Default Anything Extra Needed to Be Added to a Cider?

Hey All

I am going to make the Graff this weekend and wanted to make sure that there is nothing extra I should add that is not in the recipe... Like "this tablet" or "that powder" or whatever. Never did a cider and didnt know if there was some kind of basic ingredient that I should use in a cider.

Thanks

For graff, not really. The malt makes the yeast pretty happy so I never found yeast nutrient to be needed.
The key for great cider is giving it time to fully ferment, and then condition before racking to secondary, then more time to let it age and let the flavour blend and taste right.
Keep things clean, give it time, I'm sure your like it.
