How'd this come out dude? I know wild weather use a lot of fruit tea in their beers and the taste is very full on, sometimes overly so.

Bottled this yesterday.
25gr sugar batch prime per 10lts.
The Rhubarb and Custard is BLM! :D Very smooth, silky and aromatic.
Nicola says it tastes like `Raspberry Ruffle`! :D
The Orange is a bit sharp, obviously it will mellow out into a Fantastic Beer! :D
Totally different mouthfeel to the R&C, so will wait and see.........
Very impressed with the expansion rate of Tea Leaves after a week in the Beer! :D

Sent from my sofa whilst draining the 250ml leftovers from bottling! :D
Yes, I could have used a 250ml bottle and kept it, but a 330ml bottle was used instead. (Forward Planning).
