Secondary cider

By popular demand, I bring you a very boring picture of the cider in secondary.  Unfortunately, I did not think of taking a picture of the hydrometer bobbing at 1.004.  Oh well, this is what you get.

You can see the barleywine's carboy behind it.

So there it is.  It’s not fermenting any more, but it is likely conditioning nicely.  It does have a strange green colour, but I don’t think that’s anything to worry about.

It should be very good by the first week of February or so… and the barleywine should be perfect by March.

BTW, in the picture you can also see boxes of cookie cutters that someone is going to want to pick up soon… 🙂


About danmalleck

Medical historian and jack-of-all-trades curmudgeon. I tend to ramble about politics, social incivility, and our self-centred culture more interested in buying the next cool ringtone or LED TV than actively engaging in the sorts of discussions and issues that matter. The more opportunity we have to buy more stuff, the less concern there is, it seems, in politics, social justice and let's face it, basic human decency, unless those things actually can save us money or get us more things to show how awesome we are through displaying our material wealth. And I like to brew beer, make cheese, and put food in jars.
