I did my first cider with 2 LBS. brown sugar, and Red Star Pasture Champaign yeast. It was too dry, with no flavor.
My second batch is still in the primary, but I didn't use any sugar, and I'm using Wyeast Cider yeast 4766. It is suppose to be dry with a fruity finish. I'm hoping this yeast will leave me some flavor, and the lack of sugar will be less dry.
