The medium batch was vinegary and strong. We added 1/3 cup tangerine juice and 1 Tbsp sugar and made 9 bottles
The large batch was not as strong but on the vinegary side as well. We made 14 bottles and used 1 Tbsp of sugar.
We pulled tangerine at 4 days and was slightly fizzy.
We have switched and are making the medium batch with fruit and the large batch will be plain.
The medium batch was strong and we used 1/3 cup tangerine juice and 1 Tbsp sugar to make 9 bottles
The large batch was just right and we made 12 bottles w 1/2 tbsp of sugar.
We pulled the tangerine at 3 days. Did not explode and had a little fizz but the bottles slowly continue to ferment while in the fridge.
The large batch was on the weak side. Am concerned as the 2nd fermentation from previous week is still not ready. We used pureed pineapple using 1/3 cup and 2 tsp of sugar to make 15 bottles.
The medium batch was very strong. We made 8 bottles w 1/2 Tbsp of sugar.
We pulled the pineapple at 2 1/2 days and it was perfect amount fizz and not explosive.
The large batch was perfect, not too sweet or strong. We used fresh squeezed orange juice from WF, 1/3 cup to 1 Tbsp of sugar making 14 bottles.
The medium batch was also perfect. We added 1/2 Tbsn sugar and made 9 bottles.
It’s been 8 days and the orange 2nd fermentation batch is still not fizzy and tastes very sweet. Will wait another day or two.
After 3 weeks the orange is a no go and we’ve thrown it out. Not sure what happened. We used the ‘fresh squeezed’ WF orange juice.
The large batch was on the weak side. We made 14 bottles using fresh strawberries 1/3 cup and 2 tsp of sugar.
The medium batch was very strong. We made 10 bottles of plain butch w 1/2 Tbsp of sugar.
We pulled the strawberry after day 1, day 2 but was on flat side. We ended up refrigerating at 2.5 days and it was perfect w enough fizz and not explosive.
The large batch was weak and sweet – not sure why as it was a very hot week and a beautiful giant scoby formed. We used a different tangerine juice not sure if it will be as good. We used 1/3 cup juice, 1/2 Tbsp sugar and made 13 bottles.
The medium batch was also oddly weak. We used 1/2 Tbsp sugar and made 9 bottles.
The tangerine took 7 days to fizz. It tasted good at 5 but lacked fizz.
