Thanks for the reply Joe. I've bought it before and really liked the taste. It's different and
it's cheap...and it's without the fructose additions normally found in cheap juice. I assumed
that was wh...

Lalvin D-47 or K1-1116NottinghamMy top three.What he said! D-47 left a "granny smith apple"
taste the couple times I used it. K1-1116 is the more tame version of 1118 (that's a good
thing!) Notty is a...

Is it the apple juice punch blend that was used? Not sure if there is another "blend" I didn't
Posted in thread: Why clear vs cloudy cider. on 11-08-2013 at 04:30 AM

Not sure what you will need for cyser, but I have successfully done 14% ABV with Nottingham in
