Rauch Malted Cider

Bottled today, finally, after 7 weeks. Just another 2-3 weeks until bottle conditioning will be complete. I am excited to get a taste of this one when it's carbonated. It is definitely a unique malted cider. Final gravity of 1.006 which makes the brew 6% ABV. I'll post again in 2 weeks!
Thanks for reading!
CHEERS!

Rauch Malted Cider

Gravity reading today was 1.006 placing the ABV at 6.03. The dry hopping adds nice aromas that pair well with the smoke and apple. This malted cider will pair well with grilled and barbecued foods. It is definitely drier than beer and should prove to be a refreshing summer brew.
The yeast was quite active and hanging in suspension with some airlock activity after dry hopping, so that is why I am just now ready to bottle.
I'll post again in 2-3 weeks after bottle conditioning.

Thanks for reading!
CHEERS!
