How To Brew Your Own Cider

brew your own cider header

Over in the USA, apple cider is a soft drink that is essentially just concentrated apple juice. But we all know that traditional British cider is where it’s at… Here in the UK, apple cider is fermented, which makes it alcoholic and it is revered as being a quintessential taste of summer, a staple of the West Country and is available in a massive array of fruity regional flavours. So how can you brew your own cider at home? We’ve found an easy to follow recipe from Countryfile that can help you learn the basics.

What home brewing equipment will you need? 

You’ll need: a juicer, straining bag, 5 gallon bucket open top bucket, 2 gallon bucket (you will need to drill 30 holes into the bottom), hydrometer, funnel, demijohns, measuring jug and cider bottles.

We’ve got a fantastic 30L Plastic Fermentation Bucket that would be great for making cider with, as it has a handy measurement guide printed on the side. We also have a wide range of glass beer and cider bottles with crown caps that are perfect for filling with your finished beverage.

What ingredients will you need?

Ingredients: 8kg apples, 5g champagne yeast, Campden tablets and sugar (only needed if you want to make sparkling cider). This quantity of ingredients will make 5 gallons (approximately 22 litres) of cider.

How To Brew Your Own Cider

Step 1: Pick Your Apples

If you’ve got an apple tree in your garden then great, but if not, supermarket apples are just as good. The type of apple you pick will determine the taste of your cider, so choose wisely. Bramley apples will produce a sharp, tangy cider, whilst Gala apples will create a sweeter flavour. You could even use both tangy and sweet apples together to make the perfect brew!

Step 2: Clean Your Home Brewing Equipment

Fermenting cider is a scientific process and it’s important to make sure that the equipment you’re using is free of any dirt or germs that might interfere with the process. Make sure that you soak all of your equipment in hot water for a couple of hours before use and add 4 Campden tablets per gallon of water used to sterilise them.

Step 3: Juice The Apples

Now that everything is clean and ready to go, you can extract the juice from your apples. Set up your juicer so that it dispenses the juice into your straining bag, which should be placed in your smaller straining bucket (with the 30 tiny holes drilled into the bottom). The straining bucket needs to above your larger fermenting bucket, which is where your perfectly filtered juice will end up. The straining bag and stating bucket will filter out all the tiny bits of pulp and skin that gets through the juicer’s filters, leaving you with a crystal clear apple juice. Measure the gravity of your pure apple juice using your hydrometer and record the measurement (you’ll need it later). Check out this handy guide to using a hydrometer, if you haven’t used one before.

Step 4: Add Yeast

Take a 1 pint measuring jug, fill to the top with some of your apple juice and then add 5g of champagne yeast. Leave for half an hour then stir thoroughly to disperse the yeast throughout the mixture. Divide your yeast mixture between your demijohns, then fill them to the top with the rest of your apple juice.

Step 5: Leave It To Ferment

Place your sealed demijohns in a warm place (between 15°C and 20°C) and leave them for 3-4 weeks until you have a clear cider.

Step 6: Measure The Alcohol Content

Use your hydrometer to measure the gravity of your cider. You need your cider to have a reading of 1 or less. If the reading is higher than 1, then leave the mix to ferment for a bit longer. Once you have your final measurement, then you can work out your cider’s alcohol content percentage using an ABV chart. You are aiming for an ABV of 4-5%.

Step 7: Dispense Into Bottle & Add Fizz (Optional)

You can now dispense your cider into your cider bottles. If you want a fizzy cider, then you need to add half a teaspoon of white sugar to each bottle before pouring in your cider. If you then leave your bottles for a few more weeks, your cider will be fizzy!

Step 8: Kick Back & Enjoy!

Cider is best served chilled and enjoyed on a sunny, warm(ish) British summer’s day. If you start making your home brew cider now, then you can have it ready for this summer!

Types Of Recyclable Plastic & Identifying Plastic Codes

Types Of Recyclable Plastic

We all know that plastic is notoriously not recycled enough in the UK, with only 44.9% of plastic waste being recovered or recycled in 2016. But why are we not recycling all of our plastic packaging? After all, it’s never been easier to recycle your home and business waste! You can request recycling bins from your local council and there are also plenty of recycling centres around the country that collect the things that your council will not. There is no excuse to send your recyclable waste to landfill! The confusion often lies in the sheer amount of different types of recyclable plastic. How are you supposed to know if your packaging is recyclable or not?

