Peach/Apple Cider recipe
I've been keeping a log for myself of my brews thus far, and just joining these forums, I suppose throwing up some of my favorite ones is a good idea.
Size: 3 gallons
-1 Jar each of Mcintoch, Gala, Gravenstein, and Filtered Apple Juice (from trader joes, 64oz each. Any other apple juice will do though)
-1 Jar "Dixie peach" (also from trader joes, although this is mainly just peach+apple+white grape juice 64oz)
-topped off with Jumex Peach (or any peach necter will do)
-1.5 pounds wildflower Honey
-Yeast nutriant (as per directed on package)
Yeast: White Labs "Sweet Mead"
Dissolve Honey and yeast nutrient into apple juice, place in carboy, top off with peach necter of some type, add yeast, attach airlock and wait. I racked this once after 12 days or so, then bottled 4 days after using about a half tablespoon of honey as primer in each 12 oz stub. After 2 months it should be getting better, and should be quite dry, with a little peach aftertaste, REALLY good, turns out around 11-12% abv.
