Cider update.


Recommended Posts


I wrote 2 weeks ago concerning my cider. Short summary; Mixed up all ingredients to find no yeast in the box. Suppliers sent it through but it took 4 days. By this time the cider had started to ferment without the yeast. When I added yeast it went mad like putting something in an acid bath. Fermented violently for 2 days then stopped. Mixture had a very acidy smell. It was suggested on this forum that it was infected (which I suspected myself).I have left it in the fermenter and went away over last weekend and came back to find it happily fermenting away again but the acidy smell had disappeared. Any ideas anyone? is it worth keeping, bottling???

All suggestions and help gratefully accepted.
