  • I've been Home Brewing since 2004 thanks to a friend in Vermont, and I didn't drink beer until I turned 23 when a friend introduced me to good beer. Favorite beer - Switchback Ale Favorite braggot - Magic Hat Champagne cask aged braggot - I drank it on a tour of the brewery, it never made it to bottles because the abv was too high. Magic hat released a braggot the next fall, but it was boring, ever since then I've been trying to come up with a good braggot recipe.

    you posted this a couple weeks ago but I'll chime in.. I actually make cider with whatever
    apple juice Aldi sells. I think it's natures nectar, it's 100% juice, it has vitamin C added.

    acceptable pressure; Maybe check it on day 3 by pouring a pint, and then every day after that;
