Hope so. Broke my hydrometer the night I brewed and just haven't gotten to get a new one.

I would try later on in the fall once the temps drop a bit. From what I've heard the warmer months have more acetobacter present, probably why it smells vinegary. I think the cooler months; late Oct, Nov till spring are better.

Sounds like you made some interesting salad dressing though.

Are you sure you want to drink something that tastes like New Jersey?

I kid! I kid!
Meh.

How else do you think they created a Long Island.

Well after some thought and some sampling I'm dumping this. It's vinegar, and it horrible. I'll keep trying and report back in the future.

No where near enough time to know if this is bad or not. You need to let it sit at least 9 months minimum

I once had a case of horrible BO at Laguardia but, I think that was from a long flight and no shower.

+1 you're gonna need to let this one sit for a long while before you can pass judgement.
