We bottled the Sour Cherry Crick last night and I've got to say...what a beast!
A very pink beast! The sourness came through great, both in aroma and taste. It finished lower than I expected, with a Final Gravity of 1.013. It was a little sour for Carla's taste, but I found it superbly tart. Uncarbonated it tasted almost like a fine wine to me, very dry, with barely a hint of cherry.
We dissolved 6.2 oz corn sugar in 2 cups of boiling water, then cooled it to around room temperature. Pour while stirring:
And funny enough, later in the night while drinking sour mash whiskey in celebration, I thought I kept smelling the Crick. After a couple of drinks I realized I was smelling the whiskey!
