I calculated my recipe mostly based upon my bottling capacity. I have enough plastic soda bottles to hold about 17 litres of brew. I rounded this up to an even 20 with some extra apple juice and some additional water to dissolve the sugar and tea.
|Preparation and ingredients|
I brewed the tea, mixed the sugar in hot water, poured the cider (all eleven jugs of it!) into the fermenter, added the sugar water, tea, and raisins to the mix, aerated the whole mix, added the yeast, and sealed up the fermenter bucket. Easy as that.
|What a mess!|
