OK, fruit dropped and I just bottled the stuff. I tasted it and it's horrible! First, it's REALLY strong, which isn't the issue; the issue is a funky, not in a good way, aftertaste. It is also not sweet at all, which it's supposed to be. I still bottled it and I'm gonna see what happens. Someone, please tell me this stuff gets better because what's all the rave about otherwise?
I scaled down from the one gallon because i only had 2 pounds 14oz of honey. I used less water to compensate a little bit less yeast.
