We choose the affordable, Energy Star efficient Danby DAR440BL compact refrigerator. This fridge will not accomodate a full size sanke keg, but works great for two 5 gallon cornelius kegs (which you can fill with homebrew or beer from your local brewery). Compactness, affordability, and efficiency were our main goals here.
In this article, we explain how to brew your own hard apple or pear cider (a.k.a. perry)
What to Expect
Naturally-made, or craft cider is quite dry. It is not sweet because the yeast, left to do its job, will consume most of the sugar in the juice. Many commercial ciders are "back sweetened". This consists of killing and stabilizing the yeast (using preservatives, heat, and/or filtering), and then adding sugar.
Choosing your Juice
We will consider using apples (cider) and pears (perry) in this article, but you can use the methods here with other fruit, for example plums.
