I am trying to cut back on the beer but still wanted a quick turnaround brew so I had something to drink every few weeks while all my big batches age etc. yada yada yada.
I picked up 10 of those cheap fruit punch concentrates from the store and did a 5 gallon batch using some brown sugar and honey to take the OG up to only about 1.055 and then pitched montrachet. The plan was to do like a 2-3 week primary and then bottle carb for a week and hopefully get something fairly low abv and drinkable... like a wine cooler or something.
Here we are 4 weeks later and its still bubbling... what the? I don't want to bottle it because its still putting off enough gas that I am guaranteed bottle bombs if I do. I haven't really had anything vigorously bubble for more than 2-3 weeks. Heck, I started a new banana wine just 2 weeks ago and its ready to move to secondary already. I can't figure out whats up with this brew and I want that primary vessel back!
