Gadzooks!
I've never made a banana mel before and so I tossed a batch last week. Some fresh ginger root, nutmeg and cloves. Primary was a nice fizz for the first week, just on target. Then today - wham! The bananas kicked in and boy did things get productive. Popped the cap off the gas check with considerable force. Fortunately mostly gas so no big mess, but I've had to clean and replace the check three times today. Productive as all heck! Smells right tasty too. Maybe it was slow because I'm using D-47, but those guys are growing now!
