I didn't add fruit, juice or water or anything like that. These were 1-gallon fruit "ciders" from a local farm. Technically, "Cider" refers to apple pressings, but I made the reference to "strawberry cider" and "peach cider" simply because that's what the farm labels them as.

All I did was buy the jugs, add half a sachet of Montrachet yeast to each one, and popped an airlock on the jugs.

Yeah, I tried the strawberry too. It's really good as well, but I'll have to wait until the final carbonated product is ready before I pass judgment on which is better.

ZOMBIE THREAD!!!!

I made 5 gallons of apple cider at about 10.5%, I let it sit for 5 months to clear and age. It tasted like jet fuel, I think it could have ran my car. I diluted 50/50 with fresh juice, it turned out amazing. My question, why did yours taste good after such a short time?

I have another post about peach cider, to which no one has replied. But I plan on using a peach wine recipe, but only take it about 5-6%, stabilize, back-sweeten, keg, carb and imbibe. I don't know what yeast to use to get a quick turn around.

Anyway, Thanks
