Thanks for the prompt reply. I am actually currently making cider, not beer as I mistyped earlier. I used five gallons of apple juice (unpasteurized from a farm), five cinnamon sticks, a handful of cloves, a cup of granulated sugar, and one packet of Red Star dry champagne yeast. I was goin to put in two cups of brown sugar, but I ran out so I left that out. This is my first attempt at brewing, and I've run into a couple of bumps along the way. The wort took longer than I thought it would to cool because somebody used up all the ice right before I needed it. It ended up taking almost two hours, but I finally got it cooled and added the yeast. I pitched the yeast kind of warm, so it took 24 hrs or so to get going. I'm guessing this batch won't be the best, but it has been really fun, even if I get nothing out of it. I've learned a lot already, but I've only just begun.
