I thought it was only 2 lbs....maybe that was changed in the revised version. All you'll really be doing is adding alcohol content. I think the taste will be the same. You would have ended up with 10 more points or so of gravity but, I think, ended at the same SG. You'll just be able to drink a few more at a time now

mixing it in just gives them the oxygen they need to continue doing what they do best anyway!

Yeah I'd leave it. Your just going to end up with a drink with less abv. Good news is you'll be able to drink it sooner even though it already tasted really good green

So i bottled my second batch yesterday in 22oz bombers, instead of 12oz bottles. Is it going to take longer to carb up? I also filled up a pop bottle to check, but I am not sure it will indicate the time the bombers are ready. Thoughts?

Dumb question. Where do I get the dextrose? Is it something I can get at the grocery store or at my home brew store?

Its corn sugar. Your local brew store should have it.

Thanks for the info. This is my first brew of anything. My wife got me the brew kit for Xmas with my knowledge. I have been trying to get her to let me get started on a beer brew before Christmas with no luck. I mentioned this recipe to her and I got a 5 gallon batch in ferment or last night. Recipe seems easy enough except for bottle bombs which I will watch closely. I hope mine turns out as good as you guys have been saying it is.

This recipe was definitely a big hit for my wife. She even went out and bought an additional 5 gallons of cider to make more. Unfortunately, she didn't realize cider with sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate is a big no-no. My fault for not telling her, but she could have mentioned she was planning on buying some more cider...

Mine has now been in the primary for 4 weeks...still bubbling...took a gravity reading and the OG was 1.011...weird thing is, at 65 degrees, i have a slight effervescence to the cider! not sure what to do here and whether to back sweeten or just add some apple pie spices, the cider has a hint of sweetness to it and tastes amazing on its own.
