My directions are actually the ones from the original post by Herk. It said 10-40 days for each step and the longer you let it sit, the better. I've literally never had the stuff until a few weeks ago at The Macaroni Grill, I ordered it to simply try what it is "supposed" to taste like.
What does letting it steep longer or shorter actually do? I figured it would let it get more lemony and more sweet.
Would you mind writing your recipe for when you make it? I have no problem deviating to try something new. If I like it, it'll let me narrow in on what I like.
