benmurphy66:Rustee75: So patiently waiting for my take on Maoriboys Passionfruit Cerveza to be ready for drinking and I got thinking about ciders.
I brewed a batch of Blackrock cider a couple months ago. It came out fine, but not overly sweet like the manufactured brands .
If I could replicate something like the Wildside brand which the missus loves, I'd be in the good books for ages!
Has anyone tried the Mangrove Jacks Craft Series of ciders? Its like twice the price of the Blackrock but it could be twice as good?
Alternatively, anything I could easily add to the Blackrock to amp it up?
I made their spicy apple one, I had great hopes that it would be awesome as I really like their Craft series brew kits but it was the single worst drink I have ever tasted. Maybe it's just not to be my taste buds. That put me off home brew cider in general but I should give it another go sometime.
Damn! Thanks for that Benmurphy. Always good to hear other peoples experiences, good or bad! I'll see how flush I am post christmas tho, may still give it a shot but maybe not spicy apple !
