    ABOUT ME

  • Woodworking,snowboarding,hunting and Cider making
  • Max Montigny
  • Punk Rock
  • I always wanted to brew something when I would have the space. Finally built a Woodshop/Garage, so I figured it was time. By that time I had a new found interest in cider and I found the idea of building my own equipment appealing. So I decided on brewing cider ...for starters.

    So far I've made one 5 gal. batch of cider from apples picked at a local orchard. Currently ageing in bottles.

    Brewing now is a 3 gal. batch of Graham's English cider, a recipe found on this forum made from concentrate apple juice.
  • I hope in the future to perfect my cider and eventually try my hand at a Stout or a brown ale.
  • Nothing
  • Graham's English cider
  • Rude Apple Cider:
    A cider I have made from pressing Cortland, Empire and Spartan apples. Fermented with EC-1118 and no other additives

    No starter. I did rehydrate though but that might not of been enough. Good advice though, next
    time I'll try a starter.

    Last year I was a bit late in the season when I went apple picking. So I pretty much got the
    left overs. The juice was mostly Cortland, some Spartan and a bit of Empire. The cider ended
    good but not g...

    It's been pretty hot around here lately. I keep my carboys in the garage where it's cooler but
    I'm sure it's been over 65 F in there for at least the last month. My past experience with
    other yeasts w...

    A few months ago I started a 5 gallons batch using Costco brand "fresh pressed" apple juice.
    I've been experimenting with different yeasts before apple season. For this one I used
    Nottingham, which ca...

    Yah I see both sides of it. When I have a little more cash and some more time (maybe next
    summer), I might invest in building one. For now the plethora of local of local farmers should
    be good enough ...

    I have to agree with gregbathurst here, it is primarily a hobby and so you have to invest a
    little. And even if you don't consider cider making a hobby you'd like to pursue, a well made
    press and grin...

    Apple season is still several months away but I already can't wait to get the grind and press
    going for next summers cider.In the mean time I'm trying to locate good apples for cider
    making. Most of t...

    Thanks for all the tips guys!It's almost 2 weeks later now and I tried another bottle last
    night. It seemed better, you could taste a bit more of the apple tartness. It's not fantastic
    but better. So ...

    Yeah I've read good things about Nottingham and other ale yeasts for cider, after the fact. I
    figured that might of been it. Before bottling my SG was at about 1.002 ...pretty dry but I
    wouldn't of mi...
