Ok so finings went in on Tuesday night and it's still a bit on the hazy side

Will probably repeat Kwik Clear treatment tomorrow if still not crystal

Second lot of finings went in a week ago and it's clearing super slowly, maybe 1/5 from the top so far, but moving down gradually....

Ok so it seemed crystal when I bottled it but chills to a very hazy thing

Taste... hmm if the missus didn't think it was OK 'but with a slightly odd taste' I would probably consider jettisoning it.

I think I maybe overdid the spicing a little, although it seemed reasonable at the time, and in line with what I've used in turbo ciders before.

Juice content at 16L for 23 finished product is more than I'll usually use (it's usually 50/50 juice to water), so it could also be that.

One not to make again !

Mrs will drink it though so all is not lost
