Opened up the FV today and got this result:

OG 1.074
FG 1.000
ABV 9.7%

I then stirred in the Wilco Stabiliser to kill off the yeast (ti stop further fermentation) and at the moment it is sitting on the worktop in the garage at a bracing 6 degrees!

I'm hoping that the cider will clear in a couple of days and then I intend to syphon it off into a Wilco Keg, adjust the sweetness, flavour and ABV and then carbonate it with CO2 capsules.

I drank the sample I took to get the FG and it is very dry; so it will take a fair amount of straight AJ to bring it up to a sweeter taste; and I'm not sure that I will need any lemon juice to make it "tart".

I'll keep you posted on final results.

Living more in hope than expectation; and seldom disappointed.
