Cider 1.5

So the cider has been bubbling away for about two weeks now and seems to have calmed down and floced a good portion of the yeast so it is time to move on to phase two.

The plan is to rack the cider into a five gallon carboy and start a new batch of cyser on the yeast in the primary. To that end today I picked up five more gallons of sweet cider, two gallons of Granny Smith, two of Jonagold, and one of Aurora. Oddly enough the Aurora tastes the sweetest, but has the least amount of sugar in it, but it has a great aroma so that is why I threw it into the mix. I also have six pounds of apple blossom honey that I am going to use. Apple blossom honey is actually hard to get because the trees bloom so early that the bees consume it as fast as they make it. I figure I am going to add four pounds into the fermenter and then use the last two pounds to backsweeten later on.
