Resurrecting this one from the dead. I've got just over 5kg of comice pears to juice. Planning on a pear cider.
I've made a couple of ciders before and have added tannins by soaking two tea bags in a cup of boiling water, then cooling and added no to the juiced liquid.
Should I use the same amount of tea-bags for pear cider?
The plan is to blend it with my two demijohns of cider next Spring as pears have some unfermentable sugars, so will hopefully add a little sweetness. I'm still expecting to backsweeten mind, but that's a long way off.
2016: 330L brewed (72 gallons, over 8 firkins)
2017: 105L brewed (need to update this figure)
Drinking: Landlord clone
Conditioning: ciders from 2016, hedgerow barrolo, 1914 Courage RIS (10%).
