Default Angry Brewing

Well, after losing my entire first batch (it was only a mr beer batch, so it may not seem like a big loss to you guys, but it is to me) I have done some angry brewing.
The results may be interesting.
This month, and next month are badbadbad for my family money wise, so I couldn't buy any replacement ingredients.
So I took a gallon of unpasteurized apple juice, an old can of frozen grape juice, a baggie of mr beer booster, and the trub from my ****ed up batch and tossed it all in to my Mr Beer keg with water to make up the volume.

Cross your fingers for me. In my experience things like this turn out to be the worst crap ever, or the best cider on earth, never able to be replicated. I'm hoping for the latter.

Nice save! I also am really new at this, and although I did the Mr Beer thing and yeah I drank those beers even though I complained about how they weren't as good as award winning commercial craft brews.... But my point is, those hard lessons will never be forgotten, so they are valuable things. I actually wrote down all the stupid errors I have done (I have also spilled a copious amount of beer from not closing the tap, and pretty much every single typical error in the newbie book) and I berated myself for all of them. But they are just things we have to go through to get better at it... It's a craft Good luck with the cider.

Thanks for the support. You really never do know until you try. I mean, what's the worst that can happen? It's **** so I've got no cider or beer? That's exactly where I am now, so it seem to me to be a no lose gamble.

Although, if I'd been less pissed, I'd have washed my yeast and built up a bigger colony to pitch, and I'd have sanitized. I probably really should have sanitized.

Sounds awesome, like a grape-apple cider. Now watch, it'll be the best thing you ever make and you'll never be able to reproduce it. If the booster makes it a little hard to drink (har har!) let it sit a little longer to mellow out.

What's a tea cozy? I'd try one on but I wouldn't know I should right now.

You're going to get a quite dry cider from the ingredients you describe. If left in the bottle long enough it will taste kinda like a Chardonnay with apple over-tones. That's not a bad thing in any way as long as you should know what to expect.

A tea cozy is a quilted or knitted (or crochet) cover for a tea pot. It helps keep the tea sitting in the pot warm while you drink what you have in your cup. It often looks a lot like a hat, and some cozies get downright outrageous. I've seen crowns, flower baskets, elephants, pouf balls, and all sorts of wild cozies.
Here's a basic one.

Heh, that begs a question I won't ask.

Good luck with the cider experiment, I recommend a good 2 months at least to condition.

Thanks! Also, since this is cider and all...I can use the bucket that I got from the doughnut shop that used to hold apple filling. I never was able to get all the apple smell out.
