So we used two cans of apple concentrate after killing the yeast. We then used I 120ml bottle
of maple syrup. Gotta say it only made it sweeter. didn't give any more of a maple taste. but
it was good....

I'm looking to make a dark and dry cider similar to the Spire from Fish brewing co. Does anyone
know how much molasses (approx) they use?

So I started my Xmas cider with 4 gallons of apple juice, 4lbs of brown sugar and 2lbs of sugar
in the raw with 1gallon of water. We plan to kill the yeast and back sweeten it with apple

Also, I see you have the 5 lbs of dark sugar to start. sounds delicious, but what's the tipping
point for too much sugar to start with? Is there a formula you use?

Will do. It'll be a Christmas brew so if I do it it won't post until then. I feel confident
that if I use only a small amount to start and kill the yeast it should be good and not too
sweet. I'll post...

I want to do a recipe similar to this one, but I would like to also add some maple syrup. Any
suggestions about how much to add and about when would be the best time to add it?
