New Cider Follies
Well, hey, the last batch turned out so very well that we're doing some more experimenting with our hard Ciders.
New batch, Cranberry Cider
So the new batch consists of apple juice, 24 oz of fresh cranberries (stewed for a bit until they pop), brown sugar, some raisins, and yeast. We'll rack it off the lees in about a week and add more sugar, then bottle a week after that and age......yeah, right, we'll drink it.
