    I used 1118 as well. It seems like a good, bomb proof yeast. Took less that a week to reach
    near terminal gravity. But the cider is super dry. Yesterday I sampled another bottle. It had a
    really apple...

    If it's too tart, forget about it a year and then you might have a really nice dry cider.I've
    used the Lalvin EC1118 yeast a few times - and it always ferments out super dry. It takes a
    long time to a...

    Ah, I see. I'll back it off and give it a try. Went to the brewer supply to buy more bottles,

    Interesting! I see Goodlands are on the list. They are the omnipresent Winnipeg apple. Tasty
    and prolific. We have a freezer full right now, all sliced for apple pie.I picked up a keg kit
    and it's ful...

    Johnboy is the nearby operation. Way cheaper to buy fresh cider when it's available rather than

    I'm in La Salle so not far from you! I've only done ciders with store bought juice, but I try
    to use a variety. I've looked into pressing apples but there is only one place nearby that does
    it, and it...

    Lalvin EC1118 is cheap, readily available, foolproof, and will ferment out very dry.

    Just happened that I made two batches at once and still have some left a year old. It's just
