This is a very good and cheap recipe wich give a carbonated cider at about 6 or 7 % alcohol. It's fast done, fast fermented and boilingless. Also, you don't need pectinase as the concentrated juices doesn't contains pectine. Great to taste in a hot summer! Any comments or questions? write me at firstname.lastname@example.org
