Who is this pink lady, and why did someone name an apple after her? We could probably Google that, but why spoil a good mystery. What we’re sure of is that she must have been pretty darn sweet because the sugar content of these apples yields an impressive 9% ABV when our yeast are through with them. For that reason, this mysterious Pink Lady will always hold a soft spot in our hearts and a deep desire from our high ABV palettes.
We fermented this cider until it was bone dry, and added a heft of hops and blackberries for a tart finish and a purple haze [insert guitar solo here].
