Not bad at all!
Just tasted the dregs on primary. Pretty good. Could be a touch more appley but I topped up with apple juice so maybe that'll help. I made it with whatever yeast came with my framboise brewferm kit. It fermented quick. I'm carbonating then ageing. I dont care if cloudy. This apple juice not filtered.
Set this up per recipe. This is my first cider and I'm wondering if you guys think it is actually going yet or not - its been in the carboy 24 hours + and isn't bubbling the way I was expecting. Photo:
Getting ready to make my next batch and this time I'm going to use malic acid and tannins from the brew store instead of teabags and a lime I just did a taste test/comparison of the juice with different concentrations and have settled on using 3/4oz per gallon. I haven't yet tested the tannins.
Thanks for the recipe. I started 5 gallons up. Actually followed the recipe! (well, I used Nottingham yeast rather than US05, as that is what I had). Have it in a swamp cooler trying to keep the temps in the mid to upper 60's.
