Default Pappy`s Pub Cider

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Lalvin EC-1118
Yeast Starter: optional
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: optional
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: off the charts
Final Gravity: tbh i forgot
IBU: n/a
Boiling Time (Minutes): none
Color: apple
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14-28 days @ room temp
Additional Fermentation: in bottles as long as you like
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14-28 days @ room temp
Tasting Notes: Still sweet but potent

5 gals of tree top apple juice (sometimes Motts if the store is out of tree top)
10 LBS table sugar (wal mart brand cheap stuff)
1 packet Lalvin EC-1118 yeast
1 tablespoon yeast nutrient (wyeast beer nutrient blend)

No rocket science here, just dump everything in the carboy and let the champagne yeast do it's thing.Primary till all bubbling of the air lock stops then wait a week.After the week is up rack to 2ndary (optional)
I used "super-kleer K.C."{kieselsol-chitosan} in 2ndary (optional) to clear the cider and the stuff is amazing.Cold crash in the freezer for an hour and bottle.

Do not attempt to drive,operate heavy machinery,or anything requiring coordination or basic motor skills after drinking this.

Cheers.

Thanks for sharing, Paps. I have wine equipment kit on the way soon, and want to start with a simple cider that doesn't take too long to finish. This looks like a good option.

I just started a batch of this last night. The primary is going strong and I will check back in when I transfer to the secondary.

Basicly the same recipe I've used several times now... great stuff, and YES you will get SMASHED! I figger ABV should be around 14 or so, maybe better.

Should I worry about putting a blowoff tube on if I am using a 5 gallon bucket? And I don;t have any yeast nutrient, so should I just throw in 2 packets of Lalvin EC1118?

even without nutrient 1 packet is enough, the yeast will multiply in the first 48 hrs assuming they get oxygen for the first 24.
If you don't have nutrient, use a bananna peel n all. what u wanna do is cut the butt stem off then slice the whole 'nanna into pennies. 1 'nnana per gallon. They will provide sufficient nutrient and will leave any flavor. use the ones that have a few black spots on the peel. I have an "ale pale" it has the small hole in the lid for an airlock. I put a empty airlock on and swirl the bucket 2 or 3 times a day for first two days, and gently push down on the lid and hold a second or so then release, that will exchange some air for the yeast to get oxygen.

Cider doesn't get as foamy as all grain beer does but i do use my 6.5 gallon glass carboy for this recipe.I don't see it being physically possible to get 5 gallons of apple juice AND 10 lbs of sugar in a 5 gallon carboy/bucket.
However you could just do 4 gallons juice to 8 lbs sugar and have room for everything.

If you do not have yeast nutrient you can get a cheap box of raisins (prefferably organic and no preservatives) and throw them in the carboy and they will suffice.Doing this you will only need 1 packet of yeast.

Has anyone ever added cinnamon sticks to this recipe. Just wondering about the flavor difference if you have.
