    Cloudy scrumpy, happy days indeed.....well done, a mate has just unearthed a bottle of carrot wine from 1982.....he fears no beer and is a real character, loves his home brew....have enjoyed many a strange brew over the years wi him....Chilli beer was a bit weird tho....and when he found Turbo Yeast he went truly ballistic on the brewing front......

    Tonight, after sitting here quietly doing it's thing since November 2015, I took this
    Name:  S3410011.jpg

    And put it into these
    Name:  S3410012.jpg
Views: 136
Size:  811.2 KB

    Will put them away and forget about them until spring

    Then the tasting will begin in earnest.

    I also refilled the carboys and will leave them now until May or June, then into bottles and forget until this time next year.

    I have 12 bottles left from February 2015 so I will most likely run out before this lots ready, but you get that with the big jobs.

    Cheers

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone

    @kotuku

    Give it a go mate.

    You never know your luck

    Set up costs are minimal, less than $40 for your first 15l ferment.

    Ferment times are quite long, the longer you leave it the better the result.

    Start one now and it will be ready to drink next summer.

    Cheers

    @P38. You have the patience of a saint. Ours is luck to last 3 months in the bottle.

    Just finished bottling the latest batch of Apple Cider.

    This lot has been quietly doing its thing in the fermenter since October last year.

    Will leave it sit in the bottle now until Autum next year...... Or until I run out of last years batches whichever happens first.

    @Rushy

    You need to brush up on your history mate.

    Apple Cider has been a popular leg opener with the ladies almost since time began.

    Just check out what Eve got up to after she plucked her first Apple from that tree in the Garden of Eden

    Cheers
