Started Farmer Jim’s Cider

SG 1.048 22.0℃

Managed to squeeze 18 litres out of our fist pure cider apple harvest, took 10 litres home and set them off in my SS Brewtech 10 litre bucket along with 1 litre of dessert apple juice, also from today’s pressing. The yeast hasn’t arrived yet so I added one crushed Campden tablet to slow things down.

Farmer Jim measured his half of the batch with a traditional hydrometer and saw 1.048, so I’m going to run with my calibrated Tilt’s reading of 1.047.
