This will be my 2nd batch of hard cider. Although I received rave reviews for the 1st batch, I felt there needed to be more substance in this one. Tried going with a 4 gallon heat and mix for the brown sugar just to ensure a full mixture and cooled to 75 before pitching. Will add the last gallon with 2 cinnamon sticks and oak in the secondary for some active but flavorful additions. Hoping for a Labor Day ready BBQ batch this year.
Last batch ended up too dry for my tastes and didn't have the oak, so am hoping for a sweeter but more substantial finish.

Thanks for the recipe!

Sorry to drag up an old thread....however, I made this recipe 4 months ago and now would like to bottle in 1.5 gallon glass jugs. Do I need to add anything when bottling?

Quick ? Would it be ok to leave this in the primary and not do a secondary?

I added some carb tabs to it. Came out nice. I only added half of what the label said to add for beer and it about blew the flip top off when I opened it! Im glad I didn't add the whole amount. Very nice recipe. My wife really likes it.

I was going to try this recipe for my very first cider. But I only have a 1 gallon kit so I was wondering if this would work well that small:

1 gallon cider
1 lb. dark brown sugar
1 package of wine yeast

Do I not add any other additives? I come from the world of fruit wine where you have to use yeast nutrient, pectic enzyme, Campden tablets, acid blend, etc. Do I not need any of those for this recipe? Really want to make this come out as best I can the first time around. Thanks in advance!
-Bill
