My doobrey reading was 1.003, not as dry as Thargs, which is a bit surprising as his has been cool and mine warm. I hope to rack soon. I agree that the taste is already superior (though I say it myself!) to any bottled commercial ciders I have tried, except for Kieth's. I am very glad I went natural.

Anyone else is welcome to borrow the doobreyometer.

Sorry Jo, when I said commercial cider I meant Strongbow etc.
Keith makes real cider.

I'd like to borrow your doobreyometer sometime please Jo (you need the doobrey reading to enter the Big Apple. I don't think I'd really care otherwise.)

...if you press it, they will come.

if you need a doobrey reading for the Big Apple then I'll need to borrow it as well.

You are welcome, Tharg has it just now so you could get it off him if your cider has finished fermenting and settled down already, but I suspect it has not yet done so, so the SG might still change.

And you're still alive, so it must be OK ;0)

Came across an old trade card this morning:

"Cider Cellars Maiden Lane Covent Garden
New & Splendid Room
John Regan
Having at an immense expense completed his improvements, trusts his exertions will merit, from a deserving Public, a continuance of that support and general Patronage, which his old Established and Favourite Place of Resort has for so many Years experienced.
Wines, Spirits, Dinners, Chops & c. of the best Quality and Moderate Charges.
The Harmonic Every Evening
Oct 23rd 1835"


It also has an engraving of the entrance, above which was painted:
"Bottled Ales, Stout, Cider & Perry"

Is this the first gastropub conversion?

Could be, I bet you don't get "The Harmonic Every Evening" round at The Hartley.
