How the heck was it still fermenting after 2 months ? Do you use a hydrometer ? Because there really is no point in racking until the ferment is finished. Unless you want a stuck fermentation.
I made a JAO and deviated from the recipe big time. I didnt want to use bread yeast, I added cinnamon sticks, and nutmeg. I ended up with a "hot" alcohol taste, with a subtle bitter taste probobly due to the orange peels being ON the oranges while the ferment was taking place.
I drank a little bit of it, but I was advised to age this at least 6 months before tasting it. Apparently this "hot" taste is from a quick ferment, which wouldnt have happend with bread yeast.
Funny thing also it is not clearing very well, I never used any chemicals, only sulfite when I racked.
