I'm down! Mine's a bit weird as well so it's all good. Well, weak more than weird. These low temps wreaked havok on my brew temp. Mine will be ready for drinking this weekend if anyone else is down. Not sure if I'd able to host though. I'd have to check what the plans are with SWMBO.

Well, I don't think I have anything going on either of those, but I could be wrong. I'll double check for sure, but does anyone else wanna weigh in on a time and place as well? The more the merrier! I'd say you wouldn't even necessarily need a batch of your own if you don't have one ready, it'd just be nice to meet up with other cider makers. I'll find out tonight, Marvaden what those nights look like. Maybe I could host, but I'm in a townhouse so not much better off.

I didn't end up priming my cider like I planned. The taste just isn't there yet. I had read multiple places that you can bottle a cider in 3 weeks. But when it came down to it, its just not ready. I read another book and it said the number one problem people have with cider is not waiting long enough. They recommended waiting at least 9 months. So I've decided to do just that, going to start tasting it again in 6 months and see where its at.

What changes over time for them? Mine are very young and I did an all brett brew, so I really don't know what the appropriate time line would be for them

Note that they don't have any hot alcohol or diacetyl. The lambicus one tastes like cheese though......

Well, I'm not really sure, the change is it tastes better. Not sure if thats due to just mellowing of intense flavors or secondary fermentation. Probably both.
