6/5/20, Strawberry-raspberry

The medium batch was on the sweet/weak side. We used fresh strawberries and raspberries and pureed and added 1/3 cup plus 1 tsp sugar and made 10 bottles.

The large batch was also on the weak/sweet side. We made 13 bottles with 1 tsp sugar.

We pulled the straw-raspberry at 2 days and it ok – slow eruption but manageable.

5/28/20, Pineapple Mint Express

Large batch was strong and slightly sweet but not too vinegary. We wanted to try something different so we added 1 tsp chopped fresh mint leaves, 1/3 cup blended thawed frozen pineapple and 1/2 tbsp sugar. We made 10 bottles.

The medium batch was strong as well and we made 12 bottles using 1/2 tbsp of sugar.

We pulled the first pineapple at 2 days and it had a pop with some decent fizz. The rest were refrigerated at 2 and a half days and with the additional half day bottles were started to ‘erupt’ more.

5/20/20, Plain

We did another all plain bottling. This time both medium and large batches were quite strong. We made 20 bottles using 1/2 Tbsp of sugar.

5/4/20, Passion Fruit

We used about 13 passion fruit and strained out the seeds w a little water and made over a cup. Using the medium batch (a tad strong just a little) added additional cup of distilled water and 2 pumps sugar water. We made 7 bottles w 1/3 cup passion fruit juice and 2 tsp sugar.

The large batch was on strong side we used 1/2 Tbsp sugar and made 15 bottles.

We pulled passion fruit at 4 days and was just right – a little bit of eruption but not much.

4/10/20, Passion Orange

The medium batch was very strong probably due to warmer weather. I concocted a passion-orange mixture w 3/4 cup fresh passion fruit w seeds (mistake all fruit we had) 1 cup orange juice and 1 cup water and blended. Seeds did not completely pulverize like i had hoped and was left with tiny beads. We added 1/2 Tbsp of sugar and made 6 bottles.

The using large and leftover medium batch used 1 tsp sugar and made 15 bottles of plain.

We pulled passion orange 4 days and it was too long. Explosive but manageable if you pop and bleed about 5 times.
