I dropped my jugs off to be filled today...local mill is pressing tomorrow. I'm getting 35 gallons. I made 25 gal. last year and wasn't nearly enough. I have 2-15 gal drums and a 5 gal pail.
I am going to primary 1 drum with 1 lb sugar / gallon
The other drum will get 1 lb honey / gallon
The pail will be primaried as straight cider with no added sugar.
Once I rack to carboys I plan several different recipes,
* 5 gal with atomic fireballs
* 5 gal mulled cider spices
* 5 gal vanilla and cinnamon
* 5 gal rasberry
Any other good ideas out there?
Once finished I will probably keg 15 gal. I'm looking into purchasing wine bags/boxes for most of the rest as I really don't want to bottle 20 gallons. I'm having trouble sourcing the bags, would appreciate it if anybody has any leads.
Reality is an illusion that occurs due to the lack of alcohol.
Give a man a beer, he'll drink for the day.Teach a man to brew, he'll be drunk the rest of his life.
I have 8 carboys, 8 cornies, 5-1 gal jugs, 200 wine bottles, 10 cases of beer bottles and a nice assortment of flip tops....My goal is to keep them at least 50% occupied
