Our first time making hard apple cider was both a success and a failure all at once. Let me explain. We successfully made the best tasting hard apple cider I’ve ever had in my life, but we also almost killed someone when we realized that bottles under heat can explode. This is one of those real life is crazier than fiction moments.
Fear not, exploding cider isn’t a common thing, though we proved it does happen. Don’t let that turn you off from the idea of making it. Just be sure not to store it anywhere that has extreme high temperatures.
