Question for you on the batch of OCP......did you "tweak" it with any everclear?
No, I didn't tweak it for a few reasons. First, Everclear isn't available in MA. I believe RI is the closest state to sell it. I thought about adding brandy but with all the craziness before Christmas when I made it, I forgot to add it when I racked to secondary. By the time I realized it, it was close to the time I could bottle. I still could have added it and then bulk aged a lot longer but impatience overruled!
It tastes great and has enough of a kick without anything added. Next time I may add brandy and will bulk age longer so my husband won't touch it! (Okay, maybe I'll be nice and make in 2 separate carboys and he can touch 1/2!)
