I've only used white table sugar - although you could use just about any fermentable sugar to acheive a carbonated cider, to include juice concentrate.

So i just started a 3gal version of this today. Tripled all the ingredients but was only able to fit a little less than 2.5gal of juice. My SG = 1.080(seems kinda high: but im new to this) then i added about another half gallon of juice to wash in the yeast. Will keep everyone posted on my gravity progress.

Hey all. I'm thinking of making this and have a few questions as I'm a noob at cider craft. Only made two batches so far. When you say sugar, are you referring to dextrose or do you use store bought granulated sugar? I want to ultimately rack this into my 3 gallon carboy as the secondary. Do I need to double or triple this recipe to fit into the three gallon carboy? Also, if I were to use my brew bucket as the primary, would the blackberries stain the bucket? When you pitch the yeast, do you rehydrate or just dump it in? Appreciate your help. I'm sure I will have questions later about backsweetening as I have yet to try my hand at it.

I did a three gallon batch and I just tripled all the ingredients. I also just pitched my yeast dry and washed it down the funnel with more juice.
Hope this helps.

I'm new to ciders, and am looking to make this soon. I just have a couple questions:
I assume the sugar you used to backsweeten is also the priming sugar?
How long did you wait to pasturize to get a decent carb level? I was thinking 7-10 days if you used the cup of white table sugar.

Yes, the cup of sugar provided the carbonation. IIRC, it took about 5 or so days to carb up.
