Hard Cider

Classification: cider

Source: ( Issue #508, 10/2/90

For this recipe to turn out well, do not use pasteurized apple juice. My last batch took 3 weeks to ferment. If you notice unpleasant smells during this time, you can ignore them. Boy, does this turn out great!



Strain 3 gallons of cider into a 5-gallon carboy. Strain 1/2 gallon into pot and heat enough to allow sugar and honey to thoroughly dissolve. Pour into carboy and finish filling to neck. Pitch yeast and seal with airlock. When fermentation stops, bottle. Prime with sugar to add carbonation.
