Thirsty Thursday (on Friday) – Racking the Cider

Two weeks ago, I started a hard cider using locally grown apples.

It’s been happily bubbling away in the dining room these past two weeks. It was time, yesterday, to rack it into a smaller carboy.

Now it’s all moved. Hopefully, some of the cloudiness will settle out. If not, that’s fine. As soon as I’m certain it’s finished fermenting, I’ll bottle it.
