+1 how much lactose did you add with your priming sugar??!! I am going to Julian (socal home of apple pie) and and going to pick up a sh*tload of fresh pressed cider and try this out. I expect it to ferment dry, but am trying to guage how much lactose to add to give it some (no overly so) body and sweetness.

I just tasted the batch I made but it's not sweet like I hoped. Had 4 variation of priming method too. But that tart smell is so horrid!

Default which is the outright best yeast to use to avoid Dry hard cider?

After researching for over 1 month now, I am still unsure which is the best yeast to use to avoid my cider becoming dry. Please is there anybody who knows a winning recipe to get away from it fermenting into dry cider? Or just tell me a full proof yeast that will help a sweetness settle during fermentation... yes I know, we can backsweeten, freeze yeast, etc. I don't want to do any of these things. Can I not just let it ferment and then age into sweet hard cider with the correct yeast? Advice on this H.brew issue would be great guys:-) cheers

Joey, try an ale yeast and get a og up in the 15% alcohol range.... thats the only surefire way of getting a semi sweet cider... otherwise yes you will have to back sweeten and the like.

If mine is to dry I just add some wine sweetener to taste. 🍺

Hay anyone else tried the lactose option? I saw someone had mentioned it but didn't give the amount per gallon? I am really trying to make something that my wife will enjoy!
