    Cuz I'm relatively new and didn't know better? Was this a terrible idea? I planned to dry hop
    the cider and did so shortly after yooper answered. I used 11 grams of fuggle in one jug and
    5.5 grams in ...

    Thanks yooper! I'll definitely do that.

    today as I inten...

    Bummer. Thanks for the reply. I'm planning on pasteurizing right after bottling. Do I still
    need to add sulfites or will the pasteurization be enough?

    I decided today would be as good a day as any to bottle three of my 1 gallon batch ciders that
    have been doing their thing in a closet for the past 7 months.I moved one to the kitchen and
    noticed ther...
