    Morning all!

    I have a fishing trip coming up early august and a few of the lads drink Cider.

    I'm thinking of surprising them with a nice big batch of toffee apple to help wash down the BBQ on a night time.

    I have done a fair few All grain homebrews so far but never ventured into cider.

    Can anyone DM me a recipe they've had success with over that timescale?

    Cheers!!

    Do you reckon it would be palatable after only 2months if I get it done this weekend fermented then bottled?

    I'm thinking of below to upscale it to a 19/20 litre batch

    19L 100% Organic Apple Juice
    1.250Kg Honey
    Water to top
    1 pack yeast of your choice. Popular choices are Montrachet, Champagne, Safale S-04 and Nottingham.
    4 14oz tin Pear Halves
    4tsp Malic Acid
    4tsp Yeast Nutrient
    4 Vanilla Pod or Vanilla Extract

    That's just off top of my head so christ knows if it's anywhere near accurate hahaha

    Possibly, your average turbo cider is supposedly fine to drink after only a couple of weeks in the bottle.

    I guess the one above can only get better with age but should be drinkable earlier.
