Default My first cider, tasted it today

Here is my brew schedule

Hard Apple Cider 2 Gallons - Made January 22 2013 - Gravity 1074, January 31 2013 Gravity 1000

I took a gravity test today, it was at 1.000

So according to the calculator that puts it at 9.71%

Drank what was in the hyrdrometer jar, and it definitely had a nice kick, even warmed up my nose a bit.

I'm thinking about filling 4 1L pet bottles, putting them in the fridge. Then putting putting 2 tsp corn sugar in 4 more 1L pet bottles, and storing them away for a bit.

If this turns out really well, then I'm definity making a 5 gallon batch

I ended up sterilizing a bunch of bottles. Put 2 tsps of corn sugar, in 4 1 L bottles, filled them up, put them in the dark closet. Then filled a wine bottle with a screw cap, and a empty V8 Bottle, and put those in the fridge. I'll give the one in the fridge a taste test tomorrow night and see how it is.
