Campside Honey Cyser
1 gallon recipe
3.5 lbs of Honey
.5 gallon apple juice
1 cup orange juice
fill the rest of the gallon with water
I add dashes of...
bitter orange peel
*I go lighter on these in the summer, heveir for a winter batch
pitch Lalvin K1-V1116 and begin the long hard wait.
Once things get going for a month or so, I sometimes toss in a handful berries, or perhaps cherries in winter
Ferment at least 4 months, then I usually bottle and wait another month or so.
Sorry I don't have any gravity measurements, but I tend to wing things and play them by ear. It's worked out well so far. Plus, when you're only doing 1 gallon at at time, it's a shame to steal any before it's ready.
