I'm not sure! This is a bit of an experiment, I've done a cursory search and banana is not very popular in the homebrew space. Maybe because it floats and is a mold risk, although I didn't get any fuzz. But if it is just a pineapple beer then that will be fine.

I never considered the buoyancy aspect of the whole thing. That's a good point.

Speaking of adult beverages, how's things in the lab?

Beer's bottled. Looks beery tastes beery. EH. Not fruity!

Mostly given away. People say it's good, but most people do if you give them free beer.

Got the stuff to make a repeat of Umbral Brew, that pomegranate blueberry cider from a while ago, but a 3-gallon batch of it. Expect that soon.

Bummer that the fruity flavor did not turn out. Any idea where the issue occurred and how to fix it?

I might have just needed more of it, or I might need to put the fruit additions later in the process, where fermentation won't affect the flavor so much. Hard to say. It's not even bad I was just being a bitch tbh. It tastes very like... normal. Like if you got some low-to-mid price beer you hadn't heard of before, you wouldn't be surprised if it was the taste of Island Milk in there.

This is the stuff I'm doing right now. No big recipe/picpost because this is a repeat of my favorite recipe so far- "Umbral Brew", the blueberry pomegranate cider from the dual batch I made a while ago. I figured after an experiment that didn't go my way, I might as well make something I'm confident I'll like. I think I might go for another mead or a wine next- some other experiment in a different vein. Maybe something with berries.

Umbral Brew?

Put Bayonetta on the bottle and pray Nintendo doesn't sue since they more or less own Bayo now.

Skews slightly fruitier and sweeter than the last time I made this- either down to different temps while it was fermenting or the fact that I used a different brand of honey. Hard to say. I should get a lagering fridge.

Changing jobs right now and my schedule is generally hectic so not sure when I'm going to start another batch... gimme a month, maybe.

I love both your zig-zag tablecloths and the congruous bottling. @_@

You cannot ever go wrong with strawberry!  Do you strain out all the seeds?
