Think we've 26 gallons on the go this year. First batch should be almost ready.

Hmm tried a couple of mine and it tastes more like a wine!
Doesnt particularly taste or smell strongly of apples/cider but its fizzy and a bit rough on the palate.
the internet says its over fermented - anybody know?
I didnt check the specific gravity because I forgot at the start of fermentation
If you cant beat 'em then at least bugger 'em about a bit. :innocent:

Quite a surprise yesterday, I opened one of the 2ltr bottles of Novembers Cider ,wasn't expecting much even thought it may have spoilt, but no it seems to kept very well. I intended it as a low abv quaffing drink, and thats how I drank it yesterday.
Today I have most of my cognitive functions back .
Sadly the apples I stored have not kept well over 50% have rotted  ???
