I wonder if you could use a malolactic yeast at the end of your ferment ( i think the whitelabs one recommends 5 brix) to get rid of some of the twang youd inherit from the cranberries. May allow you to backsweeten a little less at any rate. Not sure what this would do to the overall taste. I know I like my ciders a little bit on the sharp side but with the addition of cranberries you might see some benefit. I know cranberries can be pretty high in malic acid. Be a fun experiment at any rate. Anyone have any info they can share on this?

My crancyser is now at 1.01 its oddly sweet...is it from the Safale SO4 yeast or what? I am glad I had planned to add cranberries, anyway, because it needs something for sure.

I'm sure it is the Safale 04. I love that yeast. My Raspberry/blueberry is getting near teast time. I had it the primary for six weeks and it has been in the secondary for four and it is still working.

Well I tasted my cran/cyser, its really good but a bit too sweet. I had decided to cold crash it at 7.25% ABV and it was just to sweet. I added 1/2 tsp. citric acid and 1 packet of Red Star pasteur champagne yeast to restart fermentation and dry it out a bit. I really didn't want it more alcoholic, but it tasted like a cheapo California rose wine. The residual sweetness is covering up the flavor of the cranberries. I also added some pectic enzyme cuz its cloudy as ballz. I'll post again in a month with a photo. It was started on 11/24 so it is now about 2 1/2 months old. I'd be happy to send a sample to anyone interested in trying it...just give it a couple months to finish out!
