It’s the final countdown, diddle-oo-doo…

Gravity at 1.003The cider’s not quite there yet – this evening’s check shows it to be 1.003 – so it’s looking like a bottling session on Saturday.

It’s got a good bright orange colour to it, in some way it’s a shame it’ll be hidden behind brown glass bottles.

By the way, if you’re trying this yourself, then you must sterilise your trial jar and hyrdrometer before checking so that you can safely pour the cider back in the FV (fermenting vessel).

Alternatively you can what I do and accidentally on purpose forget, then have to drink the trial sample as it would go to waste otherwise.
