so today my kvass looks like this. i removed the apples because they began to show signs of mold where they were not submerged in liquid. all the raisins are now floating unless i move the jar and then they sink again. it has not been quite a month yet so it may not be quite done but my curiosity lacks patience. i have tasted it and it is not something i will enjoy really or give to my dad for his birthday for him to enjoy as i had planned. i think it would frighten him actually.
it has a little of the off raisin flavors of wine gone bad with salt added. i want to love it but i don't. i keep tasting it though, reluctantly and a little at a time, expecting it to turn into something better and all the time pondering if this is how it is supposed to be.
next up beet kvass. i feel much more supported internet-wise with that kvass direction. and i love beets so it could be a heavenly match:)
