This thread makes me think I should have an Apfelwein.

I have an applewine sitting in a keg and should be getting close to being done conditioning.  Dont have a lot of experience here but it fermented in a week and I've been told it take 4 to 6 weeks to condition.  Or at least when it clears out its done.  Added apple juice, 2lbs of brown sugar and a handful of raisins for flavor.

There was a bottle of Pomme Neige Iced Cider at a tasting and it was delish!  Could have drank the entire bottle myself. :cheers:

Are we referring to the ones that suggest you pour from 4ft out?  I've had one or 2 and they're delicious if those are the right ones. I'd check on rb with theCheeseMan

Not surprised, Andrew is big on ciders and meads.  He'll be in town next weekend, you busy?

Ah that's right, we'll be having an epic tasting thanks to Andrew, Jacob, and Conner coming back.  We've been collecting sours and other things.

There's a new cidery here named Argus that is making small batch stuff that is supposed to be awesome. Their first, Bandera Brut, is a sparkling cider made with mostly local apples and I hear it's great. Limited to only around 650 bottles and they're almost $20 a pop. I'll buy one some day.

That's like Dupont's (the cider, not the beer) price.

Apparently the stuff is just great. I've seen it anywhere from $16-20, but I haven't bought one yet.

Hmm, just saw this. :bag: Basque cider, there are a couple in town, Sarasola is my pick. Tart, clean, mild Brett funk. Here are my reviews:

Quote
Sarasola Sagardoa

Poured as instructed on the label, at a height of 3 feet (over a sink). Slightly hazed pastel gold, hazy moonstone clarity. A swarm of tiny bubbles rise through the liquid, feeding into a cluster of larger bubbles on the surface. The loose foam subsides into a string of pearls at the edges. Musty gauze aroma, slightly acetic, white wine vinegar, faintly sweet and leafy orchard apples. Ethereal. Light juicy feel, bursting with puckering apple tartness. Lingering peaty notes, possibly from the wild yeast. Some bretty horsehair and chardonnay notes. Good stuff, will seek this out again.

Quote
Isastegi Sagardo Naturala

Picked this up based on an article on lambicandwildale.com that billed it as "a drink that lambic drinkers might enjoy". Poured at a height of 6", only a small pour into the glass at a time (recommended traditional method for Basque cider). First pour was bright gold, the last was pastel yellow, murky with a bit of sediment. A few juice-like bubbles, appear and rapidly fade. Aroma is heavy on sterile gauze and horsehair from the Brettanomyces, not the best. Orchard apples and wet hay. Taste is softly tart apple, with some spiciness in the back, very dry finish, no residual sweetness. Virtually still like unblended lambic. Fairly quenching, not especially complex, but worth a try.

Missed this when Chip posted it the first time too.  :researching:

I have 2 different batches of cider aging in kegs at the moment.

A new cidery opened in East Austin. This is their first release. Dry, carbonated as tasty but it has an odd medicinal after taste that kind of ruined it for me.

Sure. They may also be ones that market themselves as from a town famous for their apples, Julian CA, but are contract brewed from big facilities Oregon with Oregon apples and have gotten themselves in 20+ states in a year and a half.  :coffee:

Aren't the "macro ciders" the ones from concentrate and have added sugar?  :coffee:
:coffee:
Sure. They may also be ones that market themselves as from a town famous for their apples, Julian CA, but are contract brewed from big facilities Oregon with Oregon apples and have gotten themselves in 20+ states in a year and a half.  :coffee:
You forgot to mention some of their apples are from Washington state too ;)

DOH!
I was just real disenchanted when my girlfriend wanted me to take her to Julian and I thought "sweet. I'll get to see cider house". Then I saw it was only a gift shop and they have little to notjing to do with Julian.
Home is where the Nelson is.

 I thought it was good.  Based on the color,I was really afraid it was going to be too sweet but was pleasantly surprised.

Can't wait to bring back the Wandering Aengus ciders.

They're awesome.

Albermarle Ciderworks "Royal Pippen".  Named after the varietal of apple, this is dryer than I expected but really good.  I just started trying ciders from these guys.  They make at least 4 different ciders and depending on whether I want a dry or a sweet cider, this is one of my favorite two.  Makes me want to consider a cidery in addition to a brewery when we get my wife the goat farm she keeps wanting (her deal being cheese).
