It's at least $1.79 at my Wally store. I have read a lot of posts looking for a pineapple, orange, apple cider, and I can't get a consensus from any. Does anyone in this forum have experience with pineapple and orange juices to ferment? Any help/information at all will be appreciated. It is the Dole brand, if that makes any difference. I hate to throw away $6.00 in ingredients by finding out a made a poor choice.


Aging from last year: Hard Cider, Triple Chocolate Stout, American Amber II
First fermenter: American Mild
Second fermenter: Empty
Long term aging: Strong Scottish Ale, American Stout
3 new hard ciders, first is a Apple Raspberry, second will be a Apple Grape, and third Apple Cranberry. These will all become Jacked Ciders

I have been experimenting with different juices for making ciders, which is the saem thing just with beer yeast, and so far everything has been drinkable. Make a gallon batch and try it!

I did try an orange pineapple cider recently, and it tasted muuuuch better backsweetened and carbonated than the hydrometer sample.

You can ferment any flavor juice frozen or bottled, any brand, just make sure its 100% juice and doesnt have preservatives in it. go for it! I routinely used whatever juice is on sale, and some of the cheapest ones turn out the best

Heres I would make a pineapple orange apple cider from concentrate.

1 Gallon Jug
2 cans apple juice concentrate
1 can pineapple orange concentrate
1 tsp nutrient
1 packet nottingham Ale yeast
1 can Pineapple orange to backsweeten

Thaw juice, throw all ingredients (except yeast) into fermenter with water to make a gallon. Use warm water to get temp to 70ish. Take hydrometer reading. Typical cider is 1.50-1.060 OG. Pitch yeast and shake gallon jug vigorously.
Afix blowoff hose/airlock.

After 10 days-2 weeks, check gravity. If its 1.015 or below, transfer to bottling bucket, add the second can of Pineapple Orange juice, and bottle. Stovetop pasteurize when desired carbonation is reached, usually 3-6 days.

Primary: Wheat Graff, Blackberry Wine, Pomegranate Wine
On Deck: White Grape-Cherry Wine, Ciders

Friends don't let friends brew alone.
