Perry!!

Post by SmokeyMcB » 3 years ago

Got a stepped up starter going from WLP400 as we speak and I just reciently pulled the pears from my freezer and put them into my beer fridge to thaw.

Hoping to process and press these this weekend.

Put this into secondary the other day. Smells great and it had a beautiful yeast cake so I whipped up a batch of Skeeter Pee and poured it right on top. The Pee is bubbling away nicely now.

A buddy of mine just handed me a box with 10x2L bottles of apple cider so looks like I'm gonna be making an apple cider to go along with the perry! The pipeline is starting to really fill up now!
