I got a few hours to potter in my bike shed and cider shack this afternoon. On my first press I had a demi john's worth of dessert pear juice that got fermented. I bottled these this evening. Just under 9 full 500ml bottles. I wasn't too careful with the syphon and actually stirred up a bit of what little lees were on the bottom of the DJ (in the hope that a bit of yeast will end up in each bottle to help carbonation). Each 500ml bottle was primed with 1/2 tsp of caster sugar. The 9th bottle wasn't full enough to cap so it's getting sipped right now. Really nice. A very slight tartness and very quaffable. High hopes for this one. My last apple picking day tomorrow. Got my sights on a couple of orchards with some real cider apples.
