Default Pear Cider

as i am quite new i was just curious what i could achieve and how long it would take for a pear cider to get to bottling stage.

i have just started the pear cider, it had a gravity reading of 1.058 and is a batch of 1 gallon.

im not to sure if it needs to be racked, placed into secondary fermentation and after how long.

any help would be Appreciated.

Another Brit! We do exist on this forum then.

Not much help on pear ciders as I haven't tried one making one yet, although Tesco has 20% off all single botttle ciders at the moment, so I've got Bulmers, Kopparberg, Jaques orchard fruits etc all at home Pity I'm on-call for work so I've got to wait a week before I touch any!

Have you tried brewing any other fruit ciders? My 'summer fruit' cider (with fruit smoothie and extra strawberries & blackberries) is being prep'd tonight.

Just need some summer weather for drinking it all!!

represent the brits =D even if you are all the way in wales but i know what you mean about tesco's, i went in today and my mouth dropped all that lovely cider 20% off, yet i only got koperberg "pear and fruits"

let us know how your 'summer fruits' cider turns out, sounds like a good idea so you might have to send me the recipe

sorry to double post but i had trouble posting the image.



this is my pear cider roughly 12hours after starting.
i have made Turbo Cider before using wine yeast, but i have used cider yeast for this and im not sure whether the layer ontop of the juice is supposed to be how it is, it looks like a layer of cake sponge.. doesn't look very foamy but quite solid, not sure if it is solid though.
any response's to help give me a clear image of this would help greatly "as im still learning remember"

and for the questions i asked in my first post, anything about apple cider would do as it gives me a rough guide.
