Clear up confusion on cider please?
I do mostly beer brewing, but as we have one of the largest cider mills in NY state down the road from me, i figured i"d put it to good use.
What I have access to is Mayer Brothers Pasturized Sweet Apple Cider.
first question: Is this different from the "apple juice" requested by Edwort's apfelwein - or is it the same? If it's not the same, can I use it for the recipe with similar results?
second: I read a fair bit on UV vs boil pasturization. As I'm just having some fun with it, can I use this product, which is boiled - or will it turn out awful, and I should "only" use UV pasturized or unpasturized juice?
Lastly - anyone have any suggesitons for what to do with all of this cider that I'll be very happy with? Looking to pull somethng off that makes me excited for cider season.
