First time making it, any suggestions?

cider or apple juice?
corn sugar, brown sugar, or honey?
Carbed or not?

Check the first post in the Apfelwein thread. The most successful recipe on this site is Apfelwein made with apple juice, corn sugar and Red Star Montrachet yeast.

Now if you want to start talking about cider recipes there is a whole subforum on the subject.

Maybe I'm just boring, but for the first time out, I'd probably follow the system that seems to work the best - then start tweaking it from there...

Can't go wrong with Ed's original recipe, although some have tried. It's good, but not hard cider. More like an apple wine.

I made mine without the extra sugar, and might do that next time. Mine's a bit weak in flavor and weak in alcohol too. It's a good refreshing beverage and cheap and easy to make.
