Selling for around 2 $ for 1/2 gal.

Nice to see a company trying to cater to folks who know the difference in Apple varietys. No preservatives, so you could add it to your ciders!

My only concern would be what are the 'natural flavors ' listed on the label. Have you tasted the two yet? Can you tell the difference?

Yes, I saw that too. No, I didn't buy any as I had run through all my brewing money for the month.

I saw those and ended up buying the apple cider gallon jugs for $4.48 or whatever. I dumped all 5 into a carboy, added some dextrose and yeast and called it a day.

I want to go back and get the gala and do a gallon batch. I am not sure what the natural flavors need to be in AJ.

I got a gallon of the "Honeycrisp" sweet cider, just to taste it & see if it would be worth fermenting. It's supposed to be pure Honeycrisp juice. It was tasty, but the difference was subtle. I don't think there's enough varietal flavour to come through fermentation. That being said, it would certainly make a good apfelwein or hard cider, just don't expect too much varietal flavour.
Regards, GF.

Exactly why I would recommend using them for back sweetening instead.

Otherwise if you aren't using fresh press or blended ciders after it ferments it will end up being mostly the same.

I would be wary, especially if it's anything like Orange Juice.

From The 6 Most Horrifying Lies the Food Industry is Feeding You

Quote:
Ever wonder why every carton of natural, healthy, 100 percent, not-from-concentrate orange juice manages to taste exactly the same, yet ever so slightly different depending on the brand, despite containing no additives or preservatives whatsoever?

The process indeed starts with the oranges being squeezed, but that's the first and last normal step in the process. The juice is then immediately sealed in giant holding tanks and all the oxygen is removed. That allows the liquid to keep without spoiling for up to a year. That's why they can distribute it year-round, even when oranges aren't in season.

Thanks to science, we can enjoy screwdrivers from Christmas to the 4th of July.

There is just one downside to the process (from the manufacturers' point of view, that is) -- it removes all the taste from the liquid. So, now they're stuck with vats of extremely vintage watery fruit muck that tastes of paper and little else. What's a poor giant beverage company to do? Why, they re-flavor that **** with a carefully constructed mix of chemicals called a flavor pack, which are manufactured by the same fragrance companies that formulate CK One and other perfumes. Then they bottle the orange scented paper water and sell it to you.

And, thanks to a loophole in regulations, they often don't even bother mentioning the flavor pack chemicals in the list of ingredients. Hear that low moan from the kitchen? That's the Minute Maid you bought yesterday. It knows you know.

All true a friend of mine worked at an OJ factory.
Never get pulp in your OJ. They have a acceptable maggot level in the pulp they add back to your "juice". And come on they do freeze the vats sometimes.
But yeah each vat was graded on color, aroma, consistency, mouthfeel and flavor among other things. And the appropriate additive was added to the juice to correct it so that all juice is just the same.
