A Noob update: after spending much time researching every single thread I had time for and not wanting to "upset" all of the "serious" forum posters with my "stupid questions", this is how things turned out......my first batch of cider sat for 12 days in primary and had an FG of 1.01, I back sweetened the batch with 1/2 can of AJC and cold crashed in a corny keg with 12 psi of C02. After 4 days in the fridge it is amazing that this was such an easy process and produced a drinkable product in such a short amount of time. I have three more batches going, all with different yeasts and nutrients. Drinking your own cider rules!

Glad you are having fun. Now invite some friends and impress them with your brew over a BBQ or something

Cider is fun because its so easy to make! I think more people would make beer/cider/wine if they knew its not impossible or as hard as first thought. I hate having to buy commercial beer or cider now!

Anyway- I use the ipad app for this forum and the search option on it makes me want to punch puppies!!!!
