Has anyone dry hoped cider? I have a 3 gallon batch ready to rack to secondary and 1/4 to 1/2 oz of Hallertauer left over from a few brews ago. Any ideas how this would work?

What kind of cider do you have? Maybe you can split off a gallon so if you don't like it, its not a total loss.

Ya, I think I would split it off. I feel like all that alcohol will extract a lot of aroma from the hops which may overpower the cider, but maybe not. Worth a try. What part of MA are you in?

Still up in the air -I might leave it alone or just do a gallon. From Worcester.
