I give this two thumbs up!
Yeah, the original version is very sweet! The English cider yeast you are using will make it a little more dry, which some prefer... I've toned mine down a bit on the syrup and concentrates as well, they're a hit especially with the summer BBQ's.

Quick question... Is this concentrate the sort of thing i can use in the syrup? http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B005GDU5D8/ref=mp_s_a_1?qid=1366506485&sr=8-1&pi=SL75
Concentrates seem rare in the UK and that is all I can find except for grape. Lack of concentrates prevents me using many nice looking recipes on this site!

Andy,

Yes that is exactly what some of my friends over there are using and it turns out great.

Fellow cider-lovers,

I have read hundreds of posts on a dozen different threads, but I still come away confused about how to proceed with my first batch of cider. I am sincerely hoping you can give me a little clarity about my situation.
I would like to make 5 gallons of this recipe. I have a keg, and plan to force carb. Things that have me confused include: campden, or no? phosphate or no? when to add syrup mixture?

Thanks in advance for your help. I'm really looking forward to this project on Saturday.

~B

I've made this cider twice. I love it. I used campden and phosphate. I put the syrup in before I force carb it. Now I think I'm actually screwing up there, when I go to bottle gun it out I always get a cup full of yuck syrup that I toss, but the cider has the nice syrup flavor. I also had a heck of time getting it carbed, took about 4 weeks at 25-35psi so next time I'm going to back sweeten it less by making a weaker syrup.

Hey guys! Newbie here. I just made this cider in a gallon batch with Notty yeast and I love the color and taste. Can't wait to see how it goes once bottle carbing for a bit, pasteurizing, and conditioning. But a question - is there anyway to break down the cinnamon for the future? I don't have the globs of syrup problem, but there are a bit too many specks of cinnamon for my preference. I'd love to get it a bit smoother without sacrificing that wonderful cinnamon taste.

IMO cinnamon will only really break down under boil, very hard to get into solution otherwise. So you could boil some water toss in the cinnamon, wait for chill and pitch it in, perhaps even at bottle time.
