My First Brew (Cider) Was a Failure AND a Success?
« on: March 10, 2019, 11:08:53 AM »
I finally brewed something! A hard apple cider.

It was a failure; It was a success. How can that make sense? Here's a video of tasting day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBnejp7Raf8

nice video.
I use 1 liter seltzer bottles to put cider in. I use 5oz of sugar to 3/4C water boiled.
add to the bottling bucket. if i let it sit for a month it sometimes the yeast die and i wont get any carbonation. but i make my ciders in the 10-12% ABV range. once in awhile i will put it in a keg and add 2 cans of frozen concentrate to it to sweeten it up and carbonate it.
be sure to post your mead videos here.
