Gone apple picking with the family this week. Hay ride, gonna get some pumpkins too.
Gonna grab four or five gallons of fresh pressed cider. I have three five gallon batches in the basement now.Haven t had any of those yet but I figure I will be bottling one that is just about three years old this season. Next year the next batch down there will be three years old, etc. If I keep it going we will have one nicely aged cider for every year.
Im thinking of trying a wild spontaneous fermentation with this batch. Anybody ever try that?
My first experience with hard cider was when I was about 11, we discovered a jug that had "turned" but my brother and I drankit anyway. It was also my first experience with intoxication. We drank a lot of it. I think I almost pooped my pants a little that night. I dont know, maybe I really did poop my pants and I "blacked" it out.
