    I wasn't on planning on carbing the cider but, you're right Wade, not worth the risk. I wonder
    if there is less chance of broken glass injuring someone if they use something like this (

    Hi group,I thought I would try using wine instead of beer bottles for my cider this year. I
    picked up a good number of bottles from a local restaurant but about two-dozen or so are twist
    off type bott...

    The main body is 100% pressed. I tasted it before moving to secondary and it seemed to not have
    much "apple flavor". I have two batches, so I'll probably backsweeten one and carb the second.

    Hey Group,I'd like to backsweeten my cider with some apple cider. It looks like a lot of folks
    us apple concentrate. I have some left over cider from the pressing that I've had in the

    Good point. I'll add 1 or 2 cans of concentrate.

    Right. I will add Potassium Sorbate in order to halt fermentation. My question is whether 1 gal
    of sweet cider is enough to impart the appley taste.

  • Posted in thread: My first cider on 01-04-2009 at 05:32 AM
    I had a similar experience. Initial SG was 1.065. About a month in SG was at 1.034. It took
    another month to drop to 1.005 at which point I racked to secondary. I was a little worried of
    off tastes bu...

    I'm going to go for still. Would 1 gallon added to 6 gallons be enough to impart apple flavor?
    I guess I could also add some concentrate but I wanted to stick with as much natural flavors as
