I was in the homebrew shop and i overheard the owner talking to a bloke about his first time brew of cider. I took his advice and brewed my second lot in the fermenter and i racked it into another fermenter then into the demijohn. The shop owner said to his customer that you dont need to be as sterile with your cider as you do with your beer so whilst i washed everything out i didnt steralise everything. Anyway bottled the last lot into lidl spring water bottles today and it actually tastes nice!!!!! I made a lot of mistakes for my first batch but it looks like its going to be ok. Next year i will be more organised. I got two buckets of crab apples making 9 x 1.5 ltr bottles.
On the rack: Ribena, mixed juice, tea wine, Blackberry. peach, carrot, blackberry and raisin, pear.
Fermenting: Apple cider and black stout/raisin wine
Waiting in the barrel. Coopers Irish Stout.
Drunk: Geordie Yorkshire Bitter. Tom Caxtons Best Bitter, BlackCherry Youngs wine kit
