Started 2 gallons of cider, 2012's first brew.
One of them has cloves in it...

And the elderberry is down to 0.990, so I've racked it but will leave it a bit before bottling - still slightly tannic. Other than that quite nice, less syrupy than last year's.

The 3 plums are beginning to clear, finally. Still a way off bottling though.

The parsnip and carrot are still fermenting. They'll want racking sometime between now and the end of the month though, I think.

Is the grape still in the airing cupboard?

Yes, and still managing a bubble every day or so. It may as well stay somewhere warm while it's managing to bubble at all.
It was the "put it away for X in case it comes good after all" one, if you remember.
It doesn't need racking (in fact it's fairly clear), but I could take a gravity reading and a sneaktaste if you want a decision on its future.

If it's still going, leave it, I just didn't want it forgotten!
