Ginger peach apple cider my brew buddy and I made a little over a year ago. Cleared up well,
the slight haze is from drunk pouting a bottle conditioned brew.

I've used s-05 quite a bit and have never had an issue with it. Usually only took about 10-15
days for fermentation to completely stop. As for clearing, I cold crash before I bottle, it
will stay a bi...

Good thing you have a lot of head space on that thing, 1.100 is a monster gravity for a cider,

like it'll be...
Posted in thread: what's your favorite yeast for making cider? on 10-29-2012 at 09:25 PM
Ive used s-04, red star champagne, s-05, and multiple Belgian strains. For everyday use I

I personally like my cider carbonated as well. You can always taste your gravity sample and see
if you think you'd like it better still or carbonated. It's really all preference. I had a

Also, if you're using fresh apples I'm assuming you're pasteurizing somehow. If you're using
campden tablets you want to wait to pitch your yeast. It was also recommended to me to leave no
water in th...

I've found that using ground cinnamon in cider causes it to clump up. The first time I did it,
there weren't any clumps I could see. The second time though, I used a fair bit more, trying to
get a str...
