2012 – Batch 1

First batch of the 2012 production of Woodley Sider, many thanks to Stuart Marlow for his assistance – would have taken me 3 times as long without his help!

Decided to jump straight into the experimental cider making, of the 5 gallons pressed, 1 will be fermenting with chopped raisins (god knows how that’ll turn out), 1 with 250g of Light Muscovado sugar dissolved (potential %age of 7.5% abv), and 3 left as is, but may get some different ‘treatment’ during secondary fermentation.
