    I do not have the luxury of a consistent place to cold crash. Yeah that's one of the few
    benefits of living up here where it's freezing!

    This is for a semi-sweet cider, around 7-8.5% ABV. This is different (and better in my opinion)
    than the dry white-wine style “cider” that folks often make. Ingredients-5 gallons

    I wouldn't toss it yet. Give it 6 months to a year. However, I will tell you that I have had
    very bad results with my 2 pear ciders and it is hard to find anything on HBT about a

    I would highly recommend fermenting as close to 60 degrees as possible. Keep an eye on the
    gravity, but it will most likely take a month or more at that temp.Most people prefer it semi-
    sweet as oppos...

    1/4 cup is a little less than i would use, but it should eliminate your worries about bottle
