The Cider Thread


Recommended Posts

With the rise of ciders in the last ten years I suspect more and more people partake in drinking them, and probably have a favorite. I've been drinking hard ciders since the 80s, back when Strongbow and Hornsby's were the only ones you could find... IF you could find them. 

 

My absolute all-time favorite cider has to be ANVIL from Sonoma Cider, which shut down operations about a year ago after losing funding. Bummed... me... out. Recently I came upon the mother-load and bought the store out of all they had - Twelve 22oz bottles. Special occasion shit, for real.

I'm also a fan of Thistly Cross Whisky Cask

But my everyday cider Reverand Nat's Hard Apple

Have enjoyed for a long time.  When I started noticing them I think it was like Woodpecker and Woodchuck were more the available ones.  I still get some of the Woodchuck ones here & there.  A lot of local spots have started doing them around me, farms and orchards and such, so I've had a few of those recently.  I also like a good pear cider once in a while.

Used to serve the whiskey barrel one on cask when I worked in a pub. It was a bit too much for me but then again I hardly ever drink cider. We used to also sell a mango cider that was about 7% and tasted like a smoothie. Dangerous stuff

Didn't forget this thread.  Looking again I could see how cider lends itself to things like a whisky cask.  Recently went to a place with a considerable cider selection representing many states.  Went with two from this brand w/ this black cherry being my fav.

A local pub here in Portland makes their own black cherry cider that is awesome, and I’m not a fan of anything cherry flavored. 
 

Right now these two ciders have been sat-les in my fridge for the last month...

Don't come across many decent/traditional ciders in Aus, will have to keep an eye out for some.
I've been planning a few homebrew ciders for the Mrs, always take the easy way out and use decent store bought juice as a base.. 18ish litres of apple and or pear with a litre or 2 of fresh squeezed juice, some black currents or frozen berries or something for a bit of flavour then ferment out for 2 weeks with cider yeast. Fill the keg up, back sweeten with lactose if you like them sweet (I prefer them a bit dry) 20L/5Gal of easy cider ready to go

I mostly drink ciders now after discovering I'm a bit allergic to something in beers

this is good

this is also good but a lot dryer.

 

Most other ciders in Australia are yuck

somersby, strongbow etc.🤮

 

these give a rotten hangover sometimes but what are you gonna do.

Thought I picked up a pear cider, was mildly disapointed to find that in my coranvirus rush I grabbed this instead:

Not bad though, they added sour cherry and peppercorns.

 

Been thinking along the lines of what @aimerwas talking up there but for a first attempt was planning on doing a more high class prison style hooch.

Had this last night and it was really good. A little pricey for a four pack so I only got one to try... and now I have to go back and buy a whole four pack. Hate it when that happens.
