Default Hopped hard cider

Heys

I made some cider batches and i love it.
Last sunday i started an hopped cider, everyone seems to be talking about it on youtube and it looks delicious

I just bought 5L of 100% apple juice, added 550g of white sugar and pitched lalvin-D47.
I already have cascade hops and when it stops fermenting i will add 25g /30g of hop pellets for about 10 days.
On bottling time i will add white sugar to the bottles to carbonate.

Cheers

Added the hops last sunday, 30gm cascade, and I'm going to let them in until next Thursday.

Have you tasted it yet? I made a 3 gallon batch a month or so ago. I just added all my random hops and a lime. I racked it two weeks ago. Tasted..... Interesting.... Too much lime maybe.... Going to do the same thing tho. Going to add some cascade, let it sit, then bottle in a week or two after. Even with the heavy lime, once it's cold and carbed, it should be good!

Are you carbing or going to leave still?

Mmmmmm. Nice! I bottled mine on Tuesday. I was afraid it was going to suck because I added lime in primary.....but, a friend and I tried two last night. They weren't fully carbed , but it was enough to tell me how tasty they are going to be in a few weeks!

I was at my good beer store last night and discovered a hopped vodka!

Mine is still very cloudy and i think it will not clear but it tastes great

Did you hop it in primary or secondary, also you left it about one and a half weeks in there. How much flavor did it give you?
