fruit cider comp question
« on: February 28, 2012, 09:09:47 AM »
I made a cider with wild berries and it picked up some brett character. Is brett acceptable in the fruit cider category, or would it do better in speciality cider ? Thanks

I think it would do better in specialty cider. Unless perhaps the brett is quite subtle and adds to overall fruit character somehow.

I love Brett in my cider.  I think you could enter it under the usual fruit cider category.  My very humble opinion.
