Home Brew Cider

A couple of recipes I have plagiarised of others in a group I am in. These deal with the fruit ciders, they are essentially Turbo Ciders which simply means you pour your apple juice (55p per litre at Aldi) into your fermenting bin along with the yeast and a little yeast nutrient if you have some, the fruit juice is optional, I use a carboy that has a tap. always take an original gravity reading and after fermentation stops take a final reading, this will give you an indication of the strength of brew. I would at this point move it to a cooler room to settle, after a week or so I would bottle it directly from the tap on the carboy. You can either bottle it flat or carbonate it, my preference is lightly carbonated so I use 1/2 a teaspoon sugar per 500 ml bottle, leave it a few days in a warm room to carb then cold chill it for a week or so in the fridge, dont worry if you get any sediment in the bottle, it tends to stick at the bottom and wont harm you
I wont make mine as strong again so will add water and take the original gravity readings until I am sure I will achieve about 5%.
This is a dry cider, if you prefer sweeter you simply add a sweetex or similar pill at bottling.
It really is simple to make and actually takes no time, but be sure all your equipment is very clean and sterilised and then rinsed.

RASPBERRY CIDER
3.5L Apple juice from concentrate
400ml to 750ml lowicz Raspberry syrup
This is one of the easiest recipes, simple put your apple juice and the Lowicz directly into your FV and add the yeast and keep around 20-22c until fermentation is complete
Yeast

VIMTO CIDER - projected yield 5-6%
3.5L Apple juice from concentrate
1L boiled vimto
Yeast

If you want to boil the Vimto then bring it to a boil and reduce to a rolling simmer for 10 minutes, some feel this removes preservatives but there is no science to back this. Although people do report it does help fermentation getting going
Add 3.5L Apple juice into your FV (demijohn or 5L water bottle) add your Vimto and make sure the temperature is no higher than about 22C, At this point put your yeast on top. Some like to give it a little shake to mix the yeast and ingredients together. Try to keep your cider around 20 - 22c for about a week until fermentation has ended, you can test this with a Hydrometer. If the Hydrometer gives the same reading for 3 days in a row fermentation is completed.
Also take into account sugar free vimto will lower overall ABV but will give some sweetness to your finished product as the sweeteners used in it are non fermentable
Notes: All vimto cordial flavours can be used to make this recipe. All vimto cordials must be boiled for 10 mins before adding to the demijohn.

You can but not all apples make great cider so I am told and you can't make it in 5 minutes hence the Turbo name.

Re: Home Brew Cider

I find that when making cider there is more chance of it going off, due to the lower alcohol content than when we make wine.

Re: Home Brew Cider

This sounds interesting. Might have a go at that. I like cider. Our basement stays at around 55 degrees F all year round.

We have a pear tree. But in all the years we have been in this house, 41 now, we have never really had any decent pears from it. They drop all over the grass and also into next door. The idiot who planted it put it right on the boundary line so half of the tree is next door. As they are usually crap, this doesn't matter much. We had a neighbour years ago who used to take as many as we could give him. Even the rank and manky ones. He used to make wine with them regardless of condition.

I must say, the wine was not bad. I would like to know what happened to all the horrible stuff. He said that he didn't prepare them before except to cut them in half.
