I made my first batch of cider using the following recipe:
* 2.5 gallons apple juice
* 1 cup brown sugar
* Champaign yeast
Nothing too elaborate, but it has been sitting in the primary now for about a month and I'm just about to bottle it. I've tasted it over the past few weeks and it seems like it was at it it's best about week ago, now it has a kind of off flavor, sort of a bite to it, kinda hard to describe. Last week it was much smoother, yet a little dry. Anyway, how long is too long in the primary for cider? Could I have left it in the primary too long?
