I was really nervous about a batch of my brew tasting vinegary at bottling, and then, when I tasted it now at 2 months old, I thought it tasted funny, almost like an electrical fire.

But!!! after leaving it to air in the glass for a few minutes, it develops this wonderful PEACH taste! It's not an electrical fire at all. And, phew this...this is my strongest brew to date. This stuff, it is going to be dangerous. And there's about 7 gallon jugs from this batch ...

And so begins the ritual of leaving your beer open to the air to allow it to "breathe".

One step closer to winesnobbery.

It's a wine or a mead. I'm pretty sure this was the batch I took a bunch of assorted organic fruits from Wegmans and Feel-Rite, froze them, put them in a big stainless pot, poured boiling water over them, mashed them up with my hands, added in sucanat and some other sweeteners to around 3.2lb/gallon, and fermented for a week with a bedsheet over the pot, then racked into a carboy. For some reason the label on one of the bottles says 'mead with raisins' but I think that must be from a different batch, because this batch definitely has peach in it.
