So, first let me say that I am not a big drinker. I don't like beer, can't stand most wine, and straight liquor might as well be rubbing alcohal to my taste buds.
But, I love hard cider.
Truely, truely love.
So, inspired by another blogger, I am going to try my own home brew of the good ole stuff.
The ingredients are pretty simple. Unfiltered apple juice (aka apple cider), bread yeast (!!) and sugar. And glass bottles.
Ah yes, the glass bottles.
Until I started looking around, I didn't realize just home much plastic has taken over. Hardly anything larger than a bottle of beer is in glass. And I needed big containers. Like gallon or half gallon size.
But, after much racking of the brain, I found a solution.
Vermont Organic Milk!
It is still packaged and sold in glass bottles! So, I headed to the local natural foods store and bought four of these breakable babies.
And due to their precious cargo status, I proceeded to secure their safety by buckling them up in my daughter's booster seat. Fitting, don't you think?
Just don't tell her....
I am hoping to get down to the nitty gritty of the homebrewing this weekend, and will post some updates them. Until then, wish me luck.
I think I will need it....
