I believe that I know when to retire the solera. I put the wine thief in thru the pellicle and
pulled out a small sample. The taste was overwhelming acetic acid vinegar. I guess technically
I could use the cask to produce more vinegar but, I do not believe that is the direction I
wish to persue......The liquid looks good and smells great...taste is vinegar....cherry vinegar.R.I.P.
May be it'll become a nice planter in the yard
