Bottled Blueberry Cider

SG 1.004 20.5℃ bottling private

Today I bottled Mangrove Jack’s Blueberry cider into 41 blue crown caps using various recycled Okells bottles. Each bottle also received two Easybrew carbonation drops (total target = 500ml) but no non-fermenting sugar since I added the whole 5g sachet of sweetener at the start.

The bottles were then moved to the server room where it’s presently 20.5 ℃ and I’m going to leave them there for exactly 5 days as instructed, before conditioning for another 7 days. I read somewhere that the blueberry flavouring doesn’t make for a very long lived brew, but at the same time I don’t want to rush it either.
