    Here is a hydo sample of my blueberry apple cider. Very dry and just a hint of apple. I'll back sweeten it. It is at 1.000 right now. 20210912_184305.jpg

    Yeah but not very tasty yet. I've got a remedy for that though.

    Here's the latest: I back sweetened "pinky" with a can of frozen apple juice and put in a keg. Here's where it gets crazy. I found some guava nectar and more apple juice and poured it all on the yeast cake from "pinky's" batch. "It's alive......It's alive" I'll keep you posted on this latest experiment.
