Hey all,

I made a batch of cider a few months ago. Bottled for 1 month and a half.

Over that time it started carbonating. I actually thought it tasted better in the first two weeks of bottling.

Now its not tasting quite the same, or maybe the last two bottles of cider I tried were from the bottom of the secondary and might have had more off flavors....

Is there a peak you can measure when the cider is at its best?

The only way I can describe the taste is its a little bit like musty apples.
But is still tasty and warms you up on a cold day like whiskey, it must be around 10%.
Growler: Cran-Lemonwein
Primary: Ghetto Cider (Shur-Fine)
Primary: Chocolate Oatmeal Stout
Primary: Welches Grape Juice
Secondary: Pail Ale (American)
Secondary: Chocolate Oatmeal Stout
Bottled: Ghetto Cider (Roundys)
