This afternoon, as I was relaxing I started looking at my cider, it had stopped bubbling a while back, so I siphoned off the liquid (one demijohn still had a lot of frothy pulp floating on top - the other had none.

As I siphoned off into jugs, I put the result through coffee filters into a spare demijohn, this takes quite a  time to filter through. The second demijohn being clearer 2 jugs had very little sediment, so these have been bottled with some sugar to put a bit of sparkle and fizz into the mix. further bottles were filled with the filtered cider, the rest is either filtering or waiting to be filtered, now to see if the bottles can take the pressure (my ginger beer was known for exploding bottles)

I just had a small (very small) glass of some that was left over from bottling up and phew, it certainly has a kick, probably could have done with a little sweetening. but I think drinking one bottle of it will have an effect.

Whew, thats nice stuff, I opened one of my bottles this evening, and I have a very nice (strong) lightly sparkling cider, one bottle at a time will be plenty, its only been bottled for 4 weeks, so I will be leaving the rest to mature (I just had to give it a try though) I will certainly be making more next year, maybe a whole tree worth.

Well I recovered, up as usual this morning, that cider was lethal stuff, one pint and I couldnt walk straight - so went to bed.

I have exactly the same problem with Bombay Sapphire gin. One bottle and it's all I can do to drive the two hour trip to the boat.
