    Oops! Clarification: I meant for carbing it, not for sweetening. I drink it unsweetened but
    apple juice is the most obvious choice. Using a liquid is the easiest way to do it. People who
    bottle it sti...

    Many thanks. I think that's a good idea. I will give it another week in secondary, then carb
    it.Do you use apple juice, honey, maple syrup, corn sugar, brown sugar, white sugar, sugar in
    the raw, or.....

    All,I started this cider - - a few weeks back. I just moved this to secondary - went from
    1.060 to 1.000 - 8% ABV or thereabouts. It has a slightly bitter flavor. Would y'all recommend
    leaving it in...

    I will do so. My thinking was that grape / apple blends can be quite good, so I decided to try
    the same...fermented.

    Did you like the result? That term, "difference," does not imply a good outcome, automatically.
    :)I've done the same but with cran or pom and it made a difference.

    All,I recently started a cider with 4.5 gallons apple cider (from Costco - no preservatives,
    seasonal...good stuff) and .5 gallon grape juice by Paul Newman (also de Costco). I sprinkled a
    packet of C...

    All,Made a hard cider using 5 gallons of apple cider, plus 2 cans of concentrate. Started with
    regular yeast, which didn't really go for long, then added champagne yeast as a secondary
    yeast, which I ...
