Made this Peary in October 2018. Stuff happened and it ended up like this. I kegged it today after tasting. It wasn’t rancid and actually had a very light taste. Any comments? Any risk of botulism?
What's it taste like? If it's been sealed up in your carboy it shouldn't have gone bad.
Tasted like very light pears. Not off-putting.
Well that sounds promising. Was it straight pear juice? Did you add sugar or raisons?
Straight pear cider. I racked it once and I think it got something in it at that point. I’m very interested to see how it tastes gassed.
Well I've never made straight pear cider but I bet it will be good carbonated and chilled. It will be a refreshing thirst quencher come summer. Make sure to bottle some for the future
Are you able to check the pH? If it's below 4.3 and along with fermentation, your risk of botulism is nil.
I’ll have to pull a sample and check.
