OK 1 month has past and I wanted to give an update on the Raspberry Zinger Bochet and show some pics. I did not have a hydrometer when I made this but I do now. The GotMead calc suggests this had a gravity of 1.108. When I checked it was at 1.028. So this is looking to be at about 10.7% ABV give or take a bit. I gave the hydrometer sample a small sip and I am pleasantly pleased! The first taste to hit the tip of the tongue is a distinct tart raspberry taste immediately followed by the alcohol hot and finishes with this funny but good caramel/honey flavor. It is a bit sweet for my taste so I hope the gravity drops a bit more too about 1.01 or so. I did rack this off the lees hoping it will clear a bit better without all that extra yeast and sediment in there. Enjoy the pics!
