I followed the initial recipe but instead used S04. I just back sweetened after a day in the keg. I made the syrup and mixed in a can of aj concentrate into the syrup. I then added just 1.5 cups of said syrup and it is perfectly sweetened for my taste. This recipe is a winner but definitely go easy on the back sweetening.

Just bottled my first batch. I used some fresh cider and about a cup and a half of the carmel syrup, I like my stuff kinda dry. The good news is I think it tasted great, the bad news is I dropped my carboy when I went to clean it .Don't worry, the booze is safe! I guess I'm off to the LHBS tomorrow morning so I can start another batch.

Alright,
Down to 1.012 SG
So... I'm going to rack her onto Camden tablets.
Question.
How long after bottling it (still, and into wine bottles) is it good to drink and share?

Thanks all!!!

Spencer

Also,
I just realized I don't have any more air locks for my carboys!!!
After racking it onto Camden tablets can I just cover with syranwrap? Considering there should be no c02 action?
Also I don't have any cam den tablets will just potassium meta sulfite be enough?

Thanks Mike for this recipe, everything turned out great. Had one bottle explode out of 60, in the stove top pasteurization pot, other then that it was smooth sailing. I used Indian Summer Apple Juice, Nottingham yeast with 3 cans of concentrate for the first batch, ended up with about 9.5% abv. I have another 5 gallons started last week with S04 and Costco (not from concentrate) apple juice, it will be interesting to compare the two.

Could I carb and pasteurize these in mason jars? Or would it not carb? Or bible over during pasteurization? Just wondering. I feel it would look cool for gifts and I have a bunch.

Mason jars are not made to handle carbonation, so what you would be going as gifts would be little bombs. Assuming they made it that far. They wold probly explode before you gave them out, ruining anything around them. Mason jars are a recipe for disaster..... And hospital visits....

Maybe he doesn't like the people he is giving them to. Cow-Orkers and such. In that case, go for it!
