I'm going to be attempting my first cyser this week, and was looking for some input. Here is what I have in mind for a 3 gal batch-
-2 gals fresh pressed cider
-6lbs orange blossom honey
-(2) 12oz cans apple concentrate
-32oz bottle of cherry juice
-packet of D47 or safale S-04
My concern is that 6lbs of honey for three gallons will be too sweet, especially with S-04. I want it to be on the sweet side, just not overwhelming. I don't really care how strong it is, just looking for a good taste. I have also been thinking of kicking it up to 5 gallons by adding another gallon of cider, 32oz bottle of cherry juice, and topping with water.
Please let me know what you think.
