I'm certain he meant 2 cans per can of concentrate.

I backsweeten mine the same way...without water just concentrate.

Chrisrush: The 2 cans (no water) really does a nice job of adding the apple flavor and sugar back into a dry cider. I've done this several times and am quite pleased with its effect.

I just pulled my first pint of this recipe, and I must say it turned out exactly how I was hoping. The two cans of concentrate really kick up the apple flavor and increase the sugar just to the right level. I'm very happy with how it turned out. Now I'm deffinately going to have to keep this one on tap all the time!

Might be a tough year for apple cider. Around here the crop is running 15-50% of normal. Too much rain at blossom time.

Yeah, there several orchards down here in Southern Oregon I go to for "u pick" fruit. And one of them was totally fruitless. The rain and hail destroyed all the blossoms on the entire orchard!

I was shocked... Hard times for the orchards.

I can confirm just using two cans of concentrate (no water added) is the key. Also... I just thought of it, but if you added juice WITH preservatives (potassium sorbate) it would probably be a good thing at this point.

Ive followed this recipie, but i used concentrate that i got in a kit, enough for 5 gallons, so i hpe thats ok, dilluted it as instructed on tegh kit, is that gonna be a problkem for this? As its a lot more dilluted than 2 parts water to 1 part concentrate.

I also experimented and added soem cinnamin sticks to this, and its been fermenting away nicely all week.

I may then, afetr readign this, when fermentation stops, add a couple of apple juices which contain pottasium sorbate, and even add some aswell just to be sure.

Yes the kit will work as well, I'm sure.. After all your just going to make some wine then flavor and sweeten.

Sorry to everyone about not posting I am in and out of town so much I never get the time.

Has anyone bottled this recipe? Just curious if adding any corn sugar before bottling has had any adverse effects?
