The lack of body in just storebought Juice/Yeast is due partialy to the kind of yeast (ale yeast leaves a bit more body), and also due to the lack of tannins or acid in storebought juice, which is made from dessert apple varities most of the time, not hard cider apples. I have attempted to add back in acid and tannins using black tea and lime juice, the recipe is in my drop down.


Primary:Russian River Redemption clone, Kelly's Melomel, Graham's English Cider 22-23
Clearing:Apple Wine
Aging:Public House Dry Stout, Procrastination Porter, Mr. Brown Ale, Westvleteren 12 Clone, Mead, Duvel Clone, Graham's English Cider 6-21, Belgian Draak Strong Ale, Fig Melomel, Acerglyn, Restorative Tonic Metheglyn
