I am quite fond of cider. I am also quite fond of wine too. Steve is fond of beer and wine. But we are trying to economise which means not buying so much wine. So the home brew kit has had a resurgence. Steve busied himself some months ago brewing batches of different varieties of beer... there's lager, stout, Corona, wheat beer, English Bitter and pilsner (!!). There are plastic crates galore stacked in the shed with bottles of this wide variety of the amber liquid. And they are rather good according to Steve.
But where does this leave me, girl that does not like beer? Luckily Steve was given a cider for brewing for Xmas and finally he has concocted it. See this container here, inside is 18 litres of apple cider, yeehar!
It has been bubbling away for about 5 days now, making all sorts of bizarre noises. One night I woke up and thought I heard the dog about to chuck, but no, twas just the cider burping away :-) It bubbles through this dohicky thing on top and when it stops bubbling then it's time to bottle it. Then it's a minimum 2 week wait til tasting time. It's gonna be a long 2 weeks.
