Grape juice cider isn't carbing, might have dropped too much yeast. Will give it another couple of weeks before I try re-pitch. (I'm thinking if necessary Ill just drop 1 or two little pellets into each bottle and recap)
It tastes delicious though. Could do with a little less sweetness, which Im hoping the carbing will help with.
Caramel apple cider is awesome. Very pleased with how it turned out, and I think I'll make a full size batch towards the end of the year. Its definitely got a Christmas taste to me. I might go down on the cinnamon though, its every so slightly too much for me.
Started a new cider today. I was at a local farmers market and found some strawberry flavoured cranberries. Weird, I know. They smelled unbelievable though. Super strawberry from hell kind of smell. So of course, I threw them in the blender with some apple juice, mushed them up a bit and added them and a whole gallon of apple juice to a carboy with some pectic enzyme. 24 hours later, I strained what I had (leaving a little bit of the lees to help the flavour) and pitched half a packet of Nottingham ale yeast.
I grabbed a little taste before pitching and MAN did it taste good. SUPER good. The flavor from whatever the hell they put on those cranberries really came through. (OG at this point was 1.071
I'm planning on stopping it at 1.010 and adding a little more apple juice until the right sweetness and bottling it. Followed closely by pasteurizing it of course.
