so after spending years brewing in the 80's and 90's and a little about 7/8 yrs ago I decided it was time to brew again!
Have a buddy of mine get into ciders so I did a little research and dusted off the the brew pot and Carboy.
I really was just interested in getting something rolling so don't murder me with all the Papazian Proverbs
here she goes:
10 apples I picked in NE last visit ( live in denver) mashed in the Ninja
tossed in the propane kettle w/
2 cups organic sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup malt dextrose
1/2 gallon Britta H2o
1/4 tspoon of Pumpkin, Allspice and Nutmeg
light boil for 30 min.........
Then lowered heat & added 4 gal of Sprouts pure apple juice
stirred and heated for 45 min to 100F
finished with Australian Galaxy aroma hops
cooled to 75 and pitched wyeast liquid mead, cider and ale yeast .
($7.95) pricey but the brew guy said it was Great.
Fermentation noticed at approx 15 hrs. Not sure of what I/m looking for in a fermentation as i'v always done full grain. I have a good burp a little faster than every second and have a nice swirling going on in the 6 gallon CB.
Any thoughts ? Comments ? Even if they will Make Charlie Proud
Thanks! Stoked I'm back at it!!!!!!!
