1st time cider bla bla bla...
Day one, 2 gallons Murray's filtered pasteurized
Apple cider with no preservatives. Added 2 cups of organic cane sugar. OG was 1.059
Pitched 1 pkg. Nottingham dry yeast ... The lazy way. Inserted air lock.
Fast forward 4 days... Now 1.018 and wife says its good. Put it in the fridge... Next morning bottle it in sterilized , clean, 3 6-packs of green 12 oz bottles and one 20 oz coke PET bottle .
16 hrs later, coke bottle is good and firm so all three sixer's go in the dishwasher on sterilize rinse cycle.
Easy-peazey ... Tastes good enough that I'm passing it out to the neighbors. It was a little yeasty tasting coming off the pasteurization but a few days in the fridge later, it seems to have gone away.
