On our recent trip we ran into a great new taste to us called Hard Apple Cider. This is really just normal everyday Apple Cider with sugar added then yeast. You leave it brew in your brewing buckets just as you would beer to create the alcohol content. On the way home from our trip I stopped and bought all the ingredients I needed.
Once home I pulled out the brewing gear and sterilized it in preparation for the brew.
My new Hard Apple Cider is now brewing away in my basement. After about 3 weeks I will let you know how it turns out. I may even do a video on the taste testing.
Today I spent the evening with my daughter. My wife was going out with her daughter to a concert; so I thought I would take my daughter to a movie and dinner.
We first went to see Monster University. I know this is geared more to kids, but we are all kids at heart. This is a real gem of a movie a real Pixar treat.
After the movie we went out to eat at Quaker Steak and Lube. It was wing night but we both know we could not eat enough wings to make that worth while. We both ordered regular orders, and both had the Louisiana Lickers. I thought they were a little spicy; but my daughter loves hot things so she thought they were great.
I did have to have a beer with dinner. I thought it was a sign of the times when my daughter said drink dad I can drive home. Funny how as we get older we have some benefits that we never thought we would have.
It just would not be a post by me without a picture. This is a pic of my beer.
This is from the summer harvest pack. It is a lighter beer with a smooth taste.
This is a brew that has only been sitting in the bottle for a week now. I thought I would try a bottle, chilled it out for the day and woooooo what a smooth tasting beer. The color and clarity is also already great.
