    Can you expand on that? I'm curious about making cider and if it can be made from leftovers then I will give it a crack

    For sure.
    Can't be simpler...
    I syphon the beer to a bottling bucket and pour apple juice on the left over yeast/hop in the fermentation bucket.
    Sometimes I add some sugar.
    Leave it to stand for 2 weeks or so and then bottle
    Just make sure you check the label on the apple juice. So far, I have found that the stuff from the cooling doesn't work well (because of preservatives) but the packs that are on the shelves are fine (they have vitamin C as preservative (ascorbine acid) )

    I have even had success with apple juice, sugar and instant dry yeast (baker's yeast) when the temperatures got up to 35+ oC.
    (that wasn't on trub though)

    Got rid of a bunch of it yesterday at our annual Oktoberfest party.
