    Pappers,I'm fermenting my cider dry, want to back sweeten with raw cider, bottle condition and
    pasteurize per your thread. But I'm a little unsure about how much to back sweeten to (to what
    gravity?) ...

    When we started I went to LHBS, told them I wanted a "quality" kit. He set me up with

    apple varietie...

Reality is an illusion that occurs due to the lack of alcohol. Give a man a beer, he'll drink for the day.Teach a man to brew, he'll be drunk the rest of his life. I have 8 carboys, 8 cornies, 5-1 gal jugs, 200 wine bottles, 10 cases of beer bottles and a nice assortment of flip tops....My goal is to keep them at least 50% occupied
