Got a pear cider on

Postby Crastney » Sun Aug 09, 2015 00:25

First brew on in ages, got some free pears from next doors tree, a few added apples, a litre of basics AJ, some pineapple juice from a tin, some saved yeast from a previous red wine, stored in the fridge, a teaspoon of tronozymol and away we go.

2.6 kg of pears, not a huge amount of juice only about half a gallon, so might need to top up with something.

And then I got another bag of wind falls, so I've chopped them into quartets, took out the maggots, rot, mould stalks etc, and put in freezer bags in the freezer. They'll juice better when defrosted. I need to clean and sterilise my small grape press now.
