into this 5 gals.
