  1. just checking if the date here is right, did you really leave this in the secondary for a year and a half? is that required? any additional notes on this one? thanks

    • it took a very long time to clear, then I back sweetened it, and it clouded up.
      And a few other wines needed more attention…

  2. Great thanks. I made up a five gallon batch of the mojo last night.

    • Yea! keep us posted and lets compare the notes.
      You will like it!
