My all-grain batch has been in the secondary for 3 weeks. I made this brew without having tasted the original Dragonmeade Final absolution. I made it because there were 32 pages of posts about the recipe, which I considered good enough. A friend from Detroit brought me a 4 pack of the the Final absolution, and I'm drinking one now. All I can say is.... YUM! I hope mine turns out as well!! I will bottle next weekend, and will let it carb in the bottles for a month before I pop one open. I can't wait till May when I can drink one!
