Hard cider


#61

This is not great wine but I am pleased with it. More along the lines of a dry white grape wine. I didn’t have a hydrometer when I made the first batch but in my opinion it finished out around ten to twelve percent. I like the fact that you can pour it into a glass and swirl and get the smell of apples. It’s a little harder to find in the flavor kind of on the back end. I think it would benefit from a crab apple or other juice to give it a little more flavor, as suggested by others here. Honestly I’m pretty pleased I didn’t make vinegar

I have a three gallon batch of apple wine going for six weeks or so, I added some toasted white oak a few days ago , took a sample tonight, yum, starting to taste a carmel apple flavor.
