My all-grain batch has been in the secondary for 3 weeks. I made this brew without having tasted the original Dragonmeade Final absolution. I made it because there were 32 pages of posts about the recipe, which I considered good enough. A friend from Detroit brought me a 4 pack of the the Final absolution, and I'm drinking one now. All I can say is.... YUM! I hope mine turns out as well!! I will bottle next weekend, and will let it carb in the bottles for a month before I pop one open. I can't wait till May when I can drink one!

Mine has been in secondary for almost 2 weeks and I'm adding 2oz of bourbon soaked oak chips to it.

Doing a 2 gallon batch. OG started out at 1.10 (!)

Day 7: Down to 1.026 (9.71% ABV!). Tastes pretty good. Very yellow.

Day 28: Bottled. Smells fantastic. Waiting 2 weeks and I'm popping some bottles!

Just keged this in my corny.. its super sweet and malty, strong hints of banana not to spicy. I'm wondering if its normal or maybe I did something wrong.. its drinkable but only one or two, the sweetness is almost overwelming.

How long was your fermentation?

Also I force carbed it in the corny, will it age/settle in the corny if I just leave it? Should I leave the co2 hooked up or no? In the fridge or not? Sorry for all the questions. *nooooob*
