I am exploring this cheaty way of making fizzy cider using Pat Mack’s Home Brewing Caps (I just love the sound of that and hope that it is really his or her name). You mix the ingredients in the picture and add a pinch of yeast. In this case I had the dregs of the last batch in the bottom of the bottle so just mixed it all together and left it in a warm part of the house.
My hope is to make a light cider that I can share with the kids without feeling guilty. A strong memory of mine is my grandfather (who didn’t drink) serving cider with meals because it had been bought by my grandmother and was “non-alcoholic”.
