    Red Star Côte des Blancs. It will ferment apple juice totally dry, but it doesn't strip out the
    apple flavor and aroma. I like it either dry, or dissolve 1 sugar cube or a packet of Splenda
    in a littl...

    As long as you're carbonating in the bottle you'll get sediment. That's the yeast dying off
    after converting the remaining sugar to alcohol/co2.The only way to get a sediment free bottle
    is to either ...

    The smart alec in me wants to say that no, your cider has not gone too dry...that's impossible.
    Then I realize that each of us has our own personal taste and preference and for some that is
    sweeter dr...

    mid-September are s...

    What yeast were you using? I had some bottles of ginger ale blow in my fridge. I used EC1118.

    How do they taste? I've never found an ornamental crabapple that was even close to edible, and
    haven't even tried to press them. But 1.070 means quite a lot of sugar!I'd say they taste
    awful. I haven'...

    I found 50 ornamental crabapple trees. They are the size of a wild cheery (pea). Bright red.
    Bitter. Really sweet. Crazy towel mouth. Are these any good in a blend for cider?Just picked
    about 14 gallo...

    I make a fantastic 100% crabapple wine. The mix is about 50% rescue (like dolgos) and 50%
    centennial crabs. I tend to use 6 pounds per gallon, crushed and then pressed (or squeezed) and
    dilute with a ...
