Hey all,I just popped a year and a half old cider that turned out pretty good and wanted to share. I bought the cider from a local farm that fresh squeezes the juice and I added some Oregon puree. Very tart and delicious! Posted Image

No, but it's just barely carbonated. You can see some of the bubbles toward the top of the glass. I never have gotten the bottle conditioning right for cider. It always seems that you need more sugar to get a cider nice and carbonated.

I have success with around 4-4.5 volumes.

Good to know! I just started kegging, and I'm shooting for some higher volumes, though I haven't really measured it. All I know is that it needs more pressure!Cheers!

Yes sir! Turned out great, though I wish I had this cider in a keg instead of in bottles.

Sounds tasty.So just one can of puree and nothing else or can you shed any more light on your recipe?

That's it! I got some fresh squeezed cider from a local farm and threw in some yeast. I can't remember which one, but I want to say it was just a pack or two of Safale 05. after about 3-4 weeks, I tossed in a whole can of the puree and let it sit for a month or two, then I bottled it. The bottles have sat undisturbed for about a year.

Excellent, thanks.I've got a primary about to come open and this sounds like a good way to refill.
