Yeah, I just heated up the honey until it was thinner, then let it cool for a bit.
One slight issue is that I did have a bottle bomb in the pasteurizing process.

I took out the bottles following Pappers' instructions, and was letting them sit on the kitchen countertop to cool, when one of them busted open.

No injuries or anything, I just got cider all over my pants. I'm going to let these bad boys age for a bit in a crate and see how they turn out.

So far not bad oldmate!

What temperature did you get it to? It might have been caused by an imperfection in the glass, rather than any gases! Glad there was no injuries!

I would like to try this but using maple syrup instead of honey, possibly even both. I'll be doing that this weekend, keep you all posted.

Hey oldmate, how long do you let these guys bottle age?

I found it drinkable almost straight away. I think that was because I sweetened it up a bit too much initially. It depends on how long you let it age in bulk. I would say 3 months in either storage, bulk or bottles. As long as it is clear, I would say crack one open and see how it tastes. The longer you leave it, the more the apple taste will return!

I hope you like it!

Had this bottled for a week now, thought I'd open up a small bottle to test it and I must say I really liked it.

Thanks for the recipe, I'll be doing this again.

I carmelizec the sugar and then added it right away to the carboy....added the apple juice and all the carmelized sugar instantly hardened. Is this intentional should i have done this differently?
