Is this a cider? Sounds like a nasty pseudo-wine/hooch to me. Good luck with that. Maybe you can give it to your coworker.

At least he won't ask for more.

Just because it's not something you would like doesn't mean it won't be good. The title of the thread is "trying something different today". Stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something that may not sound appealing at first, is probly how brewing got going in the first place! Maybe you might surprise yourself if you "tried something different" every once in a while.....

Sounds like you don't know what cider is.

Wow thanks for the support guys. And BTW it smells great I'm going to give it a few more days and take a reading, see where it's at. It's bubbling every 2 minutes or so now. Not done yet!

Fair enough. Perhaps my good natured ribbing of this experiment came off in poor taste; jest doesn't translate into emoticons so well, you know. Im happy hareebrownbeest is trying this and wish him luck, because he'll need it for this to be drinkable I might be wrong, and I'll trust his judgement And admit so if he says it's good.

Had a taste yet, hareebrownbeest?

As for classifying this as definitively not a cider, I'll stick to my guns. We can hem and haw about whether something is a cyser, apple or pear wine or a cider, but I think fermented pineapple and grape juice definitely don't qualify, and i was simply agreeing with the thread author on HIS OWN determination it wasn't a cider. Wine, maybe, though I guess the final abv would help us narrow that down
