This chap's down to 0.990 so racked it last night and had a wee taste - pretty nice so far

Racked onto 5 crushed campdens and added 2.5tsp youngs wine stopper, and gave it a bit of a mix. Will degas over the next couple of days with drill and wine whip, the add Kwik clear finings.

Darn... guess who needs to go to the HB shop at the weekend for finings... doh

Not long as it turns out, was perfectly clear a couple of days after finings went in

Bottled up tonight, and the stash under the stairs is looking healthy (or unhealthy)

Wouldn't hesitate to follow one of your recipes again. We just bottled about 40 pints of strawberry and lime turbo cider last night, came out about 5%. The batch before we added more sugar too, came out at 8%, but it was a bit too strong.

I'll divide the recipe down, and we'll do a demijohns-worth, so we can give it a try, as we have a spare demijohn at the moment.
