Default What's your favorite recipe?

Here's my favorite so far, still have many to try.

The following is for 3 gallons:

4 cans of frozen apple juice concentrate
4 cans of frozen concord grape juice concentrate
3 pounds light brown sugar
one packet champagne yeast

primary for 2 weeks
rack every 2 weeks and drink in about 12 weeks.

In another thread, you mentioned that you rack off a half gallon at a time when you want to drink it. I suppose that means it's still cider? Or do you prime the half gallon that you rack off?

That's it, no priming. Out of the carboy and into the frig. I prefer it still over sparkling.

I don't have any way to check the gravity at start and finish, so I can't give you any idea where it's at. I just wait for the activity to stop. When it's clear I figure that's good enough.
