Non Sequitur

Cider is made from apple juice which has undergone two different kinds of fermentation. The first fermentation is carried out by yeasts which have either been added deliberately or which are naturally present on the apple skins. This fermentation converts sugars to ethanol and the higher alcohols (fusel alcohols). The second fermentation, the malo-lactic fermentation converts L(-)-malic acid to L(+)-lactic acid and carbon dioxide. This fermentation is carried out by lactic acid bacteria which are present in the apple juice and also in the area in which the fermentation is carried out. The malo-lactic fermentation can occur concurrently with the yeast fermentation but more often it is delayed until the fully fermented cider reaches 15 C, normally in the late spring or early summer of the year following that in which the cider was made.

Once cider is in a fermentation tank, it cannot be moved, because this will stir up sediments. After around two months, the cider is carefully decanted and the container is cleaned to remove sediment. The cider can age in an oak barrel, or be placed back in the fermentation tank, as long as it is meticulously cleaned. At this stage, the hard cider will taste very sharp and raw; the flavor will mellow as it ages.
