    How long is it good for

    I bottled the beer and now in the bottles even there is a fine layer of white powderish film on the top of the beer in each bottle. Has anyone ever seen this before? Yeast should settle out to the bottom right? This is laying on the top layer of the beer.

    Malt Extract

    Why does malt extract need to boil or simmer for so long? Isnt it disolved in the water after only a few minutes? What is the benefit of a 60 or 90 minute simmer?

    Cherry Wine.

    I did add potassium Sorbate at the end before bottling and sweetened the wine. It made a big improvement in the taste but unlike commercial wines I have had at vineyards etc, it does not taste particularly like cherry. More like I sweetened some red wine or something :)
