    Finally got around to bottling the cider. About 1/3d is bottled still and 2/3ds bottled with back carbonation. It came out pretty good for a first attempt. Light and dry, but distinctly apple. We used the dishwasher as a stage to hold the sanitized bottles and to catch any drips and spills. My son did the filling and I did the capping. I hope I got the carbonation right. The bottles are in my office!

    We hope to make our first batch of beer tomorrow. Fun stuff.

    Looks great BG.

    Did you bottle or batch prime for your carbonation?

    Thanks. I batch primed. Will check a bottle in a couple weeks to see how it's doing.
