To address a couple posts on reusing yeast. It is a standard practice at brewery's to reuse yeast for several generations. At our brewery we go 6 - 10 generations regularly.

So back to my home brewing of ciders. I have just finished and drank a good portion of my 4th batch of basic cider. 1 week per batch. reused same yeast cake each time. No aging, it taste great right out of the fermenter. Cheap and fast. Brew day ( if you could call it that) and time to serving. I spend 30 to 60 minutes per week to make a 5+ gallon batch.

I have played with sweetening with some unfermented juices of different types when I bottle back into the emptied jugs the juice came in. Some of my friends like it that way some like it dry.
They do want me to carbonate some so I will put some in a corney and force carb and set my keggerator back up.
This week we are going to put it in the Blichman connical so we can do a 10+ Gallon batch. Demand is high! Friends love putting this over ice on a hot day while hanging out on the porch. We are in Florida this time of year so weather is already HOT.

This is the first I managed to age a few gallon for 3 weeks and carbonate! It did soften the edges a little, and it is crystal clear.
