KISS V2 has been in bottles since the beginning of September. In October I will crack one open and see where we are with that recipe.
Great. Keep us posted!

Sounds good. Looks like this, minus the cinnamon sticks.

I did 1 gallon of Kroger Natural Apple Juice (no Vitamin C) and enough table sugar to get to 1.070. Pitched WY1450. Fermented to 1.036. Bottled. Let carbonate. Pasteurized half and put half in the fridge. That way I can compare the two.

The 5 day Sweet Country Cider was the inspiration for my experiment. I wanted something simple and it looks much closer to your recipe.

I like the KISS approach.

Could I add this if I wanted to? And where does one get the left testical from a two-horned unicorn?

Next to the right one of course. Mind the horns.

No luck at the lhbs? I'm curious as to what it would add to the flavor profile...

Go to the unicorn ranch.
Find the two horned mutant.
Have the rancher castrate him to purify the blood line while you watch.
Buy the left one.

Simple, no?

Yes but the rancher wants an arm and a leg for the testicle.
