So I'm over big, rocket-fuel type beer/cider....for the moment. I have a 2.5 gallon better bottle carboy, which is great for trying out stuff.
2 Gallons Apple Juice
1/2 Gallon Water
Lalvin EC-1118 (it was on hand, I would rather have used an ale yeast, but didn't wanna wait til I was next near my LHBS.....)
OG is 1.040, which may still yield a 5 to 5.5% cider. I may eventually try to get a cider that is down around 3.5% and still have drinkability. Great for lawnmowing and such.
Thoughts? Has anyone got experience with this?
