Go for five. I did only three and I should have done five. It's the best cider I've done so far.

Going to add some Amarillo in a 1-gallon batch that's ready for the hops. I'm hoping the flavors work well together.

Working on one myself at the moment, Willamette and Chinook hops, lots of the latter. Results soon!

I bottled the Amarillo test batch after 2 days with the hops. It holds a lot of promise. We'll see how it ends up after it carbs and ages for a few weeks. I do think the Amarillo blends well with the cider.

I used 7 grams (about .24 ounce) over 2 days in a 1 gallon test batch. I tasted the cider from the plastic soda bottle carb test. It's a little too overpowering now for my taste, but that could very well change as it ages. If I knew then what I know now, I probably would have used 1/2 the amount of hops and let it sit longer if needed to reach the taste I'm going for.

I used .5oz of Cascade in a 3 gallon batch for 7 days. The aroma was a strong grassy hay smell initially but it's tapered off since then and is now just about what I was going for.

I'm happy to report that my 1-gallon test batch of Amarillo has mellowed down nicely after a little more than a week in the bottle. I'll open another one after a few more weeks. The Amarillo is definitely a nice blend with the cider.
