Default First Cider

I just threw a cider together last night. Pretty simple:

4.5 gallons of apple juice (no preservatives)
3 cups table sugar
3 cups Light Malt Extract
Safbrew t-58 (dry)

I plan to ferment it for no less than 6 weeks, than rack to secondary for as long as it takes to clear. (2-3 more weeks)

I suppose I may have to back sweeten it before secondary with some concentrated apple juice.

Hope it turns out good.

looks intresting,

Please post notes after you get around to drinking it

T-58 in a very unique yeast, it should impart some noteworthy flavors
