This stuff really came into its own with a couple months in the fridge (long story). Its more of a brownish orange than an orange. The day before his wedding last week I almost killed one of the grooms with this stuff (bad Creamy), and the wedding party cleared the gallon right out. I'm gearing up to make another batch toot-sweet.

Is there any reason I cant use, say, Nottingham if thats what I have laying around?

Id say the last portion was 6 months yes. It needs a little time before its really ready to roll.

But then... I've only brewed one gallon so far

Made a batch of this last night

5 lbs Carrots Grated
1 lb Brown sugar
5 oz corn sugar
2 lbs raisins
2 packets monotrachet.
boiled carrots for 15 minutes and drained hydrometer said 1.000. So I added the sugar now I boiled again another 20 minutes. Ended up with OG 1.030 this is before the raisins. Rack on 2lbs of raisins. My question is do carrots have any sugars or did I just not boil long enough.

Reason: 2 packets monotrachet.

I heard that boiling any fruit or vegetable isn't optimal for wine making. Did the recipe say to boil them, or call to pour boiling water over them in your primary?

No secondary
yield = 1 gallon

Ended up pretty dry. And strong. I'm on an empty stomach, but I poured myself a pint of this while bottling, and I feel it. yeayeah!


I'm glad this came out good, 'cause I started a five gallon batch a few days ago based on the smell of the one gallon batch. Ha!
I can't wait to see how it ages.
This is OP original post.
