This has to be one of the worst ideas i've ever heard of. Salvia Divinorum has an awful taste. It doesn't really taste like anything... just a "leaf" taste to it. Also, the main chemicals in Salvia...

I pitched my cider Friday night and it was not until Monday afternoon that I saw any air lock activity. If you have the time... you might want to repitch with another yeast? Good luck

Thank you very much! I am curious about using the lager yeast. How do you think lagering the cider would turn out? I know I've read that using a hefeweizen yeast turns out very well. Do you have any...

I'd have to agree... Don't use the bread yeast, it's simply not good! I tried it a few months ago out of boredom and it ended up horribly sour and left no apple flavor. Save your apple juice!

I don't own a hydrometer. This was the first apple cider I made and I figured 1 cinnamon stick and 1 clove per gallon wouldn't be too much. I don't know how good of quality the cloves and cinnamon...

I didn't mean I don't want to sweeten it, I only mean that I'd rather find a better solution is all. I'd rather try to combat it directly by adding sodium bicarbonate or something. I'm hoping to not...

No, it's definitely sour. It tastes like a lemon or warhead candy or something. I would think that there was a lot of spice but that was my goal. But when I took a sample while i was racking it, it...

Adding a pound of ultra light malt extract or two to a 5 gallon batch will make a malt beverage like Mike's hard lemonade. It'll contribute to the mouth feel
