I too have had no luck finding the concentrate. I live in Mississppi and we have koger here but no concentrate. I want to make this really bad as my first cider. Do you have and advise as to using beer yeast instead of using champ. or wine yeast. Also if i still cant find the concentrate what else would you recomend. I seen pomegratne juice and black cherry juice but i dont know the ratio of juice compared to concentrate. Thanks and CHEERS

I don't really know the ratios would be either. You should be able use mostly any concentrate. As far as regular juice you could just do it by taste. never made the cider using beer yeast but it wouldn't hurt to try

I have never made a cider and this grabbed me, I dont like dry ciders, and i read on here to use ale yeast for a sweeter cider. you say any concentrate would work what did you mean. I can't find and cherry or pomegrante concentrate.

Question. This is in my primary. I want to bottle it but also want to back sweeten. How does the back sweeten mix with the priming sugars? Procedure? Help!

You would need to pasteurize to stop fermentation before the bottles explode.

There are a few good writeups on the forums on how to back sweeten and bottle that can better explain it than me.

i couldn't find the OO cherry/pom within 200 miles of me. so... i got the cherry/pom from pom. only issue i have is it is not quite sweet enough (it's dry but still very tasty). if using this, maybe add 1/2 pound of sugar/brown sugar?

thoughts?
