229 + another 7 this morning = 236.

Standard house cider. Quality juice from KS, tannins from chestnut, malic acid, nutes and SO-4.

5 gallons of simple cider. Store bought juice, fermented with Brown Ale primary yeast cake and carbonated with table sugar. Pretty darn good and cheap!!

5 + 236 = 241

damn, i'm adding to my own tally....lol

well for this batch i boiled a quart of the apple juice with 3 large spoons full of mulling spices....dumped all it in the fermenter i just kegged of the batch before last.

so....drum roll! :)

275+10=285 (and yes, for some reason i have the hefty garbage bag theme playing in my head)

three in a row! i have to wonder why i have to scroll so far down to find this, if i'm the only one fermenting apple juice...?

going to have to add my 4lb's sugar later, forgot to tell instacart to get it for me....(yes, i'm being lazy, so i have my juice delivered...easiest brew days i've been having in a long time! :))

285+10=295

I've done 4 in the last month (just started brewing again):
1 gal plain apple Belle Saison
1 gal blueberry/pom Belle Saison
2 gal plain apple pitched on my Munich Classic trub

First 2 two are carbing, last 2 are about to be bottled.

295+4= 299

I've been itching to brew and have 6 gal of aj just waiting for me to make cider. But too many other projects and priorities right now. So, can't post futures unless I've pitched yeast.

it only takes a few seconds to dump it in a bucket! unlike hours to brew....6 gals can't take longer then 10 gals that i poured into my fermenter....i didn't even add yeast, just on top of the yeast cake from the last batch! lol, and to keep this on topic, and make it an even number...that yeast cake had to have about a gal still on it...sooo...

299+1=300 (apparently we work in small numbers here in the cider forum, so every little bit helps! lol)

So I'm trying my blueberry cider again this time using a homemade blueberry/BlackBerry syrup I made. Going to experiment with the backsweeten with some Knudsen blueberry juice and maple syrup mixture
300 + 3 = 303

2 gl with baker's yeast, just for fun.
6 gl Premier Blanc and EC-1118
No added sugar yet. 1 step at a time for the newbie's experiment. All in an ice cooler to keep a 45 / 55 degree temp. It will be some time before it's ready.
That's a total of 8 gl, for those who have a math deficiency.
348 + 8 = 356

just dumped 10 gals apple juice in a bucket, came here to brag...and got the tip from @RPh_Guy to try it with oak, so added about 4 oz's light toast oak chips to the fermenter....(i hope the beer boys don't miss me! been being lazy recently on my brewing :))

For future reference, does this thread count cysers? or do I have to go over for the mead people for that?

New hobby for the wife and I... married 18 years but this is my first time in cider!

3 single gallons in at the moment, but have acquired our own cider press, so things are going to amp up this fall!

416+3=419