All packaging labels should indicate whether or not the plastic packaging is recyclable or not, which is usually signified by a number.

Plastic Codes

There are 7 codes of plastic that you need to look out for when disposing of your packaging.

1 – PET or PETE (polyethylene terephthalate)
Used for single use, clear plastic drinks bottles, fruit containers, ready meal food trays and polyester textile fibres.

2 – HDPE (high density polyethylene)
Used for milk bottles, shampoo bottles, margarine tubs and household cleaning bottles.

3 – V (Vinyl) or PVC
Used for shower curtains, children’s toys, detergent bottles and medical equipment.

4 – LDPE (low density polyethylene)
Used for carrier bags and squeezy bottles.

5 – PP (polypropylene)
Used for food pots, bottle tops, yogurt pots and sauce bottles.

5 – PS (polystyrene)
Used for meat packaging trays and egg cartons.

7 – O (other)
This category refers to all other plastics that are not listed above.

types of recyclable plastic codes

Types Of Recyclable Plastic

So which of the plastic codes above can be put into your recycling system? PET and HDPE plastics are by far the most commonly used in the UK, and they are both fully recyclable. At least 92% of local councils collect PET and HDPE bottles, but some areas do not collect certain forms of PET and HDPE  (such as food trays and tubs) due to issues with sorting, so it’s best to check online with your local council to confirm this. PVC is not collected by councils, so you must dispose of this material independently. Some plastic lumber makers accept PVC, so it’s a great idea to find one nearby if you are going to be regularly using this material. Usage of PVC packaging is generally declining due to it’s non-recyclability.

LDPE carrier bags are now often collected by supermarkets for recycling, but it is generally not accepted through local council bin collections. Some recycling centres do accept it, if they have mixed plastic recycling facilities. The same applies for PP and polystyrene plastics. Plastics that fit into code 7 consist of a variety of different plastic structures. You will need to check which plastic you have (this may be indicated on the brand label) in order to know what you can do to dispose of it responsibly. Some code 7 plastics, such as PLA, are even compostable!

Here at Ampulla, we have a wide range of plastic packaging products available for individuals and both small and large businesses to use. With no minimum order and discounts on the price per unit when you buy in larger quantities, you can be sure that you’re getting the best value! Take a look at our full range of plastic packaging, including jerry cans, bottles and tubs here.

We hope that you’ve found this short guide to types of recyclable plastic and plastic codes useful and that you will stop and think before throwing your plastic waste away! If you want to learn more about this subject, then we’ve found that Recycle Now is a great resource for finding out all the information you need about recycling in your area. They have tools to help you find your nearest recycling centre and advice on how to dispose of specific items such as electricals and textiles.

What’s New For Ampulla In 2019?

new year plans ampulla packaging

We would like to say Happy New Year to all our customers and wish you all the very best for 2019. Here at Ampulla, we have big plans ahead for this year that will make ordering from us much easier and we can get your products to you more quickly than last year!

So what exactly do we have planned for Ampulla in 2019?

Faster Dispatch Times

In 2018, we invested around £500,000 into a new warehouse building. This has allowed us to store more products than ever, which in turn means less time waiting for new stock to arrive and faster dispatch times for our customers! We always appreciate feedback on our service (good or bad) so that we can continually improve on the service that we are providing, as we know that what we do can directly affect your own business. To prove our commitment to this, we collect reviews from our customers via our Trustpilot page, which gives us the chance to get feedback directly from you and respond to your queries quickly. If you’ve got any comments for us, don’t be shy about leaving us a review!

More Environmentally Friendly Packaging Options

We are pleased to now be stocking products made from PCR materials (post consumer recycled). PCR products have been made using recycled material in part, so you can be sure that every product on Ampulla described as being ‘PCR’ is made up of at least 10% recycled material. This new initiative from our manufacturers is a big step into reducing plastic waste and the negative impact that it is having on our environment. We are proud that we will continue to add new product lines that are made using PCR material throughout the year to offer more choice to our customers and to do our bit for Planet Earth.

But what are the advantages of using PCR products in your business? As well as encouraging responsible plastic manufacturing, PCR also reduces your own businesses carbon footprint without losing the many functional benefits that plastic offers.

