Default Roddy's Strawberry and Lime TC . - 1st attempt

Well I finally got around to putting one of these on. All went together this morning and the lock is already showing signs of movement.

My Lowicz bottles however appear to now be in English. Have the same sugar levels etc but the bottles are 400ml not 440 like the Polish jobbies. Have used Roddy's template too, which is mega handy and aiming for 5.5%.

I've just finished my last bottle of raspberry and lemon with 1 lime version, it was my best yet yet and I've done about 60.

Ok. , 10 days in and we are down to 1.000. Gives me 5.5%
This smells wonderful and, surprisingly at this stage tastes really good too. No hard acidic edge to it. The lime comes through well.
All set to bottle tomorrow and batch prime with another 400ml bottle of strawberry polish yummy syrup!
Happy days

Half in swing tops, the other half in pets. The pets are already firming up.

Update - well, you know how impatient we can be? 5 days in the bottles. Grabbed a pet and chilled it down. Got some fizz, not great but I would not expect too much at this early stage. Taste, mmmmm, excellent. If this improves then I shall be VERY pleased. It is ok now and it should not be this young.
