    You are a sucker for punishment Pete. How many hangovers in those bottles?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    None

    For me that is .... I don't drink cider I just like making it.

    My friends drink it, They can enjoy the hangovers.

    Starting SG is 1.050 so this lot will brew out to about 6% alcohol.

    Cheers

    Pretty simple process Phillipgr.

    Lots of YouTube vids too.

    Or follow this thread Nashi Pear Cider

    I started with one and a half 20l buckets filled with wind fall apples from my Fuji and Granny Smith Trees.

    Cut them into pieces and run them through my wife's kitchen juicer and ended up with just over two gallons of juice, although you'd probably get a better yield from a press.

    Put the juice into the fermenters, add yeast and an air lock and leave until fermentation has almost stopped.

    Rack it off into clean fermenters and leave it under air locks for secondary fermentation.

    Once the secondary fermentation has stopped , leave it a month or two longer then bottle.

    Bottle as is, if you want still cider or add 1/8 cup of sugar per gallon just before bottling for sparkling cider.

    Leave in bottles for a couple of months then drink.

    Starting SG was 1.050 so I'm expecting this cider to ferment out at around 6% alcohol.

    Seems like a good use of the apples to me.

    Cheers
    Pete

    After six weeks fermentation and a second racking off this is the product to date.

    Specific gravity has reached 1.000 so I expect the alcohol content to be around 6-7%

    I will rack it off one more time and leave it another month or so hopefully for some Malolactic Fermentation to occur and for the cider to clear a little more before bottling.

    It tastes ok at this stage too so will hopefully be better after maturing some more.

    Cheers
    Pete

    Those nashi's are tasty when you dehydrate them.

    Tried something a little different yesterday and made up a batch of Apple Cider using Fresh Up Apple Juice.

    Will be good to compare it with the batch of cider I made from my own apples.



    Will let you know how it all turns out in a couple of months or so.

    Cheers
    Pete
