C01: Hard Apple Cider Monday, October 14, 2013, 12:41 PM
I started a "brew" of hard cider. I used Whole Foods 365 Brand cider and Old Orchard Juice Concentrate. The general idea is from HowToMakeHardCider.com.
Here are my notes:
That was all there was to it. It probably took about 30 minutes! I do not know about this yeast but it is what the shoprecommended. I haven't decided about back sweetening and what else I want to do.
I decided for the sake of simplicity, I wouldn't backsweeten and I'd just bottle as is. I put it in the fridge 3 days earlier to cold crash. I had taken off the airlock and put sanitized foil over the bung so it would fit.
Here are my bottle notes:
Bottling went well. I cleanly bottled 10 bottles with some left to drink. It tasted very good. Very clean and dry. It reminded me of a very lightly carbonated and very unsweetened version of that alcohol apple cider. It also had a kind-of champagne smell to it. I do not think it needed any sweetener! I'm very excited to try it and I think I will buy more jugs of juice and do it again.
This is batch C01.
