Well, the brewing saga of my beer and hard cider have come to a completion, as the finished products are the fridge. I have tasted them both, too. (Read up previous entries here and here.) Here’s what I think.
It’s dry. Really dry. I like it! It has a good cider taste and isn’t sweet. The cider has a good fizz and pop to it when you take off the cap. Yum!
Chestnut Brown Ale
This turned out really well, too, for a first try! It’s a tad watered down, and I think I over-carbonated it, which means I should have let it sit a little longer or reduced the sugar content at bottling. Now I know for next time.
I made alcoholic beverages! I enjoyed them both! I learned a lot! And it was delicious!
