Default A Happy Accident

On Nov 11, I picked up 8 gal of UV pasteurized cider in "milk jug" style plastic containers from a local grower. 6 gal I put into a carboy to ferment, 1 gal I put into the fridge to drink. The last gal, I did not open, and left it in the garage where it has been 50s - 60s.

Tonight when I got home, I noticed that there was about an inch of foam in the jug I left in the garage. The bottle was swelled so much I could not use the carry handle.

I put the jug in the kitchen sink and opened it carefully. The pressure released, i took a sample, and had some decent carbonated low alcohol hard cider.

I was just surprised to see that pasteurized, unopened cider would turn hard so fast.

My papa used to drink that all the tome. He called It his apple Jack (not to be confused with the spirit of the same name).
