Anyway, the big batch of cider has finished fermenting and is in bottles. I got a great yield from the batch, and I am still collecting clean plastic soda bottles to help expand my bottling capacity. I had to bottle the last 4.5ish litres in my water jug (formerly fermenter) just to get everything out of the bucket. This isn't a bad problem to have, of course.
In another week or so, the bottles will be carbonated and ready to enjoy like delicious apple champange (shut up, Foodies! I know I can't call it Champagne, that's why I didn't capitalize it!)
Here was my yield from 20ish litres.
15 500mL bottles, 1 750ml bottle, 1 1000 mL (1L) bottle, 3 2L bottles, 4.5(ish) L in the water jug.
Nice haul for about 14 Euros, that will make about 40 pints of cider to enjoy before the next batch is ready. I hope we can make it until the next batch is ready...
[Edit] 17 December, 2013- About halfway through this batch. The flavor and carbonation are great for what we used. I am looking forward to using some real cider yeast (which is already in) for the next batch. Turbo yeast makes a pretty dry cider without the nice apple tartness I used to get with the champagne yeast back in Iowa. Still, no complaints here!
