    Yeasties seem to be slowing down a bit. I've moved the 2ndary into a cooler (about 65-68F) area

    The fruit in my first JOAM never did drop and I left it for about 3-4 months. Didn't know or

    :rockin: WOW. Some great ideas. In reading through all the posts, I think I like the idea of an

    as I'm w...

    I brewed up my first Joe's Ancient Orange just over 6 months ago. I too had an aftertaste that
    was best described as "rubber stopper". This was after having it "age" for about 2 months.
