    Alright I just tried a bit. It starts with a cool sourness and ends with a light essence of
    banana bread. "very light and nourishing" is as good a description as I can give. There are no
    strong flavor...

    This is a fascinating thread to stumble into. The Arawak Indians of the Caribbean made banana
    beer too, and the 17th century buccaneers who sampled it found it 'very light and nourishing.'
    Their metho...

    on the Asian ban...

    Well after a few weeks it would turn to wine. I've never made it but from what I gather banana

    Yeah its a weird beverage, you drink it "live" while the yeast is still active and it is only
    mildly alcoholic. A lot of folks around here drink cider "live", during all stages of
    fermentation so it i...

    If its still actively fermenting, just add more honey. Should even itself out...

    Alright, this morning it is bubbling like mad! One of the most violent fermentations I have
