I transferred the orange wine to the secondary today, since major bubbling had stopped. there was a lot of sediment!

It smells...funky. I tasted some, and it doesn't taste like it smells. It has a strong raw alcohol taste, which is to be expected I think at this stage, and tastes a bit sour. I decided not to toss it, because I have hopes it will actually mellow out after several months to something ok. No taste of vomit, though I can see where someone might associate the smell right now with that. To me it isn't vomit though, just...strange.

This sounds like a well meaning Pruno. Props for the effort. Definitely let us know how it ends. Welcome to the world of fermenting, it can only get better j/k it might be great.

Don't listen to them about the pruno. You may have a nice drink on your hands in a few months. I've wanted to do this for awhile but am really lazy. Hope everythiing mellows.

From what I can see most of the jack keller recipes unless they're made from pure juice, which is very rare, are just prunos of one type or another.

If this orange wine turns out to be good I'd be very interested in trying it myself. I work at a produce store so I have an unlimited source of free citrus fruit!

Dan,
Have faith I have Lemon and Tangerine trees growing in my yard I make citrus wines from them every year. They will taste like rocket fuel and ass at first give them a year and they will taste good. After 2 years its fantastic.

Hard to describe. Salty, a little nutty sometimes.
