...or rather down the drain outside.
220 litres.

Not happy with it - just not good enough, so Ive messed with it this afternoon, gone back to it and decided - no, its just not going to reflect my expectations.

So, its gone.

Im a bit cross.

tis better to be ruthless than to ruin your reputation or put another way tis better you pour it away than the folk who just bought it pour it away.

i might have been tempted to "warm"it a little and see if the "product"was worth doing the whole batch

some very nice calvados is made from undrinkable cider.

Thats why I tweaked and twiddled with it...
but it just wasnt good enough.

Reputation is everything. I just need one person to say, 'oooh yuk' and thats it.

Ah well, I do have high standards....

Next time that happens, let me send you some vinegar mothers. Rather make vinegar than tip it down the drain.

that might be another good idea to try ,if it was truly vile even deicing fluid is a bit of a push

If you want to try the cider vinegar thing *don't* keep them/it anywhere near where you're storing/bottling your cider.

No, Ive been told - get rid of quick - if it did go to vinegar its goodbye barrell, goodbye pump and also been told not to have it in the same building as it 'travels in the air',
so first thing tomorrow THE BIG CLEAN.

In our local Chinese supermarket they sell cider vinegar heavily sweetened in a can. As pop.
