    Update: I've decided to transfer my cider to a secondary. Gravity is 1.020, down from 1.095
    starting, so we're right around 10% ABV. I've carmelized the honey and I've added to a half
    full secondary. ...

    Dang, I don't know why I was thinking they were more. I know a long time ago, there was a 1%
    difference I thought, but I'm thinking back like 7-8 years. Well, I guess that settles it. lol

    I was shooting for 1.030 because I didn't want it to be too strong and/or taste too much like
    wine. The Woodchuck Amber that we like is only 6% ABV, so I didn't want to get too much higher
    than 8-9%. ...

    Just wanted to send an update. We used 120lbs of apples from a friend's tree. We basically cut
    the cores out and used a machine to grind everything up. The machine would spit the peels out

    Thanks for the reply bro. I'll leave the chemicals out of it, hopefully it goes well. :-D

    New to brewing, looking to make my first Cider here soon (love Woodchuck Amber). I did an Irish
    Red Ale as my first brew and it turned out great! I'm wanting to get some local apple cider,
    but will pr...
