recipe sounds good... just for future reference I NEVER heat juice any more... i had heated a little apple juice to disolve honey and the cider never cleared (it is now 9 months later) however when i heated a little water for the honey then added the juice it cleared very quickly (the batch I started a month ago is crystal clear) the recipe is exactly the same.. the only thing I changed was not heating the juice... I guess it has something to do with pectins in the juice that make it hazy.. I don't know how it works.. just that it does..
But then again... it doesn't affect the taste so enjoy this batch.. definatly keep us updated... also did you take a gravity reading before pitching they yeast??
