I think I'm going to go with the nibs, but I'm going to wait a couple of years.

Over-oaked it big time. It tastes like toasted plywood with a bit of honey sweetness. Since
it's got over 3.5 years to cool down should I let it go for now or should I whip up a couple
more gallons to...

I just racked mine for the first time since getting off its gross lees. It's already really

Mine is still in the primary. It has gone from an estimated 1.165 (read 1.15 +raisins and dates

Here are some pics from my Bochet. I boiled for a little over an hour. In the primary it is
dark, but not black. It has a reddish hue.SG was 1.15 exactly, but the chopped dates and
raisins probably st...

I did mine yesterday an inoculated today right at midnight.The most dangerous part by far is
adding water at the end of the boil. The honey at that point is well over the boiling point and
any water w...