More Low Prices!

We always want to give our customers the best value for their packaging, which is why we already offer tiered pricing on all our items, so you can be sure that you’re getting the best price for the amount of items that you are ordering. We can always do better though, so in 2019 look out for more prices dropping! Make sure to check out our winter sale (now on), as we’ve lowered prices on a selection of our popular products, including jam jars, sirop bottles and dropper bottles. As well as this, you can also save 5% on any order placed before or on the 4th January! Just enter the code TRLWR6100 at the checkout to apply the discount.

We hope that you will continue to do business with Ampulla in 2019.

Introducing The PCR10 Environmental Initiative

pcr10

We’re pleased to announce the introduction of an environmental initiative called PCR10 to selected Ampulla plastic products! The term ‘PCR’ stand for ‘post-consumer recycled’. This simply refers to any material that has served its intended use as a finished product, then has been placed in the recycling system to be remade into a new product. As part of the new PCR10 initiative, certain plastic manufacturers have committed to using PCR material to manufacture at least 10% of every HDPE and PET plastic item made in the UK in 2019.

Wherever possible, the post-consumer recycled plastic material that is used will be sourced from the UK, so that the carbon footprint generated in order to manufacture these new products is kept as small as possible. The PCR10 initiative is very warmly welcomed by Ampulla and all those who are increasingly aware of the impact that single use plastic is having on our planet. We do hope that manufacturers continue to innovate products and inspire consumers to make positive changes, and we here at Ampulla will continue to promote these efforts!

Why Is PCR10 An Important Step?

  • It encourages responsible plastic manufacturing;
  • It reduces plastic waste;
  • It gives greater choice to consumers;
  • It reduces your company’s carbon footprint.

PCR10 Products Stocked By Ampulla

Currently, Ampulla has two products available that are part of the PCR10 initiative:

All listings for the products above are now made using the PCR material, regardless of which cap options you choose.

If you think that this selection is paltry, don’t get too worried – many of our current HDPE and PET products will also be phased out and replaced with the new identical PCR10 models once the old stock has been used! Please do keep an eye out for information on PCR10 products in our product descriptions to see which products are part of this group.

All of our disposable food packaging is made from PET plastic, which is recyclable, so that you can get the benefits that using plastic brings and not have to worry about adding to the plastic waste issue.

How To Sterilise Glass Bottles

how to sterilise glass bottles

Knowing how to sterilise glass bottles is important for anyone in the business of selling food and drink. As well as getting the glass clean of any dirt or residue that could be leftover from warehousing or transportation, the sterilisation process also kills off any nasty bacteria that would not usually be removed by just giving the glass a quick rinse in water.

Why Is Sterilising So Important?

You must sterilise your glass before use in consumer products for the following reasons:

  • Customer safety. If your glass is not sterilised properly, there could be some nasty germs lingering inside that could make your customers ill when they eat your product.
  • Product integrity. Some types of food or drink could react negatively with any bacteria that has been left on your glass packaging, therefore causing the taste or texture of your products to change.
  • Increases shelf life. By removing the germs and bacteria from your glass bottles and jars, you are increasing the amount of time that your product can be stored and safe to eat.

So how can you sterilise glass at home?

How To Sterilise Glass Bottles: Step By Step

This short guide is perfect for home bakers or small food producers to follow, however if you are a large producer, then it is more efficient for you to use large machines that are specifically designed to sterilise on a mass scale.

Step 1

First of all, you need to take your glass bottles and wash them throughly with hot, soapy water. DO NOT dry them with a tea towel.

Step 2

Next, you need to heat your oven to 140 degrees celsius or higher, place a sheet of baking paper on a middle shelf, then lay your glass bottles and *lids on it. Make sure that they are not touching each other, then leave to bake for 20 minutes until they are dry.

*Do not bake any lids that have rubber seals in the oven, as they will melt or lose shape. Instead, you will need to boil them in hot water and leave to dry in a rack.

Step 3

Take your glass out from the oven and leave to cool. Do not attempt to fill your bottles when they are still hot, as adding cold liquids to hot glass can cause the glass to crack. Once your bottles are cool, you are then free to fill with them with whatever wonderful drinks you so desire!

It’s that easy.
