15 gallons into glass carboys. 5 gallons into bucket.
All: starter'ed Wyeast liquid cider yeast.
5gl glass: + "playground" dregs culture.
(Maybe date is wrong) Kegged the two non-sour glass carboys into kegs "E" and "H". Dry, tart and apple-y.
Took 1 gallon from sour cider into 3 growlers. Added 350ml of frozen concentrate: white grape, apple cherry, kiwi strawberry. Added 1gl of pear juice into apple cider.
Last of non-sour cider in bucket kegged into "H". Super clean, no sourness or tartness at all.
Sample from apple+pear sour carboy: smells like shit, no real sour character, minor pear contribution. dump-worthy.
