Why??!!

That stuff tastes awful! You'll need lots of chemicals to match the flavour of the original.

It's the macro cider here in the UK. It also tastes nothing like cider tastes!

Do you get many British ciders in the states? Weston's ciders seem to pretty widely distributed, and are pretty good. Other good examples off the top of my head are Ralph's and Gwynt y Ddraig.

Strongbow, Magners, Bulmers is about all of the UK ciders we get, at least the ones that are moderately easy to find.

So I wanted to bring this up again. BECAUSE I LIKE STRONGBOW. Some people like budlight and craft beer. Some like strongbow.

This is what I was thinking but wasnt sure on the amounts.

5 gallons Motts
Acid blend OR Malic Acid
White Labs English Cider yeast OR Nottingham Ale yeast
Ferment at a VERY low temperature
Lastly Kill yeast and add no more than a can of frozen juice concentrate

This is the best way I figure to duplicate strongbow. it is made with apple juice and is very clear. So use motts. PLus its cheap. The white labs yeast says it brings back the apple flavor. The strongbow label says malic acid right on the label, i figure this is how it gets some of the tartness. Fermenting at a low temp with decrease the chance of imparting any yeast flavor. Lastly adding a the juice concentrate after killing the yeast because strong is still appley and not entirely dry.

Thoughts???? Suggestions???? I really think im on to something but need more input

I am not much of a cider maker so take this with the grain of salt it deserves, but the one time I made cider, it ended up pretty tart from the vitamin c added to the original apple juice as a preservative. Use a yeast nutrient to avoid a healthy case of rhinoceros farts during fermentation.

It's easy as pie to make a Dry Blackthorne clone.

Just apple juice and champ yeast.
Add 4 gr of cane sugar per 500ml.
Ferment for 7-10 days, bottle and you can chill it after another 5 days or so!
It's great,easy,quick and refreshing, especially in the heat over here in Thailand.
