I could not resist this $7.29 jug of apple cider. Having a few more tools in my fermentation arsenal I decided to try one of the simplest ways to make alcohol which is right out of Sandor Katz's book. Just remove the cap and secure cheese cloth across the top. This is a open fermentation. Apparently the cider will taste quite good from days 3-5. After that a sour / dryness will kick in as the beverage begins it conversion to vinegar. I kicked this off on a Tuesday hoping to be able to drink the cider over a weekend.
