tasted my traditional last night after 8 weeks in primary and is fantastic. plan to cold crash it then oak it for a week. depending on the outcome may do cinnamon and vanilla before carbing.

So, I made a batch of JAO around 6 years ago, froze it to remove most of the water content, bottled it with some more honey and then left it.

6 years later, I have somthing that almost tastes like honey port. this is just a little bottle but I still have about 3 liters of it left.

My next plan it to introduce some oak flavor to finish, and then add a vanilla pod as I put them in their final bottles.

this recipe, if you can be patient, is well worth the effort.
