Anyway- drank one on an empty stomach to test the ABV and I'm proud to say I'm honestly buzzed at 720 a.m! I will probably drink the others tomorrow after a night on the fridge. But- the cider is tasty. Definitely going to let the other few gallons sit a while longer tho.
Those are the best days, a friend of mine would often drink a few shots of whisky and a beer with his bacon and eggs and call it a "roofer's breakfast"

Last years cider was made with EC-1118 and sat in the secondary a month. It carbed up nicely.

This year I used Red Star Chamagne and sat in the secondary a couple months. It's carving slowly and still isn't very fizzy.

I'm gonna move it to a warmer part of the house for a few days. I hope that helps.

Lol probably because he was a roofer...although he ended up drinking so much he had alcohol poisoning, then withdrawal caused seizures and a heart attack and nerve damage...
