    Default CUK Cookbook

    Calling all budding chefs and would be gourmets.

    Cliphead has kindly volunteered his services to put together a CUK Cookbook - "Cooking Contractor Style" kindle version.

    So those of you interested, can you PM him and myself with your recipes??

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Default Turbo Cider now the summer was upon us.

    Home Brew - Wine & Beer Making Kits Recipes - Turbo Cider


    This a great recipe. Easy, quick and produces lovely refreshing cider in a few weeks with the minimal of effort. Knock together in 10 minutes and can be made all year round. Experiment with different flavours like Elderflower or Ginger for a interesting, refreshing drink.





    Equipment:

    Demijohn

    Airlock

    Syphon

    Steriliser

    Bottles




    Ingredients:

    5 litres of Apple Juice (ideally not from concentrate)

    150g sugar

    1 Packet of Yeast



    Instructions


    Sanitise and rinse all equipment.

    1. Heat 0.5 litres of the apple juice and dissolve the sugar. Simmer for 5 mins.

    2. Allow to cool and add to the demijohn.

    3. Top up with Apple Juice to 4.5 litres, shake to aerate and pitch yeast.

    4. Fit Airlock leave to ferment, topping up with remaining juice once initial foam has reduced.

    5. Ferment until complete, 1 - 2 weeks then bottle.

    6. Bottle in strong glass bottles adding 1/2 teaspoon of priming sugar to each.

    If you wish to make smaller/larger batches then adjust the ingredients accordingly. This will make a drink of approx 6% ABV. Reduce the sugar if you want to lower the ABV.

    This is a great base recipe to which lots of other ingredients can be added to give interesting variety.

    Experiment with different apple juices.

    Try adding Elderflowers, strawberries or ginger to give it twist.

    Check out our great brewing forum for more tips, advice and brewing banter.
