3 1/2 gallons Tree Top 3 Apple Blend
1/2 gallon R.W. Knudsen Just Black Cherry Juice

WLP060

It's young now but already delightful. Fruity and slightly sweet. It tastes enough like a jolly rancher to appeal to your sweet tooth; Not so sweet you feel like a girl drink drunk. I'm pleased. If I decide to make this again (and probably will next spring) I think I'll add brown sugar to deepen the color and dry it out a little more.

First Recipe post let me know if I need to change anything up!

PROST!

I added 1tbsp of liquid sucralose and 1 tbsp of Apple flavoring. This is super drinkable, tastes like juice. I'll definitely be making this again

Waiting for bottles to sanitize in dishwasher, took a picture of uni blood nice and clear and ready for bottling. Lower left is Dynamic Healths pure 100% black cherry concentrate to flavor and back sweeten. No clue how much I'm gonna use but just took a tiny sip and holy crap, is it strong!!! Must use with caution...ATTACH]188765[/ATTACH]

Ended up pooring 16oz. Pure black cherry concentrate out of the 48oz. I had purchased. At 3/4 bottle in, still tasted a bit dry then the extra 1/4 bottle hit the sweet spot. Sipping on some leftovers now, still young but not too bad.

Now all carbed up with perfect fizz and tastes pretty good, but needs to age for a bit

Question about back sweeting with frozen apple juice. Do you add this into the secondary and let it sit for a couple of days then cold crash? Also do I have to pasteurize?
Or are you guys just adding the can of apple juice at bottling? And then also carbing at how many grams of sugar per gallon? I have this in the secondary now getting ready to bottle/keg.
Here it is when transferring from primary to secondary.

Thanks everyoneAttachment 202174

Bottled a batch of this today. I deviated from the original recipe a little. 4gal of apple juice, always save brand, 2x 32oz bottles of Black Cherry, 4x cans of frozen concentrate, and juice to top off the carboy. OG was 1.054, FG 1.002. Primed with 4oz Dextrose, and ended up with 52 12oz bottles.

Pitched on 3Sept14, bottled today.
