Here's a picture of the first day in secondary, already bubbling (about every 10 seconds..)



Looks delicious!

I poured one cup at a time into my secondary, but I lost count at either 4 or 5.. so I poured in another 1/2 cup.. so I either ended up with 4-1/2 cups or 5-1/2 cups.. either way it looks really red and really delicious!

Do you use regular priming sugars before bottling with this? I didn't see it on the recipe. Ever tried Muntons Kreamy-X Primer for head retention?

I used priming sugar too.

I tasted it before I bottled it.. it was VERY tangy.. but im excited to try it. 2-3 more weeks baby!

Yes! After 2 weeks in primary, I put another in the fridge, and tasted it..

Let me just say, if this were eBay, I would be writing something like.. "GREAT PRODUCT FAST SHIPPING WILL DO BUSINESS AGAIN A+++++++"

Awesome recipe dude!
