Thinking of giving this a try. If I use cane sugar will it have more of a cider flavor?

Sorry I went back about 50 pages on this thread and found my answer.
Thanks and happy brewing

I tried using Cotes Des Blanc yeast, it hasn't cleared yet, but you should have no problem at all with krausen, there is extremely little in fact, just a few bubbles, but no foam to speak of.

I took a whiff tonight after 4 days and wow. No vinegar. No sulfur. No P....U....

Just a nice pure apple essence.

But what would you expect from something that looks like this?

Sure enough, for some reason I assumed all the generic brands would have more preservatives so I passed right over them. Thanks for the tip! I just mixed up a batch. Hopefully when my girlfriend gets back in town, she'll agree that it makes a fine center-piece for the coffee table. Really ties the room together.

Looking good! Now if we could only have a time machine to head out a few weeks into the future.

I understand, that's why I have multiple carboys going at the same time.
