Just finished up this Cider. Took a case over to a friends house for dinner last night. It went over fantastically. Great recipie. I will be making this one again for sure. One thing is true, it dose get better with age. Even cold crashing for a week after bottling inproves flavors. I can't wait to see what it will be like in a month.
My OG : 1.071
my FG : 1.012 7.72%abv
Backsweetened with 2 cans of F/CAJmixed with H2O to make 2 qt, to a bottling gravity of 1.030.
Finial alcohol content : 7%ish

Allright - nice to have found this recipe. Seems straightforward and I'm feeling brave. This will be my first ever brew attempt - starting tonight. I have some vanilla beans I may throw in there also, seems like the right thing to do as they're languishing in my pantry. Will keep you posted and probably will hop back with questions. Ideally I just want to get a cider going and aging more for the fall-ish timeframe - if it lasts that long. Lots of time and more than a few carboys - starting a beer on Sunday as well. Thanks for all the tips!!!

Second batch is in secondary. OG was a whopping 1.080. SG at transfer to secondary was already at 1.018. Thats 8.25%ABV. Will be bottling this weekend. Should be good to drink by next week!

I am going to be trying this wonderful recipe in the next few weeks. Everything i've read says that cider mellows over time...so I'm going to make this middle of Sept and again in Oct and have it ready for Oct and then some christmas parties.

I'm going to scale it for 5 gallons though...so I can keg it!

Just started up a batch of this, followed it to a T, but couldnt find any nutmeg and I added 3 cups of white sugar instead of 1lbs, ended up with an SG of 1.080, should be fun when it is finished , also didnt have Nottingham, so I got premiere cuvee yeast from red star. I hope it is still good, as my LHBS doesnt sell Nottingham

I guess I don't understand why you would get bottle bombs if you let it completely ferment? Can someone help me understand this?
