That Tad Guy's Unfinished Basement Cider

Sounds delicious and refreshing, right?

Well, a friend of a friend brews his own beer and recommended that I try brewing cider first. So that's what I'm trying to do in my basement. And, after a quick internet search, I already found a few guys who have done the heavy lifting for me:

The only two changes to their recipe that I'm making are that I'm using a different yeast, which I purchased at Worm's Way, and added vodka to the valve instead of water, for increased sterility.

Otherwise, things are already bubbling up. So in a few weeks I'll either have crisp delicious cider or a stomach ache and a hangover. And if it works, I might just have a juicer purchase in my future.

Get ready. Get excited. Get thirsty.
