Okay, I finally took a taste of mine... WOW... I used the WLP 300 and it is sitting at about .990 for the FG... it tastes AWESOME, it is dry, obvously, but VERY fruity... it is phenominal! You have to try it!

Hey, when does the sulfur scent leave the brew??

I'll be doing a cider with either the Wyeast 3068 or WLP300 in a week or two. I'll make sure to report back here.

I've had the best success with ale yeasts for cider, particularly Nottingham and sometimes Coopers. I'm currently trying out the Windsor. It depends a lot on the apples as to which comes out the best

The only time I ever got a sulfur smell was using a lager yeast. I racked the jug and it cleared up in a couple of days and tasted fine

Bottled mine made with WLP300 today... simply awesome! I don't think I can wait for it to carb up
