 You're damn right. Speaking of, the Harvestwine is fermented. Overshot again, down to gravity .994(!) and very dry. tastes mostly like a strong, relatively characterless wine with faintly vegetal notes.

First is a pic of how the orange has been sucked out of the butternut, second is after the first racking, away from most of the sludge.

And I DID end up getting a three-gallon... broke it in with a pineapple-cherry cider, hesitantly named "Cherry Popper".

The ingredients before, the ingredients heating, and everything together in the fermenter.

2.25 gallons unfiltered apple juice, 1 qt tart cherry juice, 2.5 lbs frozen pineapple. 12 oz brown sugar, 3 lbs orange blossom honey. Tired right now, it's a bit of an unruly baby- a little too much liquid, I think, it's fairly constantly needing a little cleanup and maintenance. Not all pets can be low-maintenance, though, eh? Smells like heaven, though. Since my ciders have all gone to ~1 gravity, I made this one with that in mind, so it should actually only get to somewhere between 10 and 11 percent this time.

My heart stopped when I read:

"And I DID end up getting a three-gallon... broke it"

I thought you dropped it. :3

Haha, no, that one's plastic. Hard to break, easy to move.

Ever see the videos of teenagers smashing milk in the supermarket?
