All good advice. I skip the aeration as I feel it get enough when I grind and press. Cider likes to age a long time, mine tasted the best right as I ran out a full year after pressing.

I know this is a 3 year old thread but since its up here I need to clarify that none of this applies to cider. All the sugars are simple and completely fermentable. Attenuation does not apply here.

Next time maybe you want to think about using frozen concentrate to prime. I consider it my last chance to add more flavor.

Just my opinion but if your going through more beer than cider you just might not have had a good cider yet. I haven't brewed a batch of beer in 3 years after I tasted my first batch of cider.

Hey Greg, you should link to claudes site for him. He has a great write up on acidity. I do consider 3.1 to be on the high acid side as mine ends up at around 3.4 and is still to acidic for many. I...

It doesn't matter what kind of yeast you use in cider, it always ends up dry. Read pappers sticky for good ideas on making it sweet.

+1 on all the advice given. proper ph can be quite subjective. mine is on the high acid side and quite a few people rave about it. the only other thing i can suggest is ditch all your additions.

Wait, 775 really likes aging, more so than most yeast from my studying. Mine continues to improve to the last bottle a full year after pressing.

It's easy if you have a choice of apples to press. Choose the more acidic ones. If your making Walmart hooch use an acid to taste. Most people are trying to get the sour/tart out of there cider.
