Shame there is no update, I would of liked to have known how the Cider turned out. I still have plenty of Old Rosie Cider yeast that I cultivated in the fridge if anyone wants any for this year, let me know.

I'd love to try some of that yeast. The batches I did in Nov/Dec used Saf-04, Saf-05 and two 'wild' fermented ones where I left them for a few days to let the yeast kick in from the skins.

2016: 330L brewed (72 gallons, over 8 firkins)
2017: 65L brewed
Drinking: 70 Shilling (3.5%)
Conditioning: choc-coffee oatmeal wheat stout, various ciders, cherry 'brett' brown ale, imperial Pilsner.
Fermenting: Bock (6.5%)

Hi Guys all my times gone into germinating chilli seeds and getting plants ready for the season, the true cider apple trees have all settled well over winter and a couple are getting new buds .
The cider i brewed from the apple orchard is still ageing nicely and none will be opened until the end of summer , all the bottles have cleared nicely and look fantastic but im not going to be tempted.
A couple of trial bottles will go to John ( buster ) as he helped me on my way with some old rosie yeast starter .

Avoid hangovers stay drunk ! :drunk:

Thats great news, I am glad the cider is maturing and all has gone well. Good luck with the new orchard and best wishes for this year. :hat:
