I made a farely good and potent cider a couple months
ago. It is modified from one that I got from The Cats Meow 3
called Sweet and Strong Still Cider.
Since then I have started to read the
cider and perry
real cider is supposed to be made with ale yeast. Well next
batch I'll try it this way.
- 18 cans Seneca apple juice
- 4 lbs brown sugar
- 10 cloves
- 10 cinnimon sticks
- lavlin ec-1118 yeast
I put all this into a carboy, no boiling or sulfites no nothing,
lete site for two weeks, fermentation took about 50 hrs to start,
racked to a secondary with spices going too. bottled about
two weeks latter with 3/4 primming sugar (corn sugar). lete
site for two more weeks (really needs 2 months to clear or
maybe irish moss to help). Drink this stuff as cold as you
can get it, but watch it'll get ya.
