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?

a little cinnamon and nutmeg
1 lb thompson raisins

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.
