Just a little under two months, can't wait to taste it.

I'm sipping my latest batch, right now.

Man, this stuff is great. I used rapid rise yeast this time, because it was the only bread yeast available to me, and it still worked like a charm!

Next time I go to the store, I'm getting the parts to make another batch. Now that I know I can use widely-available rapid rise, yeast, I don't even have to go to a fancy farmer's market.

Good to hear, I used rapid rise not even thinking about it. I always have a bunch of that on hand for my homemade pizza crust.

Here's a picture of my JOAM after two months.



It doesn't seem as clear as the other photos I've seen. I followed the recipe to the T.

Just wait, you'll wake up one morning and it will be clear. Also try not to move it to much, the bread yeast does not form compact lees so it will kick up if you slightly move the carboy.

if the 15/3 on there is your start date you have a few days before hitting the full 2 months, things will clear up.

For the record, even the mixed berry version I made cleared enough to see my hand through after 3 months. Just give it some time.

It all depends on what type of honey you use I bet. I used raw orange blossom and it still has a ways to go after 2 months. There are lots of variables so we need to just focus on other brews and let this one finish on its own. I still can't stop checking on it everyday tho LMAO
