Well, here it is. Got a perfect fizz to it but don't think it's perfect yet. Still young and not quite as sweet as I intended, but drinkable

I've had this fermenting for about 9 days now and the airlock is still bubbling away about 1 bubble every 30 seconds also there is a layer of crasen I don't know how to spell it the foam on top is still about 2" thick how long does it usually take to dry out?

Starting a 5 gal batch of this today but am thinking about throwing a bag of frozen berries in with it to ferment. Then backsweeten/carb with honey possibly.

So I had my first overflow from the airlock with this cider. Added a bag of frozen mixed berries and this morning it was all over the table. I poured a gallon into a different carboy and snuck a taste. I think this one is going to be a winner!

I've made this 3 times and every-time I used a blow off tube. And the tube was constantly full of yeast and other funk.

This is my third batch I hard cider. The first 2 were apple juice and back sweetened with apple juice concentrate. This time I used apple cider instead of juice and back sweetened with 2 cans apple concentrate and 1 can raspberry lemonade concentrate and 2 bags of frozen rasberrys ( directly into keg. I have a stainless mesh filter on my keg so I figured it would stop the rasberrys from clogging the line... Was I wrong next time I'll put the rasberrys in a dry hop bag

Tastes delicious though and strong as hell I had 3 glasses and I'm done. Wow

Is everyone force-carbonating this recipe? Has anyone tried to bottle carb or just keep as a smooth cider? I'd like to try this but don't have equip for force carb as I'm a newbie and not ready for that kind of commitment . . . or at least my wife isn't! Thanks in advance for any feedback.
