Sadly no. But by harvest of apples for this year that I made in to cider is just finishing so I guess I could still but I'm worried to waste it if it doesn't turn out.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I figure it was better than starting a new one.

I started a 3 gallon batch of cider today that I'm going to dry hop with either Cascade or Willamette.

If anyone is interested I will let you know how it ends up.

3 gallons apple juice
1.5 cups brown sugar
1.5 cups white sugar
4 tsp yeast nutrient.
Safale-05 Ale Yeast
OG 1.064 expected FG 1.000 & expected ABV 8.4%

I'd be very interested in how this turns out. Do you have any idea how long you are going to ferment or dry hop for? Just out of curiosity.

I'm going to let it ferment dry. I'm not sure how long that's going to be but my carboy is bubbling like crazy so I don't think it should be more than a few weeks.

I was going to dry hop 1oz for 7 days.

I'll be following this thread and plan to try my hand at a hopped cider soon. I regularly drink New Day Meadery's ReThinker apple/blueberry dry hopped cider. MAN is that stuff good!

Today I threw in a half ounce of Cascade into my 3 gallon batch. I will let it go for a week, take a sample and see how it tastes. If it tastes how I want it it will be time to bottle. If not I have another half ounce I can throw in.

I'm a Seattle-ite with regular access to the deliciousness that is Finn River dry hopped cider. Homebrew beers all the time, taking my first crack at a cider with just a 1 gallon batch. Here's the plan:

1 gallon juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
Ale Yeast

1 week primary, 1 week secondary - dry hop in secondary with 1/4 ounce of fresh picked Cascade hops i got from a buddy at work.

Here we go!

Cold crashing mine right now. Will take a sample tomorrow and determine if more hops are going in or if it's time to bottle.

I've seen a recipe for a creamy oat cider and it only had .5 oz for 5 gallons. Might want to use less than an ounce, but I want to see how this turns out!
