I made my first cider a few weeks ago, just a simple experiment with a gallon of cider, some cinnamon, and some leftover ale yeast (not sure which yeast). The OG was 1.060 and I have yet to take a hydrometer reading, as I'm trying to be patient!!
What I'm wondering is should I carbonate this cider? I know it's a matter of preference but what would you all suggest? I'd like to carbonate it but I'm not sure if the process is the same as beer. Do I need to pasteurize it? Please help! Thanks!
