Well, after some troubled weeks I finally bottled my version (used D-47 yeast instead) today. It's been in the fermentor for 5 months and a half, and it did NOT clear completely. It is in fact pretty cloudy. I bottled using 0.5 liter swing top brown glass bottles.
I collected a sample to check for gravity and it ended @ 1.002 (from a SG of 1.092, so the ABV is somewhere around 12% yay!). The flavour is nice as is, it has some sweetness to it, and somehow reminds of a flavourful strong beer or wine, but it leans more towards the dry side. I love the stuff
It is already drinkable, but I will allow at least 1 month into the bottle before popping open the first one. Awesome recipe, thanks a lot Malkore!
