You know, I posted this in the home brewing forum and I forgot we have a cider forum here as well. I will post this here and see if there are others that read this and not the other forums. For those of you who have read this, ignore me and just shake your head sadly at my double posts for attention.
I am thinking of making Dead Squirrel's Strawberry Cider recipe. I don't have champagne yeast, unfortunately. I know other yeast will make it more sweet, etc. Thought I would type the recipe and get your thoughts on which yeast, if any, I should pitch if I do this this weekend:
3 lbs frozen strawberries
2 lbs dark brown sugar
2 lbs clover honey
5 gal cider
Here are my yeast choices:
Red Star Active Dry Wine Yeast - 5 grams
Lalvin EC-1118 Wine Yeast - 5 grams
Morgan's Lager yeast - 6 grams
Nottingham Brewing Yeast - 11g
Fermentis Dry Ale Yeast Saflager-23, 11.5 g
Cooper's Ale - 7g
hehe, there ya go. opinions?
