Default Clark's Apple Cherry Cider

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Pasteur Champagne
Yeast Starter: No
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: No
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.090
Final Gravity: 1.000
Boiling Time (Minutes): 0:00
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14
Additional Fermentation: No
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21-28

My Take on cider, Everyone Around my Place loves it and its something a little diffrent to try.

4 Gallons Apple Juice (No Pres.)
1 Gallon Cherry Juice (No Pres.)
1 Lbs Dextrose or Brown Sugar which ever, I tasted no Difference.

2 Packets Pasteur Champagne

Primary for 14 days
Secondary for 21-28 days

Fermented at 72 degrees

Bottle with 3/4 Cup Dextrose

Tastes better the longer you Cold age it or "Lager" it.

The Cherry in mine is just for color, you can only taste the apple, But as long as what your using has no Preservatives in it try it, Then Let us know how it turns out!

When talking about Apple Juice with no Preservatives... I could only find juice from concentrate with Ascorbic Acid added (Vit C I think). Will this work for this recipe, or are we talking Organic Juice only where the only thing listed in the ingredients list is apples?

I dont think that is a Preservative, usually I think they add sodium benzo....Something Dont know the exact word.

That sounds interesting. It doesn't really change the taste from straight apfelwein? I was thinking about cranberry juice for the last batch I threw together. But, I couldn't find anything that had less than 6 different things in it.

Well Gent's I did it, I am trying my first cider

I pitched the Dry English Ale yeast for a few days. (man I love my home made stir plates)



I mixed up the following in my Korny Keg.
a) 4.5 gallons of all natural pressed Apple Juice (ala Trader Joes)
b) .5 gallons Cherry Juice (ala Trader Joes)
c) .5 gallons Distilled Water (ala Home Water Filter)
d) ahh crap what is missing, doh the freakin; 1 Lbs Dextrose or Brown Sugar

Time in to the Keg was March 27th 2008 @ 7:00PM PST
Time in Keg at this post is 22hr est. (slight activity out of the blow off tube)
SG is 1042
FG is (TBD)

I guess I will just have to wait and see, to bad I for got to add the Sugar as recommended....DOH! o-well learning is a process I guess.
