Started this 3 weeks ago, and it's still bubbling slowly away (it's winter here). Can't wait till it goes clear, it smells absolutely amazing. I used Red Ironbark honey for the honey, it is the best honey I have ever tasted in my life. SO EXCITED.

Just bottled this stuff up, I had to cold crash it to get some yeast out of suspension instead of waiting for it to clear up on it's own to make room for some new brews coming through this week. Although it's a bit harsh, I can see this tasting pretty amazing in a few months!!

Cider newb, could you bottle this in glass? And im used to putting sugar in each bottle, i've done a couple batches of beer so i have an idea,but how do you put the sugar in with the cider when its time to bottle? Is cider like beer in that you have to worry about oxidizing it? I greatly appreciate any guidance given!!!

Also instead of doing a starter could you use multiple packs of yeast?

So this tastes like candy? It seems that with all that adjunct sugar it would be super dry. I've been brewing for a year now so I'm still a little puzzled with some things.

I suspect that the OG of the original batch is so high that the alcohol content of the brew is halting the fermentation before all of the sugar has been consumed.

I had a brew with an incredibly high OG that did the same thing, though mine was accidental rather then intentional..

EDIT: This sounds yummy. I'm putting it on the list of to brews.

I just don't know. One part of my loves the idea... One part of me is thinking of the maple syrup scene in Super Troopers. Might have to scale this down to a gallon and see what it's all about.

Just letting you know that I was going through a bunch of my empty bottles and stumbled upon a leftover one that I forgot to drink. Chilled it down and dear god, it was probably one of the best home brew ciders I have had. Judging from my previous post on this thread it was about a year and 4 months from bottling.
