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?
|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.
