#70 Dragon Blood (Triple Berry Skeeter Pee)

I made my next batch of Skeeter Pee but this time the taste was non-existent.  I let this one sit in secondary for much longer and tasted it before adding the sugar at the end.  I also had a problem with the FG at 1.020. So I decided to create something similar to Dragon Blood as written up by DangerDave.

ABV: 10.4%

16.0 cup              Washington, DC

                      DB (20 cups)

                      DB (2 tsp)
3.00 tsp              Yeast Nutrient
                      DB (4 tsp)
