A cider-like drink

Should you have enough apples to give you four pounds when grated, then this might be the recipe for you – if you like cider that is, which I don’t. This comes from Ambrose Heath’s 1950’s book an home brewing, home-made wine, liqueurs etc., ‘Home-made Wines and Liqueurs.’.

Apple Beer

  • 4 lbs grated apples
  • 2 lbs sugar
  • 2 oz root ginger
  • 1 level tsp each cinnamon stick and whole cloves
  1. pour 4 gallons of boiling water over the grated apple
  2. stir each day for a fortnight
  3. strain and add the sugar, ginger, cinnamon and cloves
  4. pour into a cask and bung tightly
  5. in 6 weeks it will be ready to bottle, and makes a cider-like drink
