Default Strawberry & Lime TC

Slight hicup with too much sugar so had to make some adjustments.

16.5 ltr AJ
3 ltr RGJ
1.5 kg sugar
Juice of 9 limes
1 ltr strong tea
2 ltr water
4 Lowicz Strawberry (plus a further 1 for priming)

2 tsp Pecto
1 tsp yeast

SG 1.07, expected 10.5%, a bit stronger than I intended.

I was aiming for a bit stronger flavour so will wait to see how this turns out.

Oh, and I have it in my 30 ltr FV in case fermentation goes daft.

I need to curb my enthusiasm a bit. I was aiming for 7%. However, I won't complain if its drinkable.

That’s the fun part !
I made a ginger beer last year that was so refreshing to drink but...

1 bottle and I was giddy.
2 I was wobbly.
3 I fell over !

Sooooo strong !

This finished out at 9.8%. It took longer than expected to ferment out.

Actually tastes quite good.

Now bottled and awaiting secondary fermentation.

Oh FFS. Opened a bottle tonight. Completely pished on a 1.5ltr.

Next time MUST make sure to check potential alcohol content twice.
