Initially my gravity was stuck really high. I got the gravity closer to what it needed to be after I pitched a large Muntons yeast starter and the fermentation picked up again(used champagne yeast first). The final taste though isn't really my cup of tea.
It has a strong fusel alcohol taste to it so it's got a lot of bite!
Can't taste any cranberry's either. It's lightly carbonated and is somewhat sweet.
If I were to do this again which I won't, I would not have used champagne yeast. The guy at the brew store said that ferments too hot and I should have used a different yeast method. I think he suggested 2 different yeasts like a lalvin yeast and then an ale yeast to finish. This way both sugars get eaten and the first yeast doesn't kill the second yeast. Just be careful with this recipe!
