I'm trying a "Malty Cider", if you scroll down a ways you'll find a thread.
I sampled some yeasterday, after 5 days in the primary. Not much appl-y, plenty fruity (berries). Still plenty of body. Time will tell.
So far, I've had more experience thinking than I've had brewing....you don't think they are mutually exclusive, do you?
57 batches so far,
33 wine, mostly Loquat, peach, plum, prickly pear
22 beers and ciders
1 Tequila, from a prickly pear wine experiment that didn't work. I call it "Prickly Heat"
