Just thought I'd briefly introduce myself I've been attempting to brew cider* for nearly a year now, though only started taking it more seriously in the last month or so...and I thought it would be good to have somewhere to ask a few questions from time to time. I'm currently based in Lancaster for most of the year (term time), and Cheshire for the rest. I guess I'm mostly going to be making cider, though I've acquired a twenty year old (or thereabouts) tin of "geordie scottish export", and I found a few interesting wine recipes I'd like to try too. When I'm not drinking/brewing/thinking about doing either of the previous two I study physics. *I believe the term for what I've been doing is "turbo cider": supermarket apple juice, caster sugar and, sin of sins, baking yeast, in 2L lemonade bottles/5L water bottles. I've since acquired a 25L FV, demijohn and currently have an On The Rocks kit doing its stuff in there. Hoping to start shifting it into another large container in the next few days. I'm putting it off because a) it smells slightly sulphurous although this has reduced in the last few days, b) I have a cold and chest infection - I'm worried I'll end up adding dangerous bacteria to something I will be drinking if I start using my siphon. To add to this misery, my antibiotics mean I can't drink, even if I could taste properly.
