Had to chunk the smaller batch of apple-pear cider due to nasty floaties.
I’d backsweetened it in secondary with a sugar/mulling spice mix, but I used one that was already open and just dumped it in instead of boiling it first and letting it cool like I should have to kill off any grossness that might have slipped in.
Live and learn.
The little apple/pomegranate is still bubbling away, that’s gonna require quite a bit of sweetening after fermentation to overcome the tartness.
The large apple-pear batch is needing to be racked here in the next day or so. Tonight if I can get to it. Think I’ll start another batch with the pomegranate, but use a higher apple/pom ratio this time. Should keep the flavor but reduce the tartness a bit.
