"Four or five days before you plan to drink your cider get hold of the best possible apple juice you can, you either slip down to the local market or supermarket and see what is available, or you use a juicing machine. Juice a blend of about two kilos of tart and sweet apples. Next three quarters fill a one litre plastic bottle with the juice, add a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of bakers or champagne yeast to the container, tighten the lid and shake, then, and this is very important, loosen the lid. Put the bottle in a warm place but out of the sun for two days, three days if you want a drier cider.
After two to three days fermentation, should be well underway and you should see froth on top of the apple juice this is the bubbles released when the yeasts turns the apple sugars to alcohol. Now you can try a small sip of your brew, if you are happy with the result place the bottle in the fridge to slow down the fermentation. If the fridge is cold it will probably stop the fermentation completely. After twenty four hours you should have a slightly spritzig, slightly alcoholic, medium sweet cider, it will be cloudy with bits of dead yeast in it and if you want to you can filter it through cheese cloth. Do not try to store your cider, drink it and enjoy it. In the meantime keep it refrigerated."
Would this turn out ok? I'd let it ferment as much as possible before fridging it to get rid of all the sugar possible.
It seems a very quick and hassle free method but is probably tooooo easy to be good knowing my luck. Do you folks think this method produce reasonable cider?
