So I started my first batch of cider from a recipe I found on the web.

5 gallons Cider
1.5 lbs brown sugar
.5 lb honey
2 packages yeast

OG 1.070 - Sept 27

Oct 4 - racked to secondary - SG 1.000

I wish I would have read more on this forum earlier because it is now some seriously acidic stuff, and I probably would/should have cold crashed it long before hand as I generally like a sweeter cider. Anyway, it is still in the secondary today and I'm wondering what to do. I know many dry wine fans so I'm open to suggestions as to what my next steps should be to end up with something that will eventually be drinkable.

kill the yeast and add sugar to your taste. problem is that you dont get carbonation this way that i know of.
