Heres my cider story.
This year i decided to juce my apples since i was feeling too lazy to peel and slice them for pies. I use an old hand crank meat grinder with the breading disk instaled. I washed the apples, quartered them, and didnt bother in coring them. I put an insolated water cooler under the grinder to catch the juice that comes out where the grinder screw mounts into the grinder (works great). The cooler has a spigot mounted about a half inch from the bottom. When I was grinding some of the smashed apple fell in along with alot of foam. When i was done juicing i drained the cooler with the spigot. Using the spigot i only get juce. no heavy sediment and no foam. After that i boiled all the juice. I know this isnt recomended but i was originaly just going to use the juce to drink as juice. Anyway i froze a few containers and put some in the fridge. I left three containers in the back of the fridge for about three months. They got plump with pressure. I tried about a cup full and it was really good. Great carbonazation with a little tartness. Its not really dry but I like it that way. Was this a dangerous way to make cider? I didnt get sick or go crazy. How long will it keep? Give me some advice.
