New Cider Follies II:first rack and YUM

So it's been ten days and we racked the must today, straining out the cranberries and dead yeast and adding two cups of brown sugar before returning to the fermentation bucket.
Apple juice and cranberries, fermenting.  What's not to like?
Of course, in the process of straining it off we had to try some, right?

Pretty, no?
What great color!
We were flatly blown away.  The Scrumpy is tart and sweet, with a wonderful complexity, and just a hint of secondary fermentation.  Hell, we could drink it right now.  I can only imagine what it'll be like in a week or so after secondary fermentation.

These cider projects are really fun.  Recommend them highly for long, chilly winters.

More stuff over at Life, Art, Water.  Stay tuned.  Stay Warm
