Cider Update

November 13, 2009

Just finished racking my cider and of course tasting it. I was exceptionally careful in mixing the apple types (yeah right….it didn't quite work the way I thought it would) so the apple distribution has no effect.

Champagne yeast is the gold standard for cider….crisp dry..and the 1'st carboy was that
Carboy #2 Champagne yeast was a wee bit duller but better mouth feel.
Carboy #3 was the ale yeast and man that was good….good mouth feel and rounder and sweeter…this will be my new gold standard….if its ok later
#4 was champagne but great mouthfeel…had more air ( end of the lot) but tasted good
not clear but good
