Brush it on, let it dry, and it's good to go!

Hmmm. What is difference anymore, between apple cider and apple juice. Sure would not know from what sold around here, nowadays.
I only have one quart of shine left from my batch. Enough to make a cocktail, I guess. Brad

Last time I drank apple pie, I was involved in ‘an incident’ that involved a trampoline and my sister in law - which is still best not spoken about to this day smiley

If consume enough, it can help with tuning sounding just fine. Make sure to share so listeners have plenty,

You'll have to make a trip to New Wing Land, we still have real cider, but you need to pick it up directly at the orchard.  They do have to pasteurize it now, but the best orchards use UV light and not heat.  The cider is dark, murkey, and really tastes like apples.  Most of the "cider" sold in the grocery store is apple juice.

Are cider and 'hard cider' different?  I've seen both terms but I'm unsure if they mean the same thing or not.  The term cider over here covers everything from fizzy commercial mass brewed rubbish to artisan pressed and fermented on the farm 'scrumpy'cider - the two drinks are a world apart yet share the same name.

Generally what we refer to as Cider is Sweet Cider, which is the juice from pressed apples.  Hard Cider is fermented cider.  Ferment long enough and it's vinegar.  The commercial hard cider does not at all taste like bootlegged hard cider that you make on your own, but that is really an acquired taste.

Thanks Dave, that makes sense.  i think what I'd refer to as decent cider would be similar to your bootlegged stuff.  Pressed apple juice which is then left to ferment over a long time leaving the natural yeasts on the skins to cause the fermentation.  The South West of England is particular well renowned for its' Cider - in fact I suspect our very own M06 quite possibly will enjoy the occasional pint.  Ive got a couple of cider apple trees in my garden, but they're taking their time  in growing.  In the interim, I usually make a few gallons every year with the apples from my dad's trees.

When I was a kid we could get fresh-squeezed, unprocessed cider from local orchards. A few years, we even had a neighborhood cider pressing party (a neighbor had a gorgeous and fully-functional antique cider press, complete with a grinder) and apples were both collected and purchased.

Us kids agreed that it was really rather dull and uninteresting until it had sat in the fridge for a week or two and natural carbonization had started. We'd also stash a few gallons in the cold cellarway, to be extracted and enjoyed at Thanksgiving and Christmas. By Christmas, it usually had quite a lot of... well, character.

I have no idea how much alcohol was in it, but my parents never shut us off from it.

Just a simple reminder;

What's the difference between a lawn mower and a banjo?

You can tune up a lawnmower...

And the lawnmower has a more dynamic range.
