Default Second Cider is in the books...

Well, last year I made my first cider....


I used 5 gallons of cider from one of the local farms/mills and a vial of White Labs English Cider yeast. I back sweetened with Splenda. At six months, it tasted like crap....at 11 months, its great.

So, tonight we started our second. We picked a different Cide rmill this time, based on flavor of the original cider. Five gallons are in the bucket and I pitched a vial of WL English Cider Yeast. Here is to another year....

-Todd

I Love the label. I might have to copy and steal that one and label a few of mine!

Thanks. I am hoping this batch is even better because of the cider we used. It was bubbling this morning.
