About mid-week the floating strips of zest settled back down at the bottom of the jar.
The cloudiness is still present except for the top quarter-inch or so. That’s a shame–I prefer the opaque yellow color, it looks far more appetizing to me. Still, it will be interesting to see if it continues to self-clarify or stays murky.
5 more weeks and we strain out the solid particles–we’re over the halfway hump!
In 4 weeks I start a smaller batch with a 1 week steep just to compare the two, along with a bottle yet to be purchased from the local liquor store.
A blind taste-test is sounding promising, some time in early October.
