It goes something like this;
1) Realise apples on friend's tree are ready to pick
2) Pick said apples and be bothered by neighbour's cat for a while. Play baseball with apples and large pole.
3) Cut out bruising, cores and mould, blend and strain apple junk through muslin bag into bucket.
4) Add campden tablets to prevent oxidization
5) Add to demi-john with Montrachet Wine Yeast and Glucose
6) Ferment and age for 6 months, then bottle and prime for a sparkling wine.
Took us about 1.5 hours to make almost a gallon, which was quite a bloody lot of apples. Oh well...I'm undecided on sugar quantities yet as the home brew shop isn't open until tuesday, but I'll grab some then and bring it up to 1.070 - 1.080.
Apple variety is unknown, so no need for Tannin/Acid Blend etc as I have no idea what to add! Oh well. I suppose this is single variety and they seem to be something along the lines of Pink Lady apples - soft and powdery, a little sharp, pink and light green in colour.
Updates to come!
