Single Varietals: The Lazy Man’s Cyder

The single-varietal cyders were racked into secondary earlier this week. Even this early in their development there’s a pleasant sharpness to them both.

Russett and Gravenstein Secondary January 2015

L – 3 gallons Golden Russett (natural yeast)
M & R- 1.5 gallons Gravenstein (cider yeast)

I’m as eager for these to finish as I was with any of my previous cyders, but I notice a difference with these. They’re both pretty straightforward juices with no added sugars or other ingredients (though one does have pitched yeast). Because they’re so simple, I’m feeling kind of lazy.

If only this is what lazy usually got me.
