1/13/20, Tangerine Dream

The medium batch was good – not too strong/vinegary with the right amount of sweetness. We used 1/3 cup of tangerine juice, 1/2 Tbsp sugar and made 11 bottles. We borrowed from the larger batch to make the last 3 bottles.

The large batch was good – a little weaker – but good. We made use 1 tsp of sugar and made 11 bottles.

1/5/20, Raspberry dream

The medium batch was strong and a bit vinegary with a slight sweetness. We pureed frozen raspberries and used 1/3 cup of puree, 1 Tbsp sugar and made 12 bottles.

For the large batch which was a good sweetness w a slight but not strong vinegar we use 1/2 Tbsp sugar and made 11 bottles.

Pulled them at 2 days and they were not explosive. Unfortunately, I have had a cold for the past week and can’t tell whether it’s sour or I just can’t taste sweet :).

The medium batch seemed a bit weak tea-wise but had a bit of vinegary bite with a little sweetness. We used 1/3 cup pink grapfruit juice, 1 Tbsp sugar and made 12 bottles

The large batch was a good strength teawise with a perfect sweetness (not too much or too little). We used 2 tsp sugar and made 11 1/2 bottles.

Grapefruit was pulled at 4 days and it had barely a pop but had good fizz.

12/13/19, Tangerine Dream

The large batch was a good strenth – not too strong or weak. We made 12 tangerine dreams with 1/3 cup tangerine juice and 1 Tbsp sugar.

We made another 11 bottles of plain with the medium batch (just right) w 1/2 Tbsp sugar.

We pulled the tangerine at 4 days and it was good – not much pop but a little fizz. It will continue to ferment in the fridge.
