Ok, i've got an oktoberfest party coming up on october 20th. That's a little over a month from now. I have got 10 gallons of oktoberfest ready to go, but have been toying with the idea of a cider. Is there any way i can do a cider that will taste really good in less than a month? I can keg and force carb. I was thinking of something with just juice, no added sugar to keep the gravity low. Fresh pressed juice from a local cider mill (haven't even looked into this, not sure if juice is even available yet, i guess that could totally kill the whole idea), a simple ale yeast fermented cool so it's nice and crisp, and cold crash it to halt fermentation with a little residual sugar left.
So can it be done?
