Homebrew update

Bottled three gallons of apple cider last night.  I had used an English Cider yeast, and it came out quite a bit different than my last batch.  The Ragin' Mrs. compares it to a Riesling.  It's dry, and has a more complex flavor than just apple.  I used a raw apple cider to start, so it's not just apple-flavored sugar water.  I primed it and bottled it, set it in a nice dark spot and now I'm going to wait for two weeks before I crack one open and see how it finished.

Next weekend, the lavender mead and Rodamel get bottled.  The Mrs. is already doing her happy dance.
