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: 105L brewed (need to update this figure)
Drinking: Landlord clone
Conditioning: ciders from 2016, hedgerow barrolo, 1914 Courage RIS (10%).

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 .

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:

Arrived this morning, thank you so much. All 3 bottles are in the cooler and the Wife was really impressed with the Mango and Kiwi Chilli Jam. She wondered if you would PM me the recipe. If you want anymore Old Rosie yeast let me know as I have a fresh lot in the fridge. All the best Buster :hat:

Glad it got there safe and sound Buster, and hope it hits the pallet. I think the cider a perfect partner for scorching hot curry. Cools the tongue if I give her indoors the jam recipe you know I have to kill her he he he.
Will pm it you... There's just enough heat to the kiwi jam to tingle your lips, I put a teaspoon in porridge when it's really cold outside.
Appreciate your patience, and I, ll update the country orchard thread a lot more the end of the season, when it's time to " press "
Have fun don't get too drunk and take it easy.

Just a small update, just fermented a 23 litre brew buddy cider kit but with a twist, I added 3 pints of freshly picked elder flowers all forked off the stems and added in a fine mesh bag and left in the fermentation bucket for the full fermentation.
I let it go for 2weeks, measured end sg 1.002. Bottled and primed today and now stood in a warmish room for a few days.
Certainly the cleanest best smelling cider iv brewed so far.
Once it goes in a dark chilled room it will be left to condition for 12 - 18months.
Thanks for looking in.
